Gotham City Dossiers: Slave Labor Graphics Publishing

Welcome to Gotham City Dossiers where I try and showcase a lesser known comics publisher. This isn't to say that these publishers need my help bringing attention to themselves, but I'd like to think that readers can get stuff here that they may not be able to get elsewhere. So enjoy, and be sure to check in every Thursday for Gotham City Dossiers. No you haven't been magically whisked away to days of yore unknowingly; that title does read Slave Labor Graphics Publishing. Slave Labor Graphics Publishing was founded in 1986 by Dan Vado and is a publisher committed to great diversity in comics and seeking works that are fun, smart and fresh. Artists Evan Dorkin, Andi Watson and Jhonen Vasquez have all seen their careers start in the halls of SLG Publishing, a publisher that prides itself on being the "first choice" for new artists looking to break into the industry. SLG Publishing titles include It's Science with Dr. Radium by Scott Saavedra and Skeleton Key by Andi Watson, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac by Jhonen Vasquez and quite possibly two of the most famous comics in Milk and Cheese and Dork by Evan Dorkin and Lenore by Roman Dirge. New comics on the horizon include Emo Boy by Steve Edmond and Rex Libris by James Turner. They even have webcomics:Look Out for Summer Trouble, Byron, Sparko, Serenity Rose and Java Town. SLG Publishing really has some cool stuff that I didn't even mention above, and a lot of its slightly off kilter. That's not to say its insane, but its not your traditional Marvel/DC fare. So if you're looking for comics that are slightly off the beaten path (the path most likely being beaten by the milk above with the bloody stick), then check out SLG Publishing.
