SDCC ’13 News: Angel Phoenix Media Acquires Trailblazing Digital Comic, The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo
Back in February we interviewed the guys behind the awesomely titled The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo – Pat McNamara and David G Williams – well today we’re pleased to announce that Angel Phoenix Media have acquired the Spacelord and set to bring him a whole new part of the galaxy!
Angel Phoenix Media is embracing the new comic evolution to produce a new wave of groundbreaking digital comics, and are exited to announce our acquisition of the critically acclaimed digital comic, The Legend of Spacelord Mofo, by Pat McNamara (Angelwitch, Lost in Space) and David G. Williams (Wolverine, Phantom, In Flesh and Spirit). Their experience developing the pioneering Digital Cinegraphic Novelstorytelling format, and the unique creative vision they bring to Angel Phoenix Media, keeps story and characterat the center of the creative process, and will lay the developmental foundation for the first three original Angel Phoenix Media titles (TBA), to be published alongside the continuing adventures of The Legend of Spacelord Mofo. Angel Phoenix Media‘s line of original digital comics will debut early next year.
According to their press release, Angel Phoenix Media makes bold, original Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror and Supernatural projects for Film, Television, Print, Web TV and the emerging Digital Comic market, that will fire the imagination of fans the world over and leave them demanding “MORE!” Angel Phoenix Media is the brainchild of Gary Turner, the twenty-five year veteran and award-winning international music publisher, and brings together an international team of super-talented and passionate artists, writers and directors, from the worlds of Film, Television, Games, Books and Comics, whose amazing works include such celebrated titles as “300: The Rise of an Empire”, “Snow White & The Huntsman”, “Hugo”, “Flags of Our Fathers”, “2012”, “The Grudge”, “Blake’s 7” and on Marvel Comics “Wolverine” and “Phantom”, and DC Comics “Catwoman”, “Batman”, “Teen Titans” and “Superman”, and Innovations “Lost in Space”, as well as numerous cutting edge music videos and video games.
For those new to the title, The Legend of Spacelord Mofo was launched online in January 2012, from the awesomely disturbed minds of Pat McNamara (Angelwitch Series) & David G. Williams (Wolverine: Doombringer, Catwoman, In Flesh & Spirit), The Legend of Spacelord Mofo is an ass-kickingly kick-ass post-apocalyptic, space-western, love story… with guns, presented in the trailblazing Digital Cinegraphic Novel format (like Marvel’s Infinite Nova & Thrillbent’s Insufferable). The story follows Bran Mak Foo and Honey Pott, a just-married couple scrounging a living on the Edge of Endspace after a galactic apocalypse… or three. The Edge is a place where heroes are few, villainy’s the law, and the rest are just trying to survive… At its heart, The Legend of Spacelord Mofo is a tale of love and guns, with Bran and Honey fighting the good fight against the galaxy, and sometimes each other, but always finding a way through… together… mostly… we hope…
