Slave Labor Graphics Tribute 1 by JonBeanHastings Slave Labor Graphics Tribute 1 by JonBeanHastings
2006 is my publisher, Slave Labor Graphics, 20th anniversary. SLG's Editor-in-Chief, Jennifer de Guzman, put together an anthology for Dan Vado called "Slave Labor Stories: Too Stupid to Quit, Too Mean to Die". This is my two-pager contribution.

Right now it's only available to contributors but I'll keep y'all updated as to when it may become available for public consumption.

By the way, Dan is, indeed, all these things and much more.

Tee hee! That's pretty cool! That's so cool you get published by slg! I submitted a comic to them once, but they rejected it and sent me a letter pretty much saying I suck at art. guess I shouldn't submit anything to them again, huh? well, anyways, what comic of yours is published by them?! I MUST KNOW!!! *head explodes*

I've been rejected a bunch myself but I practiced and got better and blah, blah, blah… you already now all the positive things I'd say, I bet, but don't give up! I didn't and now I'm a millionaire with a diamond-encrusted top hat!

>well, anyways, what comic of yours is published by them?! I MUST KNOW!!! *head explodes*

I've done:

"Smith Brown Jones: Alien Accountant"
"Mad Science" (although only two out of six issues came out.)
"Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monsters" (which is a kid's book)
"Spark Generators" (which is a benefit book for the Cartoon Art Museum that I edited)
and "Haunted Mansion" (which I did stories and art for)

Ah Dan... You are an inspiration to us all.
Met him twice. Very nice guy.
And there is no doubt it my mind that he is indeed a lounge singer, and a ruthless hockey player.

I've seen him both lounge sing (SLG puts on a musical Xmas party [with full band] every year) and ruthlessly hockey (you do NOT want to be check by him), so you are correct in having no doubt.

Well that sounds like fun. Pssh, I wanna go to an slg xmas party.

Haha I like how "ruthlessly hockey" is a verb. Yes, I ruthlessly hockey all the time. Ruthlessly.

SLG Xmas party = delighting + frightening + food. It's something you'd want to look away from but are compelled to watch… at your sanity's peril! (just like you'd expect!)

In a world where publishers often screw cartoonists over for money and creative control, the fact that so many people published by SLG love Dan Vado says a lot about him as a professional and as a man. Rock on.

Dan is, indeed, the man. (Anyone who can put up with cartoonists for 20 years and be only marginally gruff and grumpy is a true testiment to his sticktoitiveness and love of the medium.)
