ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - May 27, 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 proud to announce the creative team for TESLA, a larger-than-life comic series inspired by legendary inventor Nikola Tesla that will run in the pages of GIANT-SIZE ACTION.
TESLA will be written and produced by Terry Keefe and illustrated by artist Bong Dazo. Dazo is well-known for impressive work on numerous Marvel Comics titles including DEADPOOL, THUNDERBOLTS, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE, as well as Dark Horse's STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC.
Keefe's credits include the Red Giant comic series SUPERNOVAS, which is now being developed as an animated feature film. Keefe has extensive experience in the film industry, starting out as an assistant and working up to the Director of Development position at Orion Pictures. He co-wrote and directed 1999's SLAVES OF HOLLYWOOD (a movie about working as an assistant in the film business) in addition to numerous short films. Keefe's latest film as a producer, a psychological thriller called THE RED ROBIN starring Judd Hirsch (INDEPENDENCE DAY), is currently in post-production for release this December.
In TESLA, Nikola Tesla uses his greatest inventions to battle against a shadowy organization of the planet's most brilliant minds bent on world domination. With the help of his fun-loving sidekick Mark Twain and genius assistant Mathilda, Tesla becomes a steampunk science hero.
"We are incredibly excited about our new TESLA series as it takes one of the most underappreciated figures from history whose accomplishments increasingly are coming to light, and casts his epic story in a fantastic way through the rich medium of our GIANT-SIZE comic line," stated Red Giant Entertainment COO, David Campiti. "With the talents of Mr. Keefe and Mr. Dazo bringing this story to Red Giant's waiting readers, TESLA will be an innovation worthy of its namesake."
