Keenspot Gets WICKEDPOWERED
Submitted by Chris Crosby on December 19, 2006 - 04:00
Webcomics publisher Keenspot Entertainment has teamed with handheld laser developer Wicked Lasers to produce an original branded webcomic series called WICKEDPOWERED. As one part of a major sponsorship agreement spanning the entire Keenspot network (and which also includes exclusive sponsorship of the Keenspot header bar and a minimum number of Leaderboard banner adviews per month), Keenspot will produce a new comic installment three times each week.
WICKEDPOWERED, a full color sci-fi comedy adventure by the creative team of Keenspot's SORE THUMBS, follows the adventures of a laser-wielding all-girl SWAT team sent back in time by Wicked Lasers' future counterpart to stop a time-tossed alien threat from destroying humanity.
"WICKEDPOWERED is transparently inspired by '80s cartoons, which were almost always toy advertisements disguised as entertainment," said Chris Crosby, co-writer of WICKEDPOWERED and co-CEO of Keenspot. "In spite of that, those shows managed to win the hearts of a generation with their earnest fun and awesome cheesiness. While Wicked's lasers definitely aren't toys (though they're certainly as fun), we're attempting to do the same sort of thing for an older audience that's into webcomics. It's just fun!"
"I'm super excited about WICKEDPOWERED," says illustrator Owen Gieni. "This comic is a blast to draw. Wicked Lasers has been great to work with, they're letting us just throw it all in there."
The first four installments can now be found at wickedpowered.com, with a new comic published every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
