Red Giant Entertainment Releases Stellar Talent Lineup for Free Comic Book Day Initiative and Giant-Size Line

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTCQB: REDG), an innovative Intellectual Property company specializing in high quality characters and content for use in a variety of media and entertainment, today released the full Intellectual Property (IP) and talent line-up for the Company's Free Comic Book Day initiative, commencing in May of 2014.

"As most investors are well-aware, Red Giant is transitioning to a Company focused on the Free Comic Book day program that has become one of the most successful, if not the most successful promotions in the comic industry," stated Red Giant Entertainment, CEO, Benny Powell. "We are taking the dynamism and excitement of Free Comic Book Day's annual event and making it a weekly occurrence, using our proven characters and stories as well as great new ones to draw consumers into stores."

"This ad-driven model is reliant on the appeal of the books themselves. And of course, that is reliant on some of the industry's finest talent, overseen by industry guru David Campiti, who has produced thousands of comics over the past 30 years," said Powell. "Consider: An award-winning, Pulitzer Prize-nominated novelist; an Emmy nominee; two screenwriters; a playwright; a New York Times best-selling author; veteran Marvel, DC and Image artists and writers and colorists and editors; internationally-famous designers who create videogame art -- a luxury of riches in our most essential business unit."

The creative teams and line-up are as follows, with Brian Augustyn and David Lawrence as editors:
