About Slave Labor Graphics (SLG) Publishing
Slave Labor Graphics (SLG) Publishing was founded by Dan Vado in 1986 and over its 20-year history has remained true to its roots as a publisher of great diversity. The first publisher of such notable comic book artists as Andi Watson and Jhonen Vasquez, SLG has been known to be on the forefront of discovering and fostering new talent in the comics industry. We seek out and publish comics that are fun, smart, and fresh and that offer a different perspective from what you’ll find anywhere else. SLG is often the “first choice” of new artists looking to break into the industry and because of this, SLG books offer readers the opportunity to not only read entertaining stories told with excellent artwork but to encounter new voices and talents.
With classic titles like It’s Science with Dr. Radium by Scott Saavedra, Skeleton Key by Andi Watson and innovative new comics like Emo Boy by Steve Emond and Rex Libris by James Turner, SLG has proven its dedication to showcasing work that does not conform to easily defined types, genres or expectations.
