I’ve been familiar with this unique action, kung-fu series for a while now. The blend of comics and short films is a great idea. I spoke to the guys behind Justice For Hire at Comic-Con and picked up a few things from them, and now they’re launching onto the iPhone, which is an impressive step. Press release below.
“JFH: Justice-For-Hire” Launches on iPhone and Vuze
Following the critically acclaimed comic book’s first season in 2008 and the continuing web series in 2009, the world’s first “ultra-realistic” mixed martial arts action series, “JFH: Justice-For-Hire”, has officially partnered with iPhone developer Iconology, Inc., and Vuze, the world
leading provider of online high definition (HD) video content.
Iconology, Inc.’s iPhone application (app), Comics by ComiXology, debuted at last week’s San Diego Comic Con, and within days shot up the ranks of iTunes’ top selling e-books to the number two position, which it continues to hold this week. “JFH is a fun, high-action, innovative book with some great video content attached. We’re excited to get Creative Impulse comics on the Comics by ComiXology iPhone OS app,” stated Iconology’s principle, David Steinberger. While the “JFH” comic book series is currently available in the Comics app, ComiXology plans a stand-alone “JFH” app to launch this summer, packaged with the live action content that has distinguished the series and the Creative Impulse Entertainment (CIE)
company from the pack of traditional comic book publishers.
Vuze launched both a “JFH: Justice-For-Hire” Channel and a new Media Hub site dedicated to “JFH,” on the Vuze HD Network. According to Jeff Rowe, Vuze’s Executive Produce, “Vuze is thrilled to be partnering with JFH in delivering their cutting edge web series to avid fans on Vuze.”
“We are totally enthusiastic about the partnerships with Vuze and Iconology,” said CIE chief executive officer and “JFH” creator Jan Lucanus. ”They are both special companies that are driven by the same goal as Creative Impulse, which is to make the coolest content possible
and get it out to the people in a massive way. Vuze and Iconology are leading the pack in digital distribution, and we are pushing the boundaries of innovation, so it’s a win-win for all, especially the fans”.
