Slab-O-Concrete was a British mail order distributor and publisher set up by Peter Pavement in the early 1990s. Initially selling British small press comics and zines, Pavement also imported publications from the United States, Australia and Europe.

By the late 1990s Slab had developed into a publisher, repackaging small press comics and zines for the bookshop market and originating new works. Of note was Pavement's general rejection of the traditional comic book industry, making connections with underground publishers, zinesters, Independent record labels and other subcultural scenes.

Slab was laid low by cashflow issues in 2001.
