Free Comic Reader App Launch Date for Apple iOS Set
ORLANDO, Fla., May 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Red Giant Entertainment, Inc. (OTC:REDG), an Intellectual Property development company, in partnership with Glowdot Productions, Inc., an innovative app development company based in Santa Monica, California, announced today the launch date for PowFolio, a revolutionary new free-to-read comic book app built on a proprietary publishing and content delivery platform, set for May 5, 2016.
PowFolio users gain instant access to thousands of comics on their Apple iOS devices to read absolutely free and completely streaming. With an unparalleled, proprietary compression engine, readers can experience high-quality comics at faster speeds than ever before.
And because it’s streaming, readers never have to worry about PowFolio comics being a resource hog. Readers can enjoy as many comics as they want, from some of their favorite publishers, without worrying about space.
“PowFolio is open to all publishers who wish to participate,” stated Red Giant CEO, Benny Powell. “The app generates revenue through advertising throughout the comic books. Publishers participate in every form of revenue we generate, making it a win-win situation for everyone. Publishers can generate new streams of income, while app readers enjoy the free comics. And with new publishers, comics and features being added every week – the fun never ends!”
- Modern comics, including some of the best graphic novels and critically acclaimed comics!
- Massive GOLDEN AGE library of comics from the dawn of comics!
- KIDS comics that are fun for the whole family!
- MANGA comics that are among the fastest-growing fan-base worldwide!
- Automatically tracks your progress as you read, and allows you to tag your favorites for easy access at any time!

“We’ve been working hard to make certain we launch PowFolio in time for free comic day,” stated Michael Eng, Glowdot COO and partner, “Because PowFolio makes EVERY day a free comic book day!”
Free Comic Book Day is a global event where participating comic book specialty shops give away select comics to customers, and takes place on the first Saturday of every May. This May 7, 2016 marks the 15th year for the event.
“Building new comic book readers, and expanding the overall audience is at the heart of PowFolio,” added Powell. “By removing the cost and barriers to entry, PowFolio will do just that, and instill a love for the medium we are certain will translate to the print, collectible counterpart as well. In fact, we even give readers the opportunity to purchase many of the books they read in the app through direct links to the print collections on Amazon!”
Future updates will allow readers the option to subscribe with a small monthly fee to remove the streaming advertising as well as unlocking premium content and other exclusive features.
Rick Strom, Glowdot CEO and partner, added, “We’ve been making apps for many years, and hands down this is the best app we’ve ever worked on. We looked at what was out there and, with Red Giant, set out to engineer something truly unique and better than anything else in the market. The future of comic book reading has arrived!”
“Glowdot is proud to unveil our new state of the art publishing and content delivery platform,” added Eng. “PowFolio not only provides the perfect showcase for our technology, but marks the beginning of many things to come for us and our partnership with Red Giant.”
