With Free Comic Book Day just around the corner A.P.N.G. Enterprises is teaming-up with revolutionary mobile comics company Panelfly to bring NEW-GEN™ to a whole new audience.

Keeping in the tradition of Free Comic Book Day the first issue will be available free of charge for Panelfly users. “A.P.N.G.

We’re excited to be an integral part of the NEW-GEN™ experience. It’s going to be a killer addition to the Panelfly library!” said Wade Slitkin, CEO of Panelfly.
Free Comic Book Day is a national event held once a year on the first weekend of May. This year’s event will be taking place Saturday May 1, 2010. To celebrate this monumental occasion A.P.N.G. Enterprises will be on site at Jim Hanley’s Universe in New York City to give away special limited edition printed copies of the comic book as well as other great prizes. Major comic publishers release exclusive comic books through specialty comic book retailers to not only promote comics but also to bring new readers into comic shops across the country.

To coincide with the release of NEW-GEN™ on Panelfly A.P.N.G. Enterprises is authorizing the release of special Director’s cut versions of the first three issues of the limited series published by Marvel. These new versions of the original first three issues present the world of NEW-GEN™ in a darker and more edgy light. Issues four, five and six will also lead fans on a darker journey as Deadalus has evolved over time in The Underworld.
NEW-GEN™ is an epic story about twin brothers seeking to find their identity in different worlds. It takes concepts from classic mythology and puts them into an entirely new context that is relevant to today’s political, social and ecological issues.
“Watching NEW-GEN™ evolve from a fascinating idea into a fully-realized, beautifully rendered comic book universe has been a real thrill for me. Fans of science-fiction/fantasy owe it to themselves to give NEW-GEN™ some serious attention!” said Mark Hamill.
