A BRIEF HISTORY ... Sleeping Giant Comics was launched in 1995 with Death by Chocolate, a 32-page one-shot that introduced audiences to the
bizarre, often surreal works of David Yurkovich. Prior to publication, Yurkovich submitted
Death by Chocolate to the Xeric Foundation and was
subsequently granted funding for the project. Since then, Yurkovich has self-published
over a dozen books and, since 1998, has turned his attention to the graphic novel
format. He is presently working on Altercations, a graphic novel
scheduled to publish in late 2001. A Death by Chocolate
collection is also in the planning stages for 2001.
