Los Angeles, CA, July 29, 2008 -- MashON, a next generation online software application company announced today that Platinum Studios, Inc. (OTCBB: PDOS), an entertainment company that controls an international library of more than 5,600 comic book characters, has signed an agreement to license the MashON online platform for its online property, DrunkDuck.com.

These digital comic creations can be created and shared online by emailing them, posting them to your favorite blog or social network and posting them to MashON's gallery. MashON's interactivity will let the DrunkDuck fans create their own comic stories using their favorite DrunkDuck comic characters.
"MashON's Comic Book Creator platform is ideally suited for the comic book fans on DrunkDuck.com to create their own user-generated comics," said Philippe Benoliel, CEO of MashON. "We look forward to seeing what kind of digital comic books that DrunkDuck.com members come up with."
"By licensing the MashON platform for DrunkDuck.com, the MashON Comic Book Creator now interactively takes our non-comic creator users to the next level," said Brian Altounian, President and COO of Platinum Studios. "We have always wanted DrunkDuck users to be able to be inactive with their favorite comics and characters, and now they can."
Now you don't have to be a comic creator to create comics as fans of DrunkDuck's vast treasure-trove of comics and characters will soon be able to create their own personalized digital comics and graphic novels at MashON.com and at DrunkDuck.com.
