Too Stupid to Quit

20th Anniversary
Happy All Saints' Day, everyone. Last night was SLG's Halloween party, and we had a bunch of fun. Here's all of us, saying Happy Halloween to you:

Last night was special because we all love Halloween, but also because I got to present SLG Prez Dan Vado with an Ultra Mega Secret Project that I've been working on with a bunch of SLG artists and writers -- Slave Labor Stories: Too Stupid to Quit, Too Mean to Die, a 64-page color anthology commemorating SLG's 20th Anniversary.

I've been planning since just after Comic-Con, and Dan had not a clue, which has taught me how much I can get away with without him noticing and has taught Dan to be extra-vigilant because I'm sneaky. The cover you see to the left is by Scott Saavedra and colored by Eleanor Lawson; a variant cover by Evan Dorkin will be on the copies available for purchase at Lulu.com soon. Here's a list of contributors:

Aaron A.
Black Olive
Ian Carney and Woodrow Phoenix
Christopher
Jennifer de Guzman and Brian Belew
Glenn Dakin and Phil Elliott
Steve Emond
Jennifer Feinberg and Todd Meister
John Gebbia
Gilgrim
Jon "Bean" Hastings
Neil Kleid

Tommy Kovac
Matt Mocarski
Mike Moss
Joe Nakamura and Bryan Dobrow
Chris Reilly, Steve Ahlquist and Kevin Atkinson
Andy Ristaino

Big thanks to all these creators!

Pictures of my little presentation to Dan after the cut:
I gave a little speech before presenting the book. Note how uncomfortable Dan looks. He gave me a look of pure "What the fuck is going on?" when I called for everyone's attention.

The presentation of the book. Yes, that's a print-out, not an actual book. There was a shipping mix-up and I was a lot more pissed off about it than I look in this photo. We have the actual books today, though.

Dan takes a look, Scott looks on.
 
 Scott gives Dan a pat on the back, while a ninja looks on.

Thank you, Vincent! I was about to say, "Oh! The art in your icon looks like Vincent Batignole's art. And then I saw your user name." Ha.
