Submitted by Chris Crosby on March 26, 2008 - 22:05
Keenspot is happy to announce that three popular comics from the mind of Bobby Crosby are being added to the network. Last Blood, Marry Me, and +EV will now be Keenspot-branded sites and participate in cross-promotion with other comics in the line-up. Print editions of all three titles will continue to be published by the Blatant Comics label. "Bobby's comics now attract a readership of over 20,000 people daily, and we're thrilled to have them all in the Keenspot line-up," said Chris Crosby, Keenspot CEO and older brother of Bobby. "I've been working with him in a production capacity since he started, and with the buy-out of the company it only made sense to fold them into Keenspot."
In the horror-themed adventure Last Blood (lastblood.net), vampires must protect the last surviving humans so they can live off their blood after zombies take over the Earth. Written by Bobby and ilustrated by Owen Gieni (Sore Thumbs, WICKEDPOWERED) from a concept co-created by brother Chris, Last Blood has four comic book issues in print and a collected edition scheduled to ship in April from Blatant Comics. It debuted online in December 2006.Marry Me (marrymemovie.com) is a romantic comedy about a pop star frustrated with her love life who marries a random fan holding a “MARRY ME” sign at one of her concerts. Written by Bobby and illustrated by Remy "Eisu" Mokhtar (No Pink Ponies), a collected edition is scheduled to ship this spring from Blatant. It debuted online in February 2007.Poker is a way of life in +EV (plusev.net), a niche humor comic about an online poker pro named Corbin and his strange family and stranger friends. Written by Bobby and illustrated by Tiger Claw, +EV debuted online in August 2006 and a collected edition is scheduled for publication by Blatant this summer.ABOUT KEENSPOT ENTERTAINMENT Keenspot Entertainment's stable of web properties includes a network of more than fifty Keenspot-exclusive webcomic sites, in addition to #1 user-generated comics site ComicGenesis.com, which features over 10,000 independent webcomics.
