Aspen Comics Reveals Idolized Week One Results
Official Press Release
ASPEN COMICS INVITES YOU, THE FAN, TO HELP CREATE THEIR NEW SERIES “IDOLIZED” – WEEK ONE RESULTS AND WEEK TWO CHARACTERS REVEALED!
For the first time ever, fans can have a hand in actually creating their comics, as readers get the chance to vote on the look of each of the characters in Aspen’s newest series, “IDOLIZED”, debuting in 2012. Now you, the fan, can have the unique opportunity of helping create Aspen’s next great series. If you’ve ever dreamed of creating comics, here’s your chance!
For each character, “IDOLIZED” artist Micah Gunnell gives Aspen three different ‘looks’ to choose from. But for this series, instead of Aspen selecting among the looks, they’ve decided to open it up to the fans, and let you decide.
All of the visual designs Micah’s been cooking up look absolutely amazing, so Aspen fully expected that it would be a tough competition, and in Week One that certainly held true. In Week One fans had the chance to vote on the designs for two characters, Regenerate and The Present, and, out of the hundreds and hundreds of votes cast, less than 30 votes separated the top design choices from their closest competitors.
Week Two of the voting is now live with two entirely new characters to vote on: HOCUS and MYTH! Don’t wait – visit www.Facebook.com/IdolizedComic immediately and cast your vote for your favorite design choices.
Each Monday, Aspen will be posting a new set of character designs for readers to vote on. The following Monday, a new set of characters will be posted, and the voting for the prior week’s characters will be locked. So, make sure to vote early and often in order to ensure that the characters in “IDOLIZED” look exactly the way you want them to! And, in order to help make completely sure that your favorites win, spread the word and get all of your friends and followers to vote for your top choice.
“IDOLIZED” is Aspen’s first-ever superhero series. It tells the story of girl with super-powers and a dark past, who seeks revenge, and ultimately finds redemption, over the course of competing in a televised super-hero competition show. Essentially, it’s “True Grit” meets “American Idol”…with capes. The series is written by David B. Schwartz (acclaimed writer of Image Comics’ “MELTDOWN”, “Aspen Showcase: Ember” and “Fathom: Blue Descent”), with explosive art by Micah Gunnell (“Shrugged”, “Executive Assistant: Orchid”, “Dellec”) and colors by David Curiel (“Executive Assistant: Orchid”), and will debut in mid 2012.
