[prMac.com] San Diego, California - Pygmies have dads too! Ape Entertainment and Bolt Creative are proud to announce that Pocket God Comics, the digital comic book series based on one of the best-selling iPhone apps of all-time, Pocket God, is now free in honor of Father’s Day. The comic app, including the first issue, is free through Sunday, June 17.
Pocket God Comics issue No. 1 “The Gem of Life - Part One” starts with Ooga questioning the Gods and their relentless Pygmy pounding, but the gods strike back, taking away the gift of immortality bestowed upon the islanders and forcing Ooga and the gang on a dangerous mission to recharge the Gem of Life, which fades a little more with each new Pygmy death…
Winner of the 2011 ‘Best Comic App’ award from the Best App Ever Awards, the Pocket God Comics series follows the adventures of Ooga, Nooby, Klik, and the rest of the Pocket God Pygmy tribe as they try to outsmart the angry gods. Based on Pocket God, one of the best-selling iPhone apps of all-time, the full-color digital comic book series is one of the most successful digital comics to-date. The comics are available on the App Store via iVerse Media, a digital distribution partner of Ape Entertainment.
In addition to the Pocket God Comics content, the App also houses “The Pygmy Peril," a free newsletter giving readers a peek behind the curtain to see the inner working of the Pocket God creative team.
Ape hopes that Pocket God Comics will inspire new readers to discover the exciting world of comics through their local comic book shops.
