Slave Labor Graphics is an independent comic book publisher which publishes the Gargoyles comic book.


Slave Labor Graphics was founded by Dan Vado in 1986. Vado remains the president of SLG to this day. The first comic published by SLG was Shadow Star #3, a comic previously published by some of Vado's friends. Most of the early Slave Labor titles were created by friends of Vado. Some of the publisher's best known titles are Even Dorkin's Milk and Cheese and Dork!, Jhonen Vasquez's Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and it's spin-offs, and Roman Dirge's Lenore. Through these and other titles, SLG gained a reputation for producing quirky, underground comics for the adolescent and adult comics. SLG later broadened their library with all-ages titles like Little Gloomy.

In 2005, SLG entered into a deal with The Walt Disney Company. Slave Labor acquired the rights to produce comics based on four Disney properties: Haunted Mansion - an anthology of short stories about the 999 happy haunts who inhabit the popular theme park rides, Wonderland - which took elements from Disney's Alice in Wonderland and the original Lewis Carroll stories and told an entirely new tale, TRON - The Ghost in the Machine - a follow-up to both the cult classic film and the video game sequel, and Gargoyles - which continued the story of the 1990s TV series. In addition, kid friendly SLG titles began appearing in Disney Adventures.
