Palm Beach, FL, March 30, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Fan favorite Penciler Keron Grant has joined Team Zoom Suit to complete issues 2-4 of the comic series based upon the award winning animated short. Keron fills the void left by Billy Dallas Patton when BDP left the project to work on DC comics Mister Miracle.
Zoom Suit’s editor and Graphic Designer Diana Striker explained, "We were sad to lose BDP, but he explained that working for a mainstream DC Comics title was his dream come true. We wished him the best on Mister Miracle, but we were praying for a miracle of our own. Getting a rock star penciler like Keron Grant on board was our miracle. This series is going to be huge! Maybe bigger than the animated short!"
Already famous for his work on X-Men, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, The Matrix, G.I. Joe and Iron man, Keron jumps on Zoom Suit hot off the heels of the DC Comics hit Son of Vulcan. Keron joins the team of award winning writer & director John Taddeo and comic industry icons Bob Layton, Gene Colan, Jim Starlin, Bill Tucci and Bart Sears on covers.
Keron Grant stated his excitement over the project, â€œAfter reading the script, I thought the project was written specifically for me. Zoom Suit has all the perfect combination of ingredients I look for in a story. This is something I’m enjoying, and itâ€™s definitely showing through in the work. I just handed in some of the best pages of my career."
"The animated short has been seen by nearly 200,000 people in the last 6 months. We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have such amazing success in such a short time. Now with Keron on board, It’s like grab hold and hang on for the ride of your life. If you’ve seen his work before you know what I mean, and if you haven’t …please buckle your safety belt", said John Taddeo
Zoom Suit has quickly become the darling of the indie fest circuit screening in NYC, Boston, Chicago, San Diego Comic Con, two stops in Texas, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and a remarkable eight events in California. Overall, over 500,000 people have viewed the short since the premiere at the Palm Beach International Film Fest where it won the award for Best Animation. Additionally, the Superverse website www.superverse.com at gets over 200 new fans viewing the short each day.
