Slave Labor Graphics Tribute 2 by JonBeanHastings Slave Labor Graphics Tribute 2 by JonBeanHastings
2006 marks 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.

Bonus points if you can name all 32 SLG characters (excluding Dan). Hint: one of them is the dot above the chacter jumping over the Polaroid.

That's really awesome. I only recognize Sera, Johnny, and Lenore though.

Than you should read more SLG comics! (Although, to be fair, I did include a lot of obscure characters).

Kudos to you!

i can't believe you called Nny a skinny little phsyco
(although he kinda is one...you didn't hear that from me...)
but it is a very good drawing of him(!!!)
also, what's up with the kiwi birds???

Thanks! As for the kiwi, I own Kiwi Studios ("We're small and flightless, but funny to look at!"), as you can see here: [link] (be sure to check out the kiwi sketch book, with kiwis by many artists, including Jhonen and Roman)

Don't feel too bad, that's twenty years of characters depicted there (although you should defiantly read more of MY comics from SLG, so that my ego may be fed. FEED MY EGO!!!)

Thanks, although she's simply designed, Serenity Rose is deceptively hard to draw (which is one reason I love that book).

Aw geez... I can only name one. >< Guess who. :D
Well I have an excuse though! I'm not much of a comic reader... more of a manga person ma-seff... JtHM is actually the first comic I've ever seriously been a fan of. These are all comics characters right? Or are they something else too? *is clueless :nirvana:*

Anyway, even though I don't know ..um.. alot of the characters, I love teh picture!! :clap:

You're correct! The answer is "a lot of characters." ;)

They are, indeed, all comics characters, except for Dan, who might as well be.

I can name 5 [sniff, im sad] but that black monster with the purple horns looks familiar. I think I saw it eat Mr.Gosh while reading Lenore.

Ooo, close... he's from "Gloomcookie." Only one character from each comic (except for two pairs I couldn't split up.)

Thanks, your Samurai Penguin story was also awesome.

>I think I can only name 25 of them.

Thereís a few obscure ones in there, thatís for sure (and I could have added a good couple of dozen more, I just ran out of room.)

I drew 'em all, because I'm insane.

The guys in the picture are myself and Dan Vado. Me, as my usual goofball self and Dan putting up with said goofball.

They're different creator's characters from the fine SLG line of comic books. I created the alien guy holding the polaroid and the smiley black ball next to him, or Smith Brown Jones (Aline Accountant) and Pops, as they're known in my comic.
