RED GIANT'S 'SUPERNOVAS' EXPLODES ONTO COMIXOLOGY
Third Highest-Grossing iPad App of 2012 Offers Millions Free Download of First Issue
ORLANDO, FL -March 27, 2013- Red Giant Entertainment Inc (OTCQB: REDG) has announced that the first issue of its teen superhero comic book SUPERNOVAS will today be offered as a "Digital First" free download on comiXology's Comics app, the #3 top-grossing iPad app of last year. It will be available on all versions of comiXology's main app for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle, Windows 8, and at comixology.com.
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 comiXology and our digital distributor Keenspot to offer this landmark first issue for free in their patented `Guided View' format," said Red Giant CEO, Benny Powell. "It is enlightening to realize just how powerful a fan base comic fans 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."
Free first issues have proven to be an effective tool for publishers. Earlier this month, when comiXology offered free downloads of seven hundred Marvel Comics first issues for a limited time, the response was so overwhelming that the promotion had to be called off early. Some of the world's most powerful servers weren't able to keep up with the demand from eager fans trying to download the free issues.
In addition to SUPERNOVAS #1, comiXology is today also offering a 64-page giant-size special issue of Red Giant's top-selling hit WAYWARD SONS: LEGENDS for free. 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.
Red Giant Entertainment titles can be found under the Keenspot label in the Publishers section of the comiXology's Comics app or online at http://www.comixology.com/keenspot/comics-publisher/78-0
