|Le Studio coopératif Premières Lignes (SPL) is a Québecois comic art/publishing collective in Gatineau, Québec. SPL’s main goals are to expand comic book readership among the general public, explore content and artistic forms atypical to comics and publicize French Canadian bandes dessinées. It publishes a number of emerging and established comic artists under a number of collections and is a unique operation in that few art collectives formed by comic artists exist in Canada.
Between September 2009 and September 2010, I was an administrator for SPL’s executive board. I also lay out books for the collective on occasion.
