ORLANDO, Fla., June 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTC: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 due to demand stemming from the overwhelming popularity of GIANT-SIZE #1 as a digital download, Red Giant is now offering all four GIANT-SIZE #0 issues in the same enhanced electronic format.
GIANT-SIZE ACTION #0, GIANT-SIZE ADVENTURE #0, GIANT-SIZE FANTASY #0, and GIANT-SIZE THRILLS #0 can now be purchased for $0.99 each at Red Giant Entertainment’s online store located at https://redgiant.myshopify.com. Like the recently-released GIANT-SIZE #1, in addition to all the standard content from the print edition, the digital download also includes interactive advertisements that take the reader directly to select advertisers’ content with one convenient click.
The Company's four GIANT-SIZE #0 issue titles, published last year as part of the comic industry’s annual Free Comic Book Day event, disappeared from most comics shops worldwide in the first few hours, including the large stockpiles of its titles at the Company's various artist signing locations. Despite a healthy circulation of nearly 400,000, the issues quickly became sought-after collector’s items, with reports of mint condition bundles selling for as much as $20 on eBay in the days following their publication.
“Response has been overwhelmingly positive to last Friday’s surprise release of GIANT-SIZE #1 as a digital download priced at $1.99,” said Benny Powell, CEO of Red Giant Entertainment. “The comic, its content and even its interactive advertisements have all been met with raves. Fans have long been asking for the #0 Issues as well. So with that in mind, it seemed natural to give everyone the opportunity to own these books in the same fantastic format!”
Print copies of GIANT-SIZE #1 will be given out in a dedicated section of Red Giant Entertainment / Keenspot island booth #2635 (located directly between Marvel and Image Comics) at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Wednesday through Sunday, July 8 - 12, at the San Diego Convention Center. Giant-Size #1 features famous internet personality, Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach. With more than 8 million subscribers and 2.5 billion video views on his gaming comedy channel, Red Giant Entertainment board member “Markiplier” ranks among YouTube’s biggest superstars. An illustrated version of the internet icon stars on GIANT-SIZE #1’s cover as well as in original vignettes throughout the comic, entertainingly introducing each GIANT-SIZE feature as only the famous funnyman can. Fischbach and other GIANT-SIZE #1 creators will be available at the Company’s booth throughout the con to sign copies and meet with fans.
"Last year we gave away the #0 issues, and this year we are giving away a #1 that leads into the ongoing Giant-Size Line later this year," stated David Campiti, Red Giant COO. "Red Giant's bold mix of comics in the ACTION, ADVENTURE, FANTASY, and THRILLS genres, and each genre offering two very different types of stories, is a very real way to entice new readers -- men, women and children alike -- into reading comics.”
