July 15, 2013 – San Diego, CA. – You’ve heard of all the great things comiXology is doing during Comic-Con International (Booth #2547) in San Diego with their “Meet Your Makers” summer event, but what you don’t know is that it’s all a part of the “Take Comics Further” campaign – comiXology’s new ad campaign and tag line that will be displayed in surprising places across Comic-Con International and soon displayed all over the world. ComiXology enlisted Girardville Miners’ Cooperative based in New York City for the branding and campaign initiative.

To celebrate the unveiling of the “Take Comics Further” ad campaign and the new tag line, each day at Comic-Con International the first 100 fans that come to the comiXology booth will receive a free t-shirt sporting one of the ad capmaign’s more humorous slogans.

 

“We are so pleased to finally unveil our new ad campaign and be able to offer this great limited edition t-shirt at Comic-Con International to all the wonderful comiXology fans out there,” said Samantha Saturn, Chief Marketing Officer for comiXology. “The entire comiXology team is passionate to “Take Comics Further” and we can’t wait until everyone at Comic-Con sees all the surprising places our new ads show up at the convention!”

“This campaign combined with all the sponsorships and events that make up the ‘Meet Your Makers’ extravaganza just builds upon our commitment to creators that started earlier this year with the debut of comiXology Submit,” said Chip Mosher, VP Communications & Marketing for comiXology. “Celebrating my 25th anniversary at Comic-Con this year, it is fantastic to work for a company that can give back both to the show and the comics community in such an expansive way this year.”

New and current comic book and graphic novel fans alike should come by comiXology’s booth (#2547) for a first-hand look at the digital comics platform. Offering more than 40,000 comic books and graphic novels, comiXology’s cloud-based digital comics platform redefines how people around the world discover, read and enjoy comics on digital devices. ComiXology’s booth will have plenty of devices where you can get a hands on demonstration or get the questions you’ve been dying to ask answered.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
