Each month, we are highlighting an independent publisher bringing important, challenging work to our shelves. This time around, we would like to proclaim our love for Chicago-based comics publisher 2dcloud. The peddlers of "quixotic projects and publications" are true comics renegades, bringing to life some of the most experimental and exciting work in the industry. Check out the praise from a couple of our favourite artists:
2dcloud is publishing some of the most exciting comics today. The intimacy of many of the works is mirrored in the thoughtful production.
— Jillian Tamaki, Boundless
2dcloud publishes artists who surprise me, which tends to be the experience I want most out of comics these days. Some of the most surprising artists working right now.
— Michael DeForge, Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero
