Gifts are always a pain for friends and family, CM4 hopes to sneak their way onto the lists of those gamers for 2010 with a price reduction on their catalyst line. The slim and tough covers are designed to compliment the latest portable systems from Nintendo and Sony and even cover the Wiimote.
Drawing attention to function without bulk the skins should earn a spot on lists for those unable to pinpoint a specific idea for that someone. Also the style and form should be enough to muscle out any existing cases they might have.
The final day of images are live, check out the gallery below. Cosplay, Collectables and more are all inside to close out the 5 days of madness that is SDCC. Also I fixed the gallery system (finally) so everyone can actually preview images instead of loading the raw files.
The winner of the LIMBO contest will be announced shortly, hopefully everyone participated that had interest.
A new generation has formed in the comic industry, forging their name in the digital realm and over small press, these artists strive to become the next generation in comics. SKYBOUND is a new division of Image Comics focusing on these creators and giving them a broader platform.
Kirkman will stand at the helm of the company picking the creators to participate in the group, overseeing the promotion and expansion of the talented creators in the pool. All artists will get full backing from the company in their medium and in expanded mediums including TV and Film across the globe. Image will act as publisher and distributor to SKYBOUND giving access to comic stores and channels nationwide.
The first SKYBOUND original will be Witch Doctor, those interested can catch it this week at Comic-Con 2010. The story focusing on a “sick world” where mythical creatures interfere with the natural order. Discovered from the internet, this is an example of exactly what the team is looking for in new properties. Skybound originals should start hitting shelves around 2011 so keep an eye out. We’ll have our attention drawn to see how it pans out.
