Keenspot's "The First Daughter" sneak-peeks at Comic-Con before debuting on iPhone App Store, other mobile platforms

The First Daughter is a fun, quirky, hopeful heroine for a new generation of comic fans

Apple Valley, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2009

In The First Daughter, the new family-friendly comic book series from Keenspot Entertainment, the Commander-in-Chief isn't the only one in the family with presidential powers. Attendees of next week's sold-out Comic-Con International: San Diego will get a sneak peek at the series, with the first 24-page full color issue available at the Keenspot booth (#1229) as a limited edition convention exclusive.

In the first issue, fictional first daughter Tasha Tasker learns her position calls for more responsibility than she bargained for when she begins to display amazing abilities after discovering a secret room in the White House basement.

His daughter's unusual situation adds to the many worries of presidential dad Brad Tasker, a character inspired in equal parts by Barack Obama and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who may know more about what's happening to Tasha than he's letting on.

The First Daughter may be the first comic book series to be produced specifically for the iPhone, with each panel drawn to display beautifully on its 320x480 screen without any cropping.

Publisher Keenspot Entertainment has had great success on the mobile platform with their reformatted comic titles like romantic comedy Marry Me, which accounted for the top three bestselling comic book issues on the iPhone App Store in March. That success spurred the company to produce The First Daughter as a made-for-mobile comic, with full issues debuting on the iPhone before they hit mainstream print publication.

Issue #1, scripted by Mike Rosenzweig and illustrated by Rob Nix, will be available as a free app download this fall, with subsequent issues priced at only $0.99.

"The First Daughter is a fun, quirky, hopeful heroine for a new generation of comic fans," said Keenspot CEO Chris Crosby. "The buzz is unbelievably high for this one, we don't expect the Comic-Con limited edition issue to remain in stock for very long. Get there early!"

Writer Rosenzweig will be appearing at Keenspot booth #1229 throughout the convention, and will also be featured on Keenspot's 9th annual Comic-Con panel discussion Sunday, July 26th at 11am in ROOM 32AB.

Keenspot will be debuting a number of other titles at their Comic-Con booth, including convention-exclusive editions of Dreamless, Crow Scare, and Sorcery 101 plus book premieres No Pink Ponies Vol. 1, The Essential +EV, Accursed Dragon! Vol. 1, Zap! Vol. 2, Out There Vol. 3: Draft Picks, and Wandering Ones Vol. 2.
