Official Press Release
The hit Image Comics series Dynamo 5 returns to comic book shops with a new story in June with the release of “Dynamo 5: Sins of the Father” — but before it hits the comic shops, readers can catch up on the original Dynamo 5 saga digitally as the original series begins a weekly release schedule in iVerse Comics.
The first eleven issues are available for download in iVerse Comics right now, with new issues of Dynamo 5 released every week until the original 25 issue run of the series is complete. Each issue will be available for $0.99, and the first issue is available as a free download.
“We’ve had a lot of success with our partnership with iVerse,” said Dynamo 5 writer and co-creator, Jay Faerber. “And with the upcoming launch of ‘Dynamo 5: Sins of the Father’, it makes sense to speed up iVerse’s release of the book so fans have a chance to catch up before the new series. The iVerse reader is a great way for people to experience Dynamo 5 at an affordable price.”
“Dynamo 5 is an exciting series that has a unique twist on the super hero team dynamic.” said iVerse Media CEO Michael Murphey. “The art is top notch and the writing is superb. Getting this series for less than $25 is a steal.”
The series is currently available in iVerse Comics for iPhone, iPod Touch, and Apple’s highly successful iPad.
