The folks behind the wildly popular Comic Book Creator have picked up two more big names to add to the title's stable. Both Marvel Comics and Virgin Comics have signed on to have their own versions of the software made.
The huge news is that Planetwide has signed a deal to create a specialized version of its software that will enable buyers to put their own spin on Marvel’s extensive lineup of super heroes. Marvel characters like the X-Men, Spider-Man, Hulk, Ghost Rider and the Fantastic Four, to name a few, are all part of the deal. Included in the deal are the rights to create booster packs, as well.
Also announced is the upcoming release of a specialized version of the Comic Book Creator software for Virgin Comics. This deal will enable fans of comics created by the likes of Deepak Chopra to create their own stories. These comics are a little new on the American front, but they are taking off. The Planetwide release doesn't give a date for this title, but does say it's coming soon.
The popular Comic Book Creator software enables comic and gaming fans to create their own personalized comics using famous characters, and not so famous ones, as well. The creator enables the drafting of actual comic books for printing, e-mailing or even use in a blog. A pretty darn cool idea that looks like it’s more than taking off.
The main Comic Book Creator software costs about $29.99 retail and can be found online in a trial version also.
The Marvel version is due out Aug. 25, and fans will find they will soon have a location to post their work for the world to see.
Planetwide Games has multiple deals working for its creator software. Big game makers like Sony have already signed on to enable their gamers in EverQuest II to use the software. It seems there’s no end to the application and perhaps now Marvel fans will be able to make their version of the Fantastic Four a little cooler than the big screen did!
