 “This is the most ambitious project that I’ve taken on from Fan-Atic Press and I think it shows in the quality of the book. I’d always dreamed of putting out Slam Bang in a format that could really show it off and finally I think I’ve done that.”--proclaims editor and publisher Allen Freeman.

 “Its exciting seeing the enthusiastic favorable reaction I’m getting at the conventions! Everyone loves it and wants to be in the second issue!” ----explains Fan-Atic Press CEO Allen Freeman

Slam Bang was created by artist/designer Allen Freeman in 1985 to help artists show off their comic book work. From 1985 till 1990 he put out 33 issues of the digest small press comic winning many awards in the fan press and newsletters of that period. After working in commercial art and the gaming industry as well as for other comic companies, Allen brought back Fan-Atic Press and Slam Bang in 2003 and has produced 7 more issues of the digest, many with color covers.

Now in 2006 Allen has taken his small press company and opened it up to a broader audience with full color comics, and now this square bound graphic novel format for Slam Bang.

Recently on May 13th, 2006, Fan-Atic Press won a nominee award in the Day Prize at the SPACE CON in Columbus, OH. (Small Press and Alternative Comic Expo.) It was in Slam Bang #7 vol II from 2005, and the story nominated was “Justin’s Last Chance” by Anton Bogaty.
