Official Press Release
Kickstarter sensation “SullivanÂ’’s Sluggers”, the pending graphic novel from creators Mark Andrew Smith and James Stokoe, will debut as a series of single issues with issue #1 premiering today exclusively on comiXology Â— the worldÂ’s largest digital comics platform with over 75 million downloads to date. Earlier this month, “Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” took the internet by storm with a Kickstarter campaign that outperformed even the most wild expectations. Now, fans wonÂ’t have to wait one more day to experience a taste of the “Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” graphic novel with “Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” #1on comiXology today.
“Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” quickly became an internet phenomenon after its Kickstarter campaign surpassed its initial goal of $6,000 and almost hit $100,000 in the 30-day campaign. The graphic novel was also optioned for adaption to the silver screen before the Kickstarter campaign even ended. Created by Mark Andrew Smith and James Stokoe, the team behind “Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” didn’Â’t want to wait until the graphic novel was printed to get it into the hands of fans, so they approached comiXology to serialize the graphic novel over six single issues.
“We’Â’re excited to be able to bring ‘Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers’ to comiXology before the graphic novel comes out in print,Â”” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. Â“It was great for comiXology to be counted among the early incentives for the bookÂ’s backers during the Kickstarter campaign and now we canÂ’t wait to let the rest of the world in on this bloody great comic.Â”
Â“ComiXology is the premier place for digital comics,Â” said co-creator Mark Andrew Smith. Â“Releasing “Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” with comiXologyÂ’s unique one-two punch reading experience of CMX-HD and in their revolutionary Guided View gives fans something different than with the print graphic novel. From shopping to reading, there just isnÂ’’t anything else out there that touches comiXology.Â”
“Sullivan’Â’s Sluggers” tells the story of a down and out minor league baseball team and their Coach, Casey Sullivan, as they face off against a terrifying legion of undead monsters in an epic fight for survival. When AmericaÂ’s favorite past time becomes one teamÂ’s ultimate nightmare, hilarity, horror and one killer comic ensues.
