ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 5, 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 that it will release several original projects from worldwide superstar comics artist Mike Deodato, Jr., best known for his many years of work at Marvel Comics.
The Cartoon Art of Mike Deodato, Jr., coming this Christmas season to comics shops and bookstores in both trade paperback and hardcover, features a collection of humorous single drawings and comic vignettes. Although the artist is revered for his work on Marvel's Avengers, Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, and other titles, "I'm also a cartoonist," Deodato explains. "I love creating cartoons in a style a little bit reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbes, but with my own flavor to it, all about my work, my wife, and my family. This book was a real joy to create."
The spring will see the release of Mike Deodato's Jade Warriors, a 192-page full-color trade paperback and hardcover graphic novel collecting the Asian assassin cult storyline he created for Image Comics in the late '90s but never released in its entirety... until now.
"Jade Warriors exploded into the eyes of a whole new audience on Keenspot.com over the past year and a half," explains Chris Crosby, Chief Technology Officer. "The fantastic fanbase for Deodato's work made this collection a no-brainer." It is written by Red Giant's COO David Campiti and Michael Buckley.
Summertime will see the release of Mike Deodato's Comics & Stories, a 220+ page trade and hardcover collection of all of Deodato's work written and drawn for his native Brazilian market before he became a superstar in the USA. These rare stories will appear under the Red Giant label in full color for the first time.
"My association with Mike Deodato, Jr. stretches back to late 1991, when I first published him in the U.S. comics market," says David Campiti, editor of all three books, which are packaged by Glass House Graphics. "Although his Marvel exclusive precludes any new comics work for Red Giant, we're proud to bring these amazing book collections of his creator-owned work to his many, many fans for the first time."
