ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 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 pleased to announce its expansion into international markets, beginning with the European continent. Red Giant will team up with the International Licensing department of European comic art agency Boom Art Department in order to secure Red Giant's properties for translations, reprinting, as well as Intellectual Property merchandise deals based on Red Giant's hundreds of characters.
"Red Giant's leadership firmly believes in our stable of characters and we consider Europe to be our next stepping stone," stated Benny Powell, CEO, Red Giant Entertainment Inc. "We continue to receive regular inquiry from potential partners in the Middle East, Far East, South America and Europe. At this time, we have decided to take the next step in our expansion by working with an established and respected European-based agency such as Boom Art Department represents."
"I am ready to take the exciting and fresh properties Red Giant has in its portfolio to European fans of great stories and exciting art," said Richard Boom, CEO of Boom Art Department. "Partnering with Red Giant makes for an even broader appeal we can bring to Europe!"
"We've always known that roughly half of the audience for our web-comics comes from outside North America," added Chris Crosby, CTO, Red Giant Entertainment, Inc. "While the global readership for our web-comics has numbered in the millions, the shipping costs for these consumers makes ordering our physical merchandise too expensive for many to justify. Partnering with Boom Art Department makes great sense, allowing us to bring Red Giant products to our international readers and new ones in an easier and more cost-effective manner for all involved -- all while generating more revenue for us in the process."
