SOLICITATIONS: Immedium heads to iVerse and Comics+
Immedium is an innovative publisher of wonderfully illustrated books, ranging from appealing children’s adventures to a dynamic photo essay on the annual art festival Burning Man. Now Immedium partners with iVerse Media to offer its catalog of entertaining stories on iVerse’s popular Comics+ reader (http://comicspl.us/).
Comics+ is iVerse’s free Apple iTunes application ( http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/comics/id323397665), with which people download books to read on their iPhones or iPads.
“Since 2005, children and adults have appreciated the unique combination of humor, design, and artistry in our books,” explained Immedium’s publisher Oliver Chin. “Now we’re glad that our e-books can provide that high level of quality and value to new fans.”
“At iVerse, we’ve really been focusing on expanding the amount of content we have for kids within our apps,” said Steve May, Director of Business Development at iVerse Media. “We’re very happy to now be able to offer our readers the beautiful library of children’s books from Immedium in both our Comics+ and Comics+Kids apps. The stories are fun and the art is exceptional. Parents and kids alike should really enjoy reading these books.”
“Now readers of all ages can bring our fantastically drawn children’s adventures wherever they go. Friends and family can share them in living color, and then start their own book collections,” Chin added.
