Black Eye Productions (also called Black Eye Books) was a short-lived but influential Canadian comic book publishing company founded by Michel Vrana. Under the auspices of Vrana, Black Eye was known as a publisher of artfully designed alternative comics and graphic novels, most of whose cartoonists have gone on to successful careers with fellow Canadian publisher Drawn and Quarterly. Vrana still acts as Drawn and Quarterly's exclusive outside design consultant.[1]

Black Eye acted as a comic book publisher from 1992 to 1998, when Vrana turned the business into a design company.[2]
