IDW Offers Paranormal Activity Digital Comic

Press release from IDW/Paramount Pictures:

Paranormal Activity Continues in IDW’s First Exclusive Digital Comic

Comic offers continuation of fright-fest movie

iPhone and iPod touch exclusive available now

Paranormal Activity, the smash hit from Paramount Pictures, has frightened millions of people worldwide, and now the terror continues at the iTunes App Store with Paranormal Activity: The Search For Katie, A Case Study by Dr. Johann Averys DMN. iPhone and iPod touch users have exclusive access to this digital comic, which begins AFTER the film’s shocking cliff-hanger ending. IDW Publishing’s first digital-exclusive comic follows a brilliant demonologist named Dr. Johann Averys, as he tries to find Katie, the tragic main character of Paranormal Activity.

Written by comic great Scott Lobdell (X-MEN; Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Music Box), Paranormal Activity: The Search For Katie pairs Dr. Averys with feisty S.D.P.D. Detective Singh; together they attempt to discover the origins of the demon who haunted Micah and Katie. Mark Badger (The Gargoyle) provides captivating art that expertly depicts the horror of this tale.

“Paranormal Activity impressed me not only through the movie itself, but also the way its audience was built online,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Publisher/Editor-in-Chief. “So an online-only, and specifically iTunes-only, release of a new story in comic form seemed like a great way to extend the filmmakers’ efforts and world of the characters alike.”

Michael Corcoran, Paramount Pictures President, Consumer Products & Recreation Group, said, “This is a film that owes its enormous popularity to the fans who made it such a hit through word-of-mouth. We are excited to be able to work with IDW to explore new story lines and themes touched upon in the film.”

Paranormal Activity: The Search For Katie digital comic ($0.99) is now available at Apple’s iTunes App store. Paranormal Activity will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download on December 29th. [END]
