MONTREAL, Sept. 6, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Studio Lounak, the Montreal-based
creative studio that is behind the graphic novelisation of the video
game Assassin's Creed, has released today a new project that the whole team has been working
on since the beginning of the year : a free webcomic hub!
Kimiq.com gathers numerous professionals working in the comic and
illustration industry, and publishes exclusive content every day of the
week. Among these artists, the studio is thrilled to announce the
collaboration of Yvon Roy, cartoonist at the newspaper Huffington Post,
and Yves Rodier and Frederick Antoine, authors of the comic El Spectro,
produced by the French publisher Le Lombard.
« The web, rapidly changing as it is, developed a whole new generation
of readers. Kimiq.com is an initiative whose goal is to satisfy these new readers with great
quality comics, all the while offering to its artists the possibility
to remain focused on their art and ensuring the economic viability of
their work », said Fabrice Forestier, founder of the Studio Lounak.
The purpose of the website is to simultaneously broadcast as widely as
possible the works that are published — in both French and English —
and to maximize the opportunities to capitalize on the content created
by the artists. In addition to the publication of the works in book
form, Kimiq will produce a variety of subsidiary products such as
prints and limited bookplates (ex libris).
