Asylum Press and Visionborne have joined forces to produce a slate of animated comics based on popular Asylum Press titles for the Apple iPad and other mobile devices. After the successful launch of fan-favorite Fearless Dawn #1, Zombie Terrors is the next in the lineup to be released exclusively through the Visionborne app that uses Airmid technology, a process that converts static 2D art into a vibrant 3D animated format that can be read and “experienced” using a reader app on iOS and Android.
Zombie Terrors #1 will be free on the iPad with subsequent issues available at .99.
All Airmid enhanced productions retain their original artistic essence in a way that’s totally unobtrusive to the author’s unique form of expression. Unlike other industry approaches, it does not force an artist to learn to use a complex new software suite to create animated content.
Zombie Terrors #1 is available the iTunes store now. It features a gory collection of zombie tales created by an international cast of artistic talent. Frank Forte delivers Beheaded, a tale of a crazed hillbilly who takes trophies off of his zombie victims. In Feast, a gourmet chef is taken hostage by a greedy mob boss. In Hate, a recently turned zombie that still has some semblance of his humanity must confront what he’s become. And finally, to add a little more spice to this gruesome brew, we’re throwing in some awesome pin-ups by horror master David Hartman.
â€śWeâ€™re very excited about the possibility of reaching so many new readers all over the world with these animated comic books,â€ť says Asylum Press President Frank Forte. â€śTablet computer ownership is exploding and we want to provide dynamic, top-quality content for comic book lovers. Visionborneâ€™s amazing technology lets our readers experience comics in a cool new way that wasnâ€™t possible before.â€ť
â€śAsylum Press gives us a great opportunity to clearly showcase our know-how and to create a unique experience in the world of comics,â€ť Francesco Scrufari, President of Visionborne, commented.
