Paramount is getting in on the “mobile comics” market.
Variety reports that the studio’s Paramount Digital Entertainment division as partnered with Singapore-based Omnitoons to deliver “manga-styled series” based on the hit British movie Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (which featured Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson). Adaptations of Eagle Eye and the Mission: Impossible franchise will follow.
The studio views the comics primarily as marketing support for movies at, or just before, the time of their international release.
The comics will be available for download from major service providers and content distributors worldwide.
