AfterShock Media Announces a Partnership with Alibi

AfterShock Media

AfterShock Media – the newly-formed company comprised of top independent comic publisher AfterShock Comics and leading distribution company Rive Gauche – and literary management company Alibi have announced a strategic alliance, uniting Alibi’s roster of writing talent with AfterShock Comics’ diverse and expansive IP library. The joint venture will also focus on nurturing new, AfterShock Comic talent who will have the opportunity to be represented by Alibi. As part of this strategic alliance, Alibi Entertainment, founded and headed by top literary talent manager Jake Wagner, will provide AfterShock with a wide roster of top-caliber writers for its current and future properties.

Among the many benefits of this alliance is the ability to quickly match IP to suitably talented writers – a key advantage that buyers in the market are seeking. Similarly, a comics creator coming to AfterShock Comics with a project in mind will have access to a wealth of writers to swiftly bring their project to life in TV and film. As a publisher with a demonstrated commitment to discovering new voices in the comics space, AfterShock will also work with Alibi to identify up and coming talent to mentor and manage.


AfterShock and Rive Gauche Merge and launch AfterShock Media

Rive Gauche, the distribution company behind globally-successful TV series Homicide Hunter, Something’s Killing Me, Very Scary People, Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, Ice Cold Killer, My Strange Addiction, My Crazy Obsession, and many more, announced a merger today with AfterShock Comics, the independent publishing company behind acclaimed series such as Animosity, Dark Red, Babyteeth, and A Walk Through Hell.

The new entity, AfterShock Media, will combine AfterShock Comics’ expansive library featuring comics from the industry’s most celebrated creators, including highly anticipated new releases We Live created by the Miranda Brothers, Miles to Go written by B. Clay Moore, and The Kaiju Score from James Patrick respectively. Rive Gauche’s global distribution power will propel the publisher’s IP into new formats – from TV and film to gaming and podcasts.  Rive Gauche CEO Jon Kramer, also the CEO of AfterShock Comics, will now assume the role of CEO at AfterShock Media overseeing both companies. Just earlier this month, Rive Gauche negotiated major film and TV deals having announced bringing The Kaiju Score to the big screen, and Undone By Blood to the small screen.

It was also announced that longtime Rive Gauche executive Marine Ksadzhikyan has been promoted to COO and EVP of Sales for Rive Gauche, expanding acquisitions and sales initiatives worldwide while overseeing the company’s operations. Marine has also been named Head of Business Development and Strategy at AfterShock Media, looking for and developing new business opportunities.

Lee Kramer will head up the AfterShock Film & TV division as President of Film & TV for Rive Gauche. AfterShock Comics will continue to be led by Editor-in-Chief Mike Marts, CCO/Publisher Joe Pruett, and President Lee Kramer.
