ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2013) - Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTCQB: REDG) has announced that the first issue of its teen superhero comic book SUPERNOVAS will be offered as a free "Digital First" comic through partner Keenspot relationship with comiXology -- the revolutionary digial comics platform available across the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 and the Web.
SUPERNOVAS, which Red Giant earlier this month announced is being developed into a feature-length animated film, is a series that follows four ordinary teens from a small town in upstate New York. While observing a gamma ray burst, they and the town's nearby Supermax prison are irradiated with massive energy that mutates them and grants each of them extraordinary powers. Taking up the mantle of superheroes, they must face off against the powerful inmates who now wreak havoc on the world at large.
"We're thrilled to team with our digital distributor Keenspot to offer this landmark first issue for free on comiXology," said Red Giant CEO Benny Powell. "It is enlightening to realize just how powerful a fan base, comic book readers, can be. The fact that comiXology sales on the iPad platform continue to outperform even game apps with household names like ANGRY BIRDS and TEMPLE RUN is obvious proof of that."
In addition to SUPERNOVAS #1, Red Giant is also offering a 64-page giant-size special issue of Red Giant's top-selling hit WAYWARD SONS: LEGENDS for free on comiXology. The TYTANS SPECIAL is an illustrated guide to the "bad guys" of the WAYWARD SONS universe, the Tytans. The Tytans' arch nemeses, the Ulympeans, received their own 91-page giant-size handbook earlier this year.
