Johnny the Homicidal Maniac #1 surpasses 100,000 copies sold - 10/01/2003
The comic book series Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, created by Jhonen Vasquez and published by Slave Labor Graphics, reached a milestone during the first week of 2003, when its first issue exceeded 100,000 copies sold. The figure includes sales to comic book specialty shops, mass market sales to outlets such as Hot Topic, convention sales and single-copy internet sales.

"This is a very significant achievement for us," Slave Labor President and Publisher Dan Vado said. "Trying to keep as much of our material as possible in print and available is central to our business plan. Considering that the first printing of Johnny #1 sold just a little over 3,000 copies, reaching 100,000 in sales gives us all a sense of accomplishment, even if it took us six years to reach this point."

Milton Griep, president of ICv2.com, a website devoted to tracking trends and sales in the comic book industry put the sales of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac #1 in perspective. "The sales on Johnny the Homicidal Maniac #1 make it a better seller than most of the comics published by any U.S. publisher." (Read More)

Ultimate Spider-Man #36 Preview - 27/12/2002
The long-awaited debut of VENOM in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN is proving as popular as it is mysterious.

Little Scrowlie joins SLG - 26/12/2002
SLG publisher Bob Simpkins announced this week that the self-published series Little Scrowlie would be joining Slave Labor Graphics' line of titles, starting in March 2003.

Little Scrowlie came to life in 1999, when Jennifer Feinberg and Todd Meister began publishing these whimsical and satirical tales of suburban Goth culture through their own label, Chi Comics. Through convention appearances, internet sales, and eventually limited comic-book store distribution through Cold Cut and Last Gasp, the series developed a cult following, but only saw about one issue published per year. Freed from the business obligations of self-publishing and distributing, Jen and Todd expect their productivity to increase considerably in the months to come. (Read More)
