WirePop -- www.wirepop.com -- announced today the new webcomic "Masaru," by Brian Holley, will be joining the webcomic line-up on WirePop.com, the growing Manga and Manga-styled webcomic subscription magazine.
â€œMasaru breaks from the norm when it comes to mange-styled comics.â€ says Panella, WirePopsâ€™ Publisher â€œBrian is putting a unique spin on the super hero tale and putting it in a highly animated style comic. I think everyone will be surprised at the clean look of this comic by the very talented team that Brian has put together, and weâ€™re glad they decided to join WirePop.â€
Holley, talked about "Masaru" saying, "The title is about a twelve year-old kid that is the strongest super-hero in the Universe! He is physically strong, you know, like Hulk or Superman. Some of the ideas we explore are: â€˜What kind of an attitude would a kid that age, with that kind of power, really have?â€™ and â€˜How would other super-heroes (and villains) react?â€™ Masaru experiences a series of adventures that lead him across the Galaxy, and eventually into a discovery of the true source of his awesome power.
â€œI am so excited about the team we have put together for Masaru that I feel like Iâ€™m going to â€˜popâ€™! Omarâ€™s pencils have a unique Manga feel, and Santiago Lozano, a world-class artist, is doing the finishes, inks and colors. We couldnâ€™t have a better team."
