Ape Entertainment Launches Young Reader Imprint
Ape Entertainment today announced the launch of its new imprint, "KiZoic", which will feature content aimed primarily at younger readers.
KiZoic titles will be released as either stand-alone 48-page one-shots or as mini-series in the standard 32-page comic book format and will be available to Direct Market and comic book specialty shops. All mini-series will be collected into digest (6 x 9) trade paperbacks and made available to both the Direct Market and the mass market, via Diamond Book Distributors, to Borders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com and other outlets.
The first official title to be released under the new imprint will be Mecha-Nation, a 3-issue mini-series from Spectacular Spider-Man producers Greg Weisman (Gargoyles) and Vic Cook (Hellboy: Blood and Iron), and Greg Guler (Phineas and Ferb) with interior artwork by talented newcomer Antonio Campo and covers by Greg Guler and Sean "Cheeks" Galloway.
The New Kid. The Geek. The Rocker. The Cheerleader. The Goth. An unlikely group of friends under normal circumstances, right? But in Mecha-Nation, Glass Lake High School's newest transfer student, Kevin Cho, discovers that he has a lot more in common with these individuals than just econ class! These kids are more than just homo-sapiens, they're Mecha-Sapiens! Empowered with the ability to transform into robotic warriors, they are the first of a brand new Mecha-Nation!
"We are very excited to launch our new young reader imprint with a title like Mecha-Nation, and with such talented creators as Vic, Greg and Greg. The KiZoic imprint was designed to be a home for new fresh content with well-written stories that feature amazing art all designed to spark the imagination of young readers everywhere." said Co-Publisher Brent E. Erwin.
