Los Angeles, April 7th 2014- DogEaters Manga, an original comic series created by Malcolm Wong is now available EXCLUSIVELY on the iBookstore. Originally based on an award winning story that was adapted for comics by the Dabel brothers & beautifully brought to life by Guillermo Angel, DogEaters was intended for print release as a single graphic novel. However, it is now being released in advance on the iBookstore platform in e-book format as a six issue limited series. This is part of an emerging trend that is seeing independent creators decide to release first digitally to maximize brand reach, creating a premium print version later for rabid fans.
“DogEaters is set 175 years after the Die Off. We’re not sure of exactly all the details, but mankind’s failure to transcend the Petroleum Age is not just because we run out of gas.” says Malcolm Wong. “The over-arching reason for the end of civilization is because the power elite makes unethical, selfish, and unsafe decisions in order to continue to reap insane profits. Agribusiness uses methods that could arguably be said to cause food allergies, autism, ADD, etc. I extrapolated from this to include a catastrophic Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE -commonly known as mad cow disease), which wipes out the domestic hoofed animals. Feral dogs were plentiful and become a major food source. And I thought it made a catchy title.”-
Doesn’t sound that far fetched, does it?
“It’s encouraging to see creators like Malcolm embrace the possibilities of digital” explains Manoj Rao, Founder of Media 11:11. “There will always be a place for physical books, but the reach of digital offers intriguing possibilities for independent digital creators to get their brands out there.”
