iVerse and Ape Entertainment Team for Exclusive Partnership
Comics publisher Ape Entertainment and digital comics company iVerse Media jointly announced that content produced and marketed under the Ape Entertainment and KiZoic imprints will now be available digitally on the Comics Plus platform as part of an exclusive partnership.
Though iVerse and Ape Entertainment have collaborated for years, this marks the first time that Ape has entered into an exclusive arrangement for digital distribution.
Current plans call for Temple Run to make its Comic Plus debut first, followed by Squids and then Fruit Ninja. Future titles and release plans will be announced soon.
An Ape Entertainment/iVerse collaboration that’s already borne fruit is the Dreamworks Comics app, currently available from the App Store. It features all of the Ape Dreamworks comics, including Shrek, The Penguins of Madagascar, Madagascar 3, Kung Fu Panda and Puss in Boots. Future plans call for a comic prequel to Rise of the Guardians, scheduled for release on October 17, 2012.
