LOS ANGELES- January 8th, 2008 – Five thousand views in fourty-eight hours. That was the final result when the trailer for NORTH WIND, BOOM! Studios’ latest mini-series, was featured on MySpaceTV over the weekend.
Supporting the historic simultaneous release of NORTH WIND in stores and online at MySpace Comic Books (http://myspace.com/comicbooks), the NORTH WIND trailer serves as another way to get people excited about BOOM! Studios’ latest comic book offering.
“MySpace Comic Books directly targets their 145,000 friends, but we knew we wanted to reach beyond that targeted group. Getting the NORTH WIND trailer featured on MySpaceTv in conjunction with our current promotion with MySpace Comic Books allowed us to interest a wider group on MySpace. And, you know, doing a trailer is just a cool way to promote any comic!” Chip Mosher, Marketing and Sales Director for BOOM! Studios said.

To produce the trailer, BOOM! Studios turned to Craig Kennedy of CK Creative, winner of last years’ LEFT ON MISSION trailer contest.
“It was great coming back and doing another trailer for BOOM! Studios especially as NORTH WIND is such a great epic concept. It gave me a chance to make a different style of trailer from the one I did for LEFT ON MISSION. Something eerie, desolate, cold and epic…well, that’s what I hope people get from it anyway,” said Craig Kennedy.
Written by David DiGilio, best known for writing the film EIGHT BELOW and creating the ABC TV show TRAVELER, NORTH WIND is a five issue mini-series set in a future Los Angeles after a new ice age has covered the earth. NORTH WIND chronicles the rise of a new hero in a dystopian world where people burn books for fuel, and Skinrunners trade valuable pelts for rations and warmth. The first issue features a cover by Andrew Huerta with interior artwork by newcomer and soon to be fan-favorite, Alex Cal.
MySpace, the world’s most popular social network, and BOOM! Studios, a leader in comic book and graphic novel publishing, announced a partnership January 3rd to provide the MySpace Comic Book community with free digital downloads of BOOM! Studios’ highly anticipated new comic book series, NORTH WIND. Throughout the five-issue mini-series, MySpace users will be able to download all the issue of NORTH WIND for free exclusively on the MySpace Comic Books profile (http://myspace.com/comicbooks) the day each issue hits store shelves.
