Sleeping Giant Creations is pleased to announce the re-release of THE SHOP (SUPER-HEROES OF PHILADELPHIA) graphic novel. Originally published in 2000 as a 64-page, black and white one-shot, the 2008 revision is now backing print as a full-color, 2-volume digital release. The digital SHOP graphic novel has been optimized for screen reading and requires no annoying mouse scrolling. Writer/illustrator David Yurkovich has revised the original illustrations, and the addition of digital color adds a new dimension to this unflinching story that blends big business, super-heroes, and the human condition.
A companion project to Yurkovich’s LESS THAN HEROES and DEATH BY CHOCOLATE graphic novels, each volume of THE SHOP is available exclusively on wowio.com as a free download. Volume 2 includes previously unseen supplemental materials and notes on the project’s creation and evolution.
