Emmy-Award Nominee Joins Red Giant Entertainment

Celebrated Actress and Veteran Writer Pens High-Concept Series for Free Comic Line

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) - Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTCQB: REDG), an innovative Intellectual Property company specializing in high quality characters and content for use in a variety of media and entertainment, is happy to announce that veteran comic book writer and actress, Elaine Lee, has signed on to script superhero/spy thriller Duel Identity for the company's Giant-Size Fantasy series.

Duel Identity follows the thrilling adventures of world-famous superheroine Andromeda, who by night leads a secret life as the lethal superspy, Artemis. Created by Red Giant CEO Benny Powell, the high-concept property will appear as a lead feature in Giant-Size Fantasy, one of the monthly titles comprising Red Giant's revolutionary advertising-supported free comic book initiative. 

Lee, who also received an Emmy Award nomination for her work as an actress on NBC-TV drama The Doctors, is a multi-talented creator with more than 30 years of experience in the comic book industry. Her sci-fi saga Starstruck began life in 1982 as an off-Broadway stage play written by and starring Lee. Teaming with noted illustrator Michael Kaluta (The Shadow), the two spun Starstruck into a long-running series of comic stories and graphic novels published by Marvel Comics' Epic imprint, Heavy Metal magazine, Dark Horse, and IDW.

While she may now be best known as the creator of DC Comics' horror series Vamps, Lee has also helped to guide the comic book adventures of George Lucas' Indiana Jones for Dark Horse, written Prince Valiant and Clive Barker's Saint Sinner for Marvel, and much more. Outside of comics, Lee has scripted animation projects for companies such as Hallmark Entertainment, written video games and directed motion capture, and brought comics to auditory life as a writer/producer for AudioComics, a company that produces full-cast "audio movies" based on comics and genre fiction.

"Ms. Lee brings an exceptional bounty of talent to the Red Giant universe," said Benny Powell, CEO, Red Giant Entertainment. "Her perspective is so unique that we know the work she'll produce for Giant-Size will be a perfect fit. She was my first and only choice to handle this series, and we couldn't be happier."

"When Benny approached me to write this series, I instantly fell in love with the concept. Both as a person and as an actress, I connect with the character," said Lee. "Women take on many roles in the course of their lives -- mother, worker, boss, lover, wife -- and juggling those different personas can make you crazy. You feel schizophrenic."

"Back when I was working as an actress, I noticed that the line between my own personality and that of a character I was playing would sometimes blur. That's what happens to our character, Artemis, when she tries to be one person during the day and another at night."
