Designed specifically for download onto the iPod and PC, The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore combines comic book illustration, with 3D animation, live action photography, newsreel archive and an original music score. The project pushes the boundaries of the graphic novel genre to the next level and creates an entire new form of media and fan generated content in the process.

The best fan generated comic books, animations and soundtracks will be posted at www.jonasmoore.com for fans to judge and a lucky few will invited to become a character in the full production.
The recently launched Triumph Tiger 1050 with its powerful build and sharp appearance makes it the obvious choice for inclusion within the novel. The combination of a relaxed riding position and supple suspension along with a fuel-injected, three-cylinder tractable torquey engine makes this versatile motorcycle the perfect ride for the lead character, Jonas Moore.
