Comic Books on the iPhone: 'Super Kaiju Hero Force'


If you're reading TUAW you most-likely are a fan of all-things Apple including the Mac and the iPhone. You may also be a fan of comic books. If so, the folks at Crispy Comics have a deal for you.

Now available for the iPhone and iPod Touch directly from the iTunes store, Crispy Comics is producing a comic book series specifically for those devices. And did I mention the comic is absolutely free.

Here's the scoop directly from Crispy Comics:

"Super Kaiju Hero Force" is the comedic story of 3 young fanboys who win a trip to Japan and end up trapped inside the monster costumes used on the hit live-action superhero show "Colossal Man." This first 11-chapter series follows Garganturo, Democules, and Mungor in the exciting origin to the series.

The series, which will be released on a bi-weekly basis and runs between 20 and 25 pages, will tell a continuing story culminating with a chilling cliffhanger. Then, once the original series runs its course, the Crispy Comics will release a "Special" edition with features such as creator commentary and iPhone wallpapers.

The "Special" edition will come with a minimal cost which is yet to be determined. The company also plans to release the "Special" edition on other platforms such as Android in the Summer of 2009. Check it out and if you do, be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.
