Outlaw Entertainment Launches

Posted by Luke Brown On April - 30 - 2009


Outlaw Entertainment launches this summer, along with three all-new comics. Read on for the full press release, and a glimpse at the June launching titles.

Raven Venture Partners (RVP) announces the backing of an innovative new publishing company called Outlaw Entertainment. The full service creative studio will focus on producing high concept/high quality graphic novels across various genres, targeted at multiple demographics.

“As consumers continue to adapt to the ever changing world of pop culture, Outlaw Entertainment will adapt with them, whether it’s through digital or print media” stated HJ Harrison, Managing Partner of RVP. “We are looking for Outlaw Entertainment to be a leader in the comic book/graphic novel marketplace, while also serving as an elite source for intellectual property development.”

Tony Hobdy and Rick A. Villa are the founders of Outlaw Entertainment and will oversee the graphic publishing arm.

Hobdy, who has managed the creation, production, and marketing for more than 300 multimedia projects with corporate clients such as IBM, Coca-Cola, and HP, is excited by the opportunity to bring original content into the marketplace. “We’ve been actively developing a uniquely diverse line-up of graphic novel titles for over a year now,” he said. “Because we’ve been involved in the development process for such a long time, we’re eager to see our public launch finally become a reality.”

With over ten years experience working with animation mega-brands such as Yu-Gi-Oh, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Dragon Ball Z, Villa has seen firsthand the benefits of being a creative house for new ideas and unique properties. “Outlaw Entertainment is in this for the long haul,” he said. “Our goal is not to have one great title, but a library of great titles across all genres.”

Working with top talent in both the comic industry as well as Hollywood, Outlaw Entertainment will release up to fifteen titles a year beginning in June 2009.
