This year, Slave Labor Graphics celebrates twenty-five years in operation. This fact likely flew under the radar as Dan Vado, SLG’s owner and publisher, hasn’t made of the milestone. While it continues to be a small publisher, SLG has managed to remain both relevant and interesting over it’s quarter century. Its influence and legacy can seen in the creators that it’s published over the years, which — to name just a few — includes such notables as Jhonen Vasquez, Roman Dirge, Ed Brubaker, Andi Watson, Evan Dorkin, Faith Erin Hicks, Phil Hester, Ariel Schrag, Camilla d’Errico, Ross Campbell, Jim Rugg, Sean McKeever, Ethan Nicolle, Landry Walker and Eric Jones.
SLG recently announced that moving forward, the publisher’s comics will be released digitally first, abandoning the comics singles format. In speaking with CBR News, Vado makes it clear that collections will remain in print and that the move is digital first, not digital only. We spoke with him about what this means for readers, the details on how it will work and what readers can look forward to in the coming months.
