About this project

Originally conceived as a 3 issue mini-series, SLAM then evolved into a webcomic, which you can check out and read the first two full issues here: http://slamcomic.squarespace.com/home/...

The SLAM Webcomic, was an attempt to build reader/consumer awareness and a reader fanbase for when it came time to put the webcomic, into the printed format. So now that we're approaching the end of the SLAM Webcomic with issue#3, we the creative team want to collect SLAM into a 96 page graphic novel, so others can read it and enjoy the story in the printed format, as well.

The SLAM graphic novel will consist of 75 pages of story content, behind the scenes content, character bios, and a pin up gallery featuring some well known comic book artists and a group of up and coming comic book artists from around the world. (Once I have the pin ups come in from these individuals, I will start updating the list with the names of the artists involved)

At this point, the artwork for SLAM is 100% complete, and the digital coloring is about 90%, so we're very close to having it completely finished. Since all the artwork is done, there is a great opportunity for some special rewards, as you can see to your right.

So the plan is, once the coloring is done and some touch ups are made to the final pages, it's off to the printers, so we can get copies into the hands of the gracious backers and sell at upcoming conventions; meanwhile, the printer we are going through actually has their own distribution network set up, which means that the SLAM graphic novel can be continually ordered on demand by retailers.

Also, a portion of the funding, will help pay for tables at conventions like the New York Comicon, so we can continue to sell/promote the graphic novel to retailers and readers, to help further create awareness of the product.

Thanks for taking the time out to read about the SLAM, graphic novel project, and hopefully you can see our love and passion for the art of comic books and storytelling.
