Valiant Entertainment and Visionbooks Partner for Animated Digital Comic Books

Cutting-Edge Digital Technology Brings Best-Selling Superheroes to Life, Beginning With Free X-O Manowar #1

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Visionbooks is proud to announce a new partnership agreement with award-winning comic book publisher, Valiant Entertainment. Launching today with the release of X-O Manowar #1-4 on the Visionbooks app, relive the best-selling first story arc of Valiant's alien-armored Visigoth hero as realized by Visionbooks' groundbreaking digital animation process.

Visionbooks revolutionizes comic book reading by transforming two-dimensional comic books into a digital animation experience. By combining traditional comics with cutting-edge technology, Visionbooks creates dimensional action like explosions, smoke, weather, character conflicts and action, all within static comic panels.

From New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Armor Hunters, Green Lantern) and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (Conan), X-O Manowar is the acclaimed series that relaunched Valiant's publishing line in 2012 to critical and commercial success. Named the "Best Revival of 2012" by The Onion/A.V. Club and "Best Ongoing Series" by Ain't It Cool News, the tale of Aric of Dacia's transformation from fifth-century freedom fighter to modern-day America's most powerful superhero begins right here with the chart-topping debut that IGN calls "one of the best books being published right now, period."

Visionbooks' technology and application showcases comics in a whole new way, while preserving the original narrative and layout found in paper comics. Click here to download Valiant's X-O Manowar #1, free of charge, right now at Visionbooks.

"This partnership with Valiant gives Visionbooks an opportunity to work with classic superheroes and create a cinematic reading experience that engages the next generation of new comic book fans," said Francesco Scrufari, co-founder of Visionbooks.

"Visionbooks is pushing the envelope with our new digital technology. Who better to partner with than Valiant, a publisher who is also known for their innovation and creativity," said Simone Offredo, co-founder of Visionbooks.

In addition to Valiant Entertainment, Visionbooks' current partnerships include: Asylum Press, Arcana, Real Interface Studios, A.P.N.G. Enterprises, Vanquish Interactive, Pavesio and Cavalletto.
