PRLog - Jun. 27, 2011 - MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- In anticipation of the release of the full-length comic book movie, Mission Park: The Hero Complex, Perro Productions is releasing the first of five superhero origin comics this July. The first comic is a 40-page, full-color tale about the exploits of Mission Park Superhero Christopher Ember, The Original Man Of Fire. The story chronicles his exposure to the pyro virus in a biological accident, touches upon his high school and college years, and leads to his eventual decision to become a superhero. Ember’

The origin stories are a tie-in to the complex media structure designed for the Perro Worldwide Comics Franchise. The multi-media project includes comics, pulp fiction, film shorts, media crossing projects, online TV serials and feature movies. Writer and filmmaker Chip Perro is creating an action packed universe, where a story can begin in one medium and conclude in another. “Amazing stories shouldn’t be bound by a format structure,” explains Perro, “one of the great things about modern comics is that everything can connect. The next evolution is to connect the stories through multiple mediums.” With seamless cross-integration, characters will feel more real, and connect more strongly with today’s fast paced media consumer who experiences different mediums fluidly.
In the 1940s, superhero stories were packaged differently. Comics were only available in print media. Today, entertainment is much broader and more complex. Perro wants to bridge the media gaps by starting out in print and crossing to online motion picture action, with every ounce of story intact. The game changer is not about changing formats. It’s about using them all!
The Mission Park Superhero origin stories will be published through the end of 2011 and into 2012, with the second comic scheduled for an October release. Regular updates are posted online at Perro Worldwide Comics at http://www.perroworldwide.com.
