Brian Dreger, President/Founder
SLOP COMICS began in 1975 as a joke…a sort of anti-Marvel Comics. The original staff were all fans of superhero comic books, but they grew up too fast and began to realize that a grown man wearing a cape was kind of silly.
SLOP's founder, Brian Dreger, calls the first issue of SLOP COMICS "an accident."
...
Although a physicist by training, Pete "Jones" (not his real last name; shyness and too many consonants prohibit it's publication here) has been with Slop Comics from the beginning, befriending Mr. Dreger during his period of illness when it was learned that both men were dating the same nurse!

SLOP founder & president Brian Dreger has announced via official press release that SLOP COMICS, INC has been sold to the well-known German conglomerate FUKEENZEIT.
"I'm shocked!"
...
Skeen, who claims to have had a hand in exactly fifty percent of all SLOP creations (including Tomato-Dude, The Black Nun, Lizard-Lad & Ballistic Missile-Boy, Mr. Fast and so many others), insists that the deal—structured solely by Dreger and without legal representation—is so strange that it may even suggest that "Dreg is suffering from an undiagnosed brain tumor."
...
However, the unusual structuring of the deal sees Dreger retaining exclusive rights to the URL www.slopcomics.com (as well as .org, .biz, .gov et al) and the right to keep the SLOP website up and running (though he is legally restricted from adding anything to the site or using any of the SLOP characters without the consent of THE FUKEENZEIT CORPORATION). In addition, Mr. Dreger retains all film & t.v. rights to the characters that exist prior to and at the moment of the contract's date of registration.
...
But reliable sources indicate that FUKEENZEIT is merely paying off all of SLOP's debts and buying Dreger a high-class hooker for two nights.
...
Fans of the mighty cult magazine were shocked by the news that SLOP founder, Brian Dreger, has forever closed the website's popular (but highly unprofitable) online store (once hosted by CafePress.Com).
"It was necessary," is all that Dreger will reveal per his girl-friday & SLOP's executive assistant, Mrs. Johnson.
...
Dreger just came in one day and said that the store had to be closed.
...
It was the dawn of SLOP COMICS and during the production process of Slop Comics #14, editor Loren Cain Jr. and Ilya & Alexander Salkind wrestled away control of the issue long enough to make critical changes to publisher Brian Dreger's ultimate vision!
...
Using recently uncovered photocopies of the original artwork, Dreger and a team of college interns have been working to recreate this most pivotal of all SLOP stories!
RESTORATION INCLUDES:
...
"I have no idea why anyone comes here," SLOP founder & president Brian Dreger insists. "I really don't like doing it myself." Still, Dreger admits that the jump in hits during the Spring may have something to do with the start of the Slop Comics Podcasts, the brainchild of SLOP managing editor & tech guru Pete Jones.
...
But, also, Mr. Dreger has a new, highly unusual series of podcasts in the works…it promises to be very ridonkulous stuff. Really weird.

Thanks to the posting of recent fan messages on this website-and a few emails directed to Mrs. Johnson-SLOP president & founder Brian Dreger finds himself accused of insulting The Microsoft Corporation and all of their loyal followers.
Specifically, Dreger's newly published novel, Bam2 Pendleton: The Human Weapon, is the main target of this criticism as certain passages seem to ridicule the mighty Redmond, Washington corporated giant.
NOTE: YOU CAN VIEW PORTIONS OF THE ALLEGEDLY OFFENSIVE PASSAGES HERE.
Never one to evade his critics (like the way he will sometimes evade personal hygiene or parking tickets), Dreg has prepared the following statement/apology to all those involved in this so-called besmirchment:
...
The year was 1986…and SLOP's founder/president Brian Dreger sent out a few unsolicited comic book scripts just to see how much rejection he could take.
...
Says Dreger: "They obviously didn't buy the thing because of ME!
...
The story, featuring the first appearance of The Rebel Moog-Men From Planet X, is a fan favorite because, as Dreger explains: "It makes no sense."
Indeed.
However, over the years many have wondered just WHY Dreg chose a Civil War story to introduce the Moog-Men (and the subsequent first hints of the weird backstory behind the Slop Universe).Dreger says that he was "beat for a story idea because I didn't want to use Hitler again since he was just in the TOMATO-DUDE story-and so, at the time, Gone With The Wind was on commercial t.v. for the first time in years…I had tuned in to see George Reeves-t.v.'s original Superman-who has the first male speaking role in the film."A few hours later, the first pages of the SLOP story had been sketched out.
