Share:

Four-Issue Series of "Wildfire" comic series to be released as a Trade Paperback with Volume 2 to be released 2015

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 16, 2014 / WOWIO, Inc. (OTCBB: WWIO), a digital media technology company with a patented process for inserting ads into eBooks, a mobile eBook distribution platform, and a proprietary mobile ad network, is pleased to announce that the company and its publishing partner, Top Cow Productions, will be releasing the Volume 1 trade paperback of the four-issue series of "Wildfire," the landmark series that tackled the topical issue of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). Following the recently announced publishing deal with rock historian Marc Platt, WOWIO's new arrangement with Top Cow Productions extends the project for a second four-issue series to be released both in print and digital formats in 2015. 

"Wildfire Volume 1" will be available in time for this year's holiday season. The series was written by Top Cow's President Matt Hawkins, who has also adapted the series as a feature film project. 

"The reviews for the first series of "Wildfire" have been so positive and the sales have been really impressive for an independent release," said Brian Altounian, WOWIO's CEO. "Matt has a way of delving deeply into topical and controversial storylines and presenting both sides with brilliance and wit, and the fans seem to have really embraced his story, combined with the beauty that artist Linda Sejic has painted to bring "Wildfire" to life. We are quite excited as WOWIO is now accumulating deals with recognizable names. Our production team has been quite busy and as we now start to see the positive effects of these efforts, our shareholders will be happy as we expect to see an ROI soon." The company developed additional media content around the comic series for distribution across its digital media outlets such as its 4-part interview with Matt Hawkins on its Pop Galaxy channel. WOWIO has released the series on its proprietary eBook distribution platform at wowioapp.com and on Comixology and other digital platforms as well. "Wildfire" represents the first WOWIO-owned property to be released on the company's recently announced mobile app available through Google Play.

"We got such great feedback on this project," says Wildfire creator/writer and Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. "In my own exploration of the discussion about GMOs, I was amazed by the change in my own position on the topic and I am looking forward to further development with the second series and the feature film adaptation."

In addition to its library of creative content, WOWIO holds a proprietary patent that allows for the insertion of advertising into eBooks, providing the digital publishing distribution channel as a viable alternative to that of other content distribution outlets.
