We’re getting ready for our launch of Team M.O.B.I.L.E. next Thursday (1st September 2011), but in the meantime, here’s a sneek peak at a promotional image for the comic, art by Andrew Chiu, ably assisted by Kris Carter. This is work in progress – you’ll see the final version later this week.
Team M.O.B.I.L.E. is the first fully originated ROK Comics title and we’ll initially be publishing it as a weekly web comic, followed by roll out on iPad and other devices. This is an ongoing adventure comic, centering on the story of teenagers recruited into a secret organisation to battle crime, terrorism and other dangers – some stranger than others.
And if you’re wondering why a secret organisation would risk such young lives, there’s a very good reason, and all will be revealed in the coming weeks and months…
Team M.O.B.I.L.E. is the creation of ROK founder Jonathan Kendrick, a concept he has been developing for several years. Inspired by a love of James Bond and comics, he came up with the back story for the comic, including its top secret ‘MindMerge’ technology and gadgets.
The strip is written by John Freeman from storylines by Jonathan Kendrick, with art by Andrew Chiu. Kris Carter is colouring the title, with Jim Campbell providing lettering and logos.
ROK Comics has previously published creator-owned and licensed strips for mobile, with three iPhone apps – Ligeia the Vampire by Rodrigo Diaz Ricci, The Mobile Gospel by Rich Diesslin and Madd Science by Steve English. Further iPhone apps, working with a number of different publishers, are in development.
ROK Comics, part of ROK Global PLC, continues to provide mobile comics content for WAP subscription services across the globe and is currently working with partners in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
