New York Comic Con: Dark Horse reveal exclusive new series

October 13th, 2012 by bash Comments

Dark Horse Comics have revealed two new exclusive comic book series for the ePlate™ payment device at New York Comic Con.

The Dark Horse experience™ application is a payments application for the new battery-powered ePlate™ credit card.

With every purchase, card carrying comics fans can earn exclusive issues of two new series of Dark Horse comics. The first exclusive series is Conan: The Phantoms of the Black Coast. The second exclusive series is a team-up of Dark Horse characters X, Ghost and Captain Midnight!

To celebrate, Dark Horse will be hosting a signing with Dark Horse president, Mike Richardson, as well as Ghost artist, Phil Noto, and Captain Midnight writer, Joshua Williamson at New York Comic Con on Friday October 12 at 10AM in booth #1528, and will distribute a limited number of special edition prototype, demonstration ePlate™ devices to attendees.

At any time, an ePlate™ user can select to use the Dark Horse experience™ application for the ePlate™ payment device. The Dark Horse application allows users to earn pages of exclusive Dark Horse comic books with each purchase. After all pages of a particular comic are obtained, the user is provided with a complete digital comic. After a certain number of digital comic books are collected, Dark Horse provides, at no cost to the user, a collectible print copy of each exclusive comic book earned, unavailable anywhere else!

“Dark Horse will not only introduce two new exclusive comic book series, this will also introduce a revolutionary new way to earn and experience comics” said Mike Richardson, president and founder of Dark Horse.

“Conan and the new team-up are an amazing set of properties to feature on the new ePlate™ platform,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics. “Consumers can now receive comics just by living their life – just by using their ePlate™ device to pay for meals, comic books, movie tickets, or any other everyday item.”

The ePlate™ payment device is subject to a credit approval.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
