Pocket God Leaps From iPhone to Comic Book

Popular iPhone game Pocket God is getting its own comic book.

Bolt Creative, producers of the game, tells Kotaku that they've cut a deal with indie comic book company Ape Entertainment to create a new series based on their game.

"A comic book series is a natural extension of the Pocket God brand," noted Dave Castelnuovo, CEO of Bolt Creative. "Ape Entertainment is the perfect partner to help bring our island to book form."

The comic will be released as a digital four issue mini-series through iVerse Media, and later sold in print. Spokespeople for the two companies say they also plan to release a trade paperback version.

"We are extremely excited to be working with Bolt Creative to bring Pocket God into the comic book space," says Ape Co-Publisher Brent E. Erwin. "Our goal is to expose some of the 2.1 million Pocket God fans to the world of comics, and conversely introduce comic book fans to the world of Pocket God with this fun and exciting endeavor."
