Media Release — We first teamed up with Cryptozoic Entertainment to create the CBLDF Liberty Trading Cards, with proceeds going to the Fund. We’re taking a second step in our partnership and our shared dedication to Free Speech as Cryptozoic enters the world of digital publishing. Cryptozoic has launched a comic reader with top-quality content for the iPad™, iPhone™, and iPod Touch™, with a percentage of the profits dedicated to benefit CBLDF.
To celebrate the exclusive release of Blizzard™ manga on the Cryptozoic Comics app, Cryptozoic is offering a free download of the full 160-page manga, Warcraft: Legends Vol. 1, for the first week of its release (through June 2nd)!
The new Cryptozoic Comics app will include content from leading publishers such as IDW™ and Top Cow™, individual creators, and exciting original comics that have been exclusively designed by Cryptozoic for the new platform. Furthermore, the platform will feature critically acclaimed narratives from Blizzard’s™ extensive catalogue of manga, beginning with Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy Volume 1, Dragon Hunt, Starcraft: Ghost Academy Volume 1, and World of Warcraft: Death Night.
Another unique facet that Cryptozoic’s digital comic reader will provide is an interface link to Comic Book Legal Defense Fund announcements inside the app. Not only are a percentage of the proceeds going to the Fund, but our message and protection of Free Speech will be at everyone’s fingertips.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the launch of Cryptozoic Comics in the digital space,” says Cory Jones, Cryptozoic Entertainment President and CCO. “Creating such a platform that tells original stories, provides Blizzard fans greater access to amazing manga, and supports the CBLDF in a significant way is truly an important step forward for Cryptozoic Entertainment.”
Available as a free download through the Apple App Store™, the Cryptozoic Comics app will receive new content on a monthly basis. Fans will also have the option of downloading previews of their favorite comic book and manga titles free of charge. So head on over to the app store and download your free copy of the Cryptozoic Comics app and Warcraft: Legends Vol. 1 today!
