Official Press Release

Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Productivity and Graphics Group, today announced that it is bringing Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons to fans at 2010 Comic-Con International held in San Diego, CA July 22nd through July 25th 2010. The acclaimed creator of the Watchmen comic book and film series will greet fans at booth #5238 for exclusive signings.

Comic-Con attendees can enter now via Twitter for the chance to

attend an exclusive dinner engagement in San Diego with Gibbons on

Saturday, July 24th.

Gibbons creates his characters and storylines using Smith Micro’s

Manga Studio software, which enables artists to quickly create

professional, ready-to-publish pages from start to finish. Gibbons

will use Manga Studio to design an all-new, limited edition poster

created specifically for Comic-Con 2010 attendees.

Dave Gibbons has worked in comics since 1973. Cutting his teeth on

undergrounds and fanzines, he became a frequent contributor to

Britain’s 2000AD illustrating “Harlem Heroes,” “Dan Dare” and co-

creating “Rogue Trooper.” Since then he has drawn and written for

most comics publishers on both sides of the Atlantic. His work

embodies a vast range of subjects and styles such as “Dr. Who,”

“Superman,” “Batman,” “Green Lantern,” “Predator,” “Aliens,” the Hugo

Award-winning “Watchmen” with writer Alan Moore, as well as “Give me Liberty” and “Martha Washington Goes to War” with Frank Miller. His semi-autobiographical “The Originals” won an Eisner Award in 2005.
