ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) - Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTC: REDG), an innovative Intellectual Property company specializing in high quality characters and content for use in a variety of media and entertainment, is thrilled to announce that veteran comic book writer and editor Brian Augustyn is scripting the Company's new AMPED monthly series debuting this November.
In Red Giant's AMPED, what began as a government-sponsored program to give mobility to young patients resulted in six teen minds trapped in android bodies that now everyone is intent on acquiring. Now it's up to them to save themselves while trying to save the world.
"AMPED is a great concept, it's the ultimate wish fulfillment fantasy," said Augustyn. "Who doesn't dream of instantly trading our ordinary bodies for super-heroic ones? In the case of our six, differently-abled teens, the transformation represents long dreamed of freedom and brand new lives. Like many gifts, becoming amped has hidden strings attached, and startling secrets yet to be discovered."
Augustyn, who got his start in the industry editing the hit independent comic book TROLLORDS, went on to work for NOW Comics overseeing SPEED RACER, and DC Comics, where he edited such titles as JUSTICE LEAGUE and THE FLASH.
In 1989, Augustyn inadvertently co-created DC's popular "Elseworlds" line of alternate universe comics when he wrote the graphic novel BATMAN: GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT, illustrated by future HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola and P. Craig Russell (SANDMAN).
In 1992, while editing THE FLASH he hired writer Mark Waid to script, leading to an acclaimed 8-year run and eventual comics superstardom for Waid (KINGDOM COME). After leaving as editor in 1996, Augustyn returned for two long stretches to co-write THE FLASH with Waid.
"I'm having a blast writing AMPED, especially for Red Giant's GIANT-SIZE free comics line," said Augustyn. "Fortunately, the gift of free comics comes with absolutely no strings attached -- just enjoy!"
