Platinum Studios and ezprints Launch Online Store

Addition to Webcomics Portal, DrunkDuck.com, Allows Creators to Monetize Their Creations

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2010) -  Platinum Studios, Inc. (OTCBB: PDOS), an entertainment company that controls an international library of more than 5,600 comic book characters which it adapts, produces and licenses for all forms of media, and ezprints, Inc., a provider of personalized product and related technology solutions, announced the launch today of a revolutionary merchandise creation and fulfillment program for Platinum's leading webcomics portal, http://www.DrunkDuck.com.

This store allows users of DrunkDuck.com to choose art from webcomics on the site, to design their own products, and order merchandise from a storefront integrated directly into the popular webcomics portal, making DrunkDuck.com a very unique destination in the online comic space. Artists and comic creators on the site, who opt in, will be able to earn money through a revenue-sharing initiative with Platinum from every merchandise sale related to their creation on the same website that they are currently publishing their work.

"We're very proud of the way the store has come together," says Platinum Studios Chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. "ezprints has been an amazing partner to work with and we believe this addition to DrunkDuck.com will elevate it even further as the web's preeminent webcomics hosting site." 

According to PMA Marketing Research, custom products and services, like those offered through this new program on DrunkDuck.com, represent the fastest growing category in the $89.6 billion photo imaging industry. In fact, at a time when consumer spending remains low and economic forecasts remain bleak, ezprints recently reported that units shipped during its peak week in December were up 109 percent.

"We're very excited about the way that Platinum has used the technology ezprints has," said Wes Herman, CEO of ezprints, Inc. "The store is integrated so seamlessly into the existing Drunkduck.com site, we believe users will find it a tremendous asset."

The integration of the site was overseen by Lawrence Leach, Head of Technology at Pure Engineering. Fans can find the store at http://www.drunkduck.com or go directly to the store at http://store.drunkduck.com.
