Malibu, CA & San Diego, CA --- Red Eagle Entertainment, LLC and Alias Enterprises, LLC announced today that they have entered into a far-reaching business relationship to develop, produce and publish new comic books and graphic novels for global markets based on Red Eagle-managed properties and brands. In addition, Red Eagle will have a "first-look" right to develop motion pictures, television programming, video games, and other ancillary products that are based upon Alias comics, graphic novels and original story concepts. Red Eagle further announced that Mike Miller, the Executive Director of Alias Enterprises and original artist on Red Eagle's NEW SPRING comic publication, will bring his artistic skills and art direction to future Red Eagle projects, including unannounced projects based upon other works in Robert Jordan's epic series THE WHEEL OF TIME.
"We are impressed by the professionalism of Alias Enterprises and the inspired workmanship of its products. They have a solid track record in delivering high-quality comics and graphic novels," said Rick Selvage, Chief Executive Officer of Red Eagle Entertainment. "Alias is a perfect fit to Red Eagle, as they bring complementary skills and recognize the importance of building universal brands that appeal beyond traditional comic buyers to new readers around the world."
"We're really excited about working with the Red Eagle team on what looks to be a long-term relationship," said Brett Burner, President of Alias Enterprises. "There are strong benefits to Alias in giving first-look rights to such a well-connected entertainment company. In addition, our relationship with Red Eagle provides an opportunity for members of our creative team, such as Mike Miller and colorist Etienne St. Laurent, to renew their working relationship with Red Eagle."
Miller and St. Laurent were the original creative team working on Red Eagle's NEW SPRING comic publication, a series based on Robert Jordan's prequel to his epic saga, THE WHEEL OF TIME.
