Rolo es un Ape!

Renowned Artist Signs Exclusive Deal with Ape Entertainment.
Rolando “Rolo” Mallada, an award winning artist from Uruguay, has inked an exclusive contract with Ape Entertainment. Having previously worked on the publisher’s Teddy Scares line, Rolo will now tackle a number of high profile projects for the company, including the soon-to-be-released Pocket God, as well as a top secret series set to debut in 2011. “We could not be happier to have Rolo locked in as a permanent fixture over here at Ape Entertainment for the foreseeable future,” says founder and co-publisher David Hedgecock. “Everyone who sees his work is in awe of what he’s capable of, and given the books he’s set to work on, mark my words, this guy will be a household name within a year.” Proving integral in the company’s ability to acquire the Dreamworks Animation license, a line that includes comic books based on fan favorites Shrek and The Penguins of Madagascar, Rolo is fast becoming a member of the industry’s “it” talent to look out for, thanks in part to his dynamic and eclectic art, a style that has been compared to industry heavyweight Humberto Ramos. “It’s an honor to have my work perceived in such a way,” states Rolo from his studio in Uruguay. “I’m always trying to improve as an artist, and signing an exclusive contract with Ape, a company that is rising in the ranks in their own right, is a dream come true. I couldn’t be more excited to be riding their current wave of success with them.” Rolo’s first published work under the exclusive signing, Pocket God # 1, will appear digitally on iVerse later this month, and then in print (with extra, never-before-seen content) in August.

Astroboy Oriental

Diego Jourdan , dibujante uruguayo radicado en Santiago de Chile, será el encargado de darle vida al legendario androide japonés (algo así como un Pinocho en versión manga) creación original de Osamu Tezuka- llamado ‘El Dios del Manga’- a mediados de los 60, donde se analizaban los problemas de la robótica (Tezuka llegó a concretar una serie de leyes sobre el tema, hermanadas con las 3 leyes de Isaac Asimov). El personaje tuvo su pasaje por las historietas, así como por una larga serie de anime (es considerada la primera del género, con capítulos de 20 minutos de duración en blanco y negro) que supo verse eventualmente en pantallas uruguayas y es motivo ahora de una adaptación cinematográfica que contará con las voces de Nicolas Cage y Freddie Highmore. La editorial estadounidense IDW prepara para su estreno una historia en 4 capítulos del personaje a cargo de Scout Tipton en los guiones y nuestro compatriota en los lápices, que comenzará a editarse en el mes de mayo y que estaría ambientada en sucesos posteriores a los narrados en el film.
La película, si supera una serie de problemas económicos que la acomplejan (la crisis no le es ajena a Astroboy), verá la luz en primavera próxima.
