Team Zoom Offers Free Downloads in Lieu of 2nd Printing

Official Press Release

Palm Beach, Florida – Numerous sellouts across the nation have led the
team behind the Zoom Suit comic book to offer the complete first issue
online, free of charge. The online version has been reformatted to fit
computer

screens and hi-tech devices.


“I don’t want to do a second printing, but I do want fellow comic fans
to be able to find and read Zoom Suit”, said Zoom Suit creator John
Taddeo. “This solution seems like a win-win because fans that want to
read it can now do so for free, while collectors won’t see their market
diluted with second prints”.


The web version of Zoom Suit #1 is available for download at
www.superverse.com. This will be the only comic in the series available
online.


Zoom Suit #1 was released April 26, 2006. Since the release the comic is
sold out at all but the most heavily stocked outlets. Copies have
sprung up on eBay.com at above cover price, and Zoom Suit variant
editions have sold from 2 to 50 times the regular $2.95 cover price.
Meanwhile, comic Shops have reordered over 5,000 copies of Zoom Suit #2.


“I’ve read every comic book I’ve ever owned, so I’m a reader first and
foremost. However, collecting is also a fun aspect of the hobby and I
want to recognize that aspect”, said Taddeo. “It’s fun when you’re in
on the ground floor and your comics rise in value. Collecting is an
important part of our hobby.”


Zoom Suit #1 received orders of over 20,000 copies by over 1,100 direct
market comic shops. To date over 2,000 comic fans have joined the Zoom
Suit fan club at www.superverse.com. Emails and calls from fans that
could not find a copy led to the offer of the free downloadable versions.


While the online PDF is the exact version of the comic found in stores,
the Zoom Suit “webisode” takes advantage of “screen size”. Unlike many
web comics which require scrolling or zooming, Zoom Suit was designed
to fit the screen of many of today’s high tech devices. The animated
short is also available online.


The Zoom Suit animated short has appeared in over 80 National Film
Festivals and has been screened to over 1,000,000 fans worldwide. The
short film has won numerous awards and is in negotiation for an animated
series and big budget feature film deal.


Zoom Suit #3 arrives in comic shops July 5th featuring covers by Bill
Tucci and Billy Dallas Patton. A limited edition is also available
featuring a cover by Bart Sears.
