August 6, 2012 in Books
[prMac.com] Geneva, Switzerland - Greco-Swiss artist, Christian Kallias today is pleased to announce the release of The Kyrian Chronicles Volume 1 (v1.0), his new manga / comic books crossover for iPad. The Kyrian Chronicles is an heroic fantasy tale that mixes multiple medias to tell an epic story full of battles, breathtaking vistas and powerful characters in full vibrant colors for the Apple iPad. The Kyrian Chronicles' main antagonist, Laiyos, is fighting for the future of Kyria, the planet on which this heroic fantasy story takes place. It's a planet similar to Earth in another galaxy, around a time period that would correspond to middle-age Earth.
Inspired by the biggest Manga classics (Dragonball Z, Saint Seiya, Record of Lodoss War) but also Comic Books like Spawn. Greco-Swiss Artist Christian Kallias has always been fascinated with epic battles and fantasy, as well as science fiction. So you can expect some interesting surprises within the storyline. His love for Hollywood blockbuster movies will also be felt throughout the pages of The Kyrian Chronicles.
The App also features background music from Eugen Dodenhoeft from German metal band Far-Beyond. This epic power metal tune is a perfect fit for the action and mature storytelling behind The Kyrian Chronicles. But worry not, if you do not like Metal music, you can easily disable it from the App navigational menu. The Kyrian Chronicles looks gorgeous on any iPad display, but it really shines on the new iPad's retina screen where every details can be seen with sharp graphics and high contrast in a beautiful way.
