The model of comics creators tethered to one or two major publishers, working on adventures of corporately-owned characters is no longer the only game in town. Many of the top talents in comics work either exclusively on their own material, while others work both sides of the street, alternating independent work with mainstream assignments done in their own distinctive styles. Here, speaking about how they have forged their own paths (and reading from their work), are some of the most distinctive creators in comics today: Peter Kuper (Spy Vs. Spy; Ruins), Dean Haspiel (Spider-Man; Billy Dogma), Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong; Action Philosophers), and Gabe Soria (Batman 66; House of Waxwork).

There will be a large section devoted to discussion at the end to talk about other little known or obscure characters that fall under this category.
