Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
Helios Entertainment has partnered with comic publisher Arcana to officially release the first highly anticipated graphic novel “The Inventor: The Story of Tesla” at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego taking place July 12th-15th. For a limited time only, Tesla fans can receive a free download of the comic’s Chapter One preview. Pre-orders of the full graphic novel, which is scheduled to be released this summer at Comic-Con at the Arcana booth, will be available in paperback and digital download at: http://www.TheInventorSeries.com.
“The Inventor: The Story of Tesla” is the first graphic novel in a series on ground-breaking modern inventors in the 19th and 20th century. The 150-page six-chapter comic illustrates how one man, Nikola Tesla, stood against the goliaths of industry and changed the world with nothing but his mind, passion, and vision for a better humanity.
“I was inspired by the true story of Tesla and wanted to empower kids and adults to make a difference in the world with the power of their mind just as Tesla did,” said Ravé Mehta, creator and head of Helios Entertainment. “‘The Inventor’ is a graphic novel that doesn’t have the blood and violence traditionally seen in comics; it’s more of a thought-provoking human drama of the real battle that took place between Tesla and Edison as they fought to invent the 20th century and set a new course for humanity.”
Tesla has been a seminal influence on some of today’s most dynamic and creative minds. In 2011, Google CEO and Co-founder Larry Page referred to Nikola Tesla as his childhood hero at the Google Zeitgeist Conference, and called him “the greatest inventor you could imagine.”
Some inspired Tesla fans and marketers have adopted his name to brand such progressive products as electric cars (Tesla Motors) and sophisticated graphic processors for high-end science and engineering computer applications (NVIDIA Tesla GPUs). There's even an American hard rock band, Tesla, who named themselves after the inventor because he pioneered the radio.
Helios Entertainment plans on using the graphic novel to generate interest and audience feedback to help shape ‘The Inventor’ World which will include games, apps, and a film that’s currently under development.
