Slightly Bent Comics 1, 2


Slightly Bent Comics #1 and #2 are a creator-owned, character-introducing anthology, written by me and first published by Slightly Bent Entertainment in 1999.

I designed the logo and did the cover layouts, brought to life by amazing St. Louis comic artists under the art direction of Don Secrease.

Credits and reviews of these issues are on Steve’s Reads, on Flooby and on Atomic Avenue.

These issues include the second and third print appearances of the original Mall Cop, Mel Cop™.

It was a fun project, a deep-dive immersion into self-publishing during the black-and-white boom, and a petri dish for characters and concepts abornin’.

Plus, I was just learning InDesign. Can you tell?

You can find Slightly Bent Comics on eBay and Slightly Bent Comics on Amazon for a song.

Not all of them are, you know, bent.

At least condition-wise.
