If so, you have to check out long-running indie comic book publisher SLG.
With an eye for the unique, a dedication to diversity and no fear of the dark side, Dan Vado founded Slave Labor Graphics (SLG) Publishing in 1986. Twenty-five years later, the indie is still discovering and fostering new talent, and pushing the boundaries of storytelling and illustration.
SLG was the first publisher of notable comic book artists such as Andi Watson (Skeleton Key) and Johnen Vasquez (Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee). Vasquez’s titles remain SLG’s best-sellers as the creator has continued his career in comics and television.
Other successful books include Egg Story and Eating Steve by J. Marc Schmidt, both remarkable for very simple artwork supporting odd, unexpected and meaningful stories.
Punk Rock and Trailer Parks by Derf is the only graphic novel sold at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A favorite of many different types of readers is the Rex Libris series from James Turner, chronicling the otherworldly adventures of the head librarian at Middelton Public Library.
Vado explained, “Creators come to us because we are known for taking chances on new, unproven talent and for allowing them to find their voice. Readers really respond to this and embrace the opportunity to not only read entertaining stories told with excellent artwork but to encounter new talent.”
