Official Press Release

"Sparks,” the first Motion Comic created specifically for the iPhone and iTouch is proudly presented by Catastrophic Comics. The “Sparks” Application, which includes original artwork in addition to the original motion comic, can be downloaded for 99 cents at the iTunes Store (keywords: "Sparks Part 1"; "Catastrophic Comics"). A superhero noir-thriller that was published as a comic book series in 2008, “Sparks” bridges the gap between the printed page and full-fledged animation.

"Part 1” is voiced by actors Michael Paré ("Eddie and the Cruisers"); Michael Bell ("Transformers"); Charlie Brill ("Star Trek"); Kevin Sherwood ("Gamers"); and Courtenay Taylor (“Justice League Heroes”). The episode also features actress Ashley Bell, who currently stars in the new Showtime series "United States of Tara."

Christopher Folino, writer and producer of "Sparks,” comments, "This application is the immediate future of comic books. “Sparks,” in addition to being the first Motion Comic of its kind to debut on the iPhone, features tremendous voice talent and production value."
