"Slug & Lettuce is/was a punk rock fanzine supporting the DIY (do-it-yourself) ethics of the punk scene and community. It existed in print format from 1987 untill 2007. It started out in State College PA, represeted [sic] some of the Pittsburgh scene in the late 80s, a short stint in Boston in 1989, and then really settled into "it's own" with the newsprint tabloid format in NYC, where the emphasis was on networking for international DIY punk contact and communication. Plus band photography and punk art! Slug & Lettuce had a print run of 10,000, was published quarterly and distributed worldwide for free. Slug & Lettuce has been based out of Richmond VA since 1997. Issue #90 was the 20 year anniversary issue. It was an all photo issue representing the lifespan of the zine. That was the last issue in print format."--Website.

Edited by Christine Boarts Larson.
