Second Sight Publishing and The Tygen Network Team for Chessmasters
Second Sight Publishing has teamed with The Tygen Network, which will be broadcasting on both Amazon Fire and ROKU, to publish the comic book title Chessmasters to coincide with the release of the Chessmasters animated series this June.
Chessmasters is a black superhero team thrust through different time periods to stop evil. The comic book series was created by the late Gary McClendon, who recently passed away from COVID-19, and co-written by CEO of Second Sight, Bradley Golden, who along with COO Marcus Roberts, will serve as cowriters and coproducers on the animated series with John Maurice from Tygen Network. Added to that, the Tygen Network has also worked out a lucrative deal with the independent publisher to produce movies, television shows, and other media from several of the company’s titles.
Second Sight Publishing and The Tygen Network will launch a Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaign, slated for March 31, 2021, with the funds going towards the production of the animated series for Chessmasters. Portions of the proceeds from the publication of the Chessmasters comic will go to the family of the late Gary McClendon.
