Star Trek, Transformers, My Little Pony Launch as Motion Books
All we needed was a few world-renowned properties (I don’t know… let’s say, for the sake of argument, something everybody knows: Star Trek would be one! Maybe Transformers? That has legions of fans that span generations! And what about something that has found a new and growing audience, the biggest of the licensed comics, something truly inspiring and huge, like say… My Little Pony? Now THAT would be AWESOME!) All we needed, to consolidate our mission to change the way stories can be told, was a few little properties like that and Madefire could gently close its weary eyes and drift off into a deep and dream-cushioned slumber knowing that we had done all we possibly could, and that we had done it well.
Such are dreams made of (and let’s face it – that’s something we do here! We dream big!) But, y’ know, we’re not stupid! There are some dreams that are there to inspire; to drive you forward; to guide you on to greater, bigger things! But…
Well. Maybe one day. But it’s good to dream, right?
And yet… today we have these very titles right up there, in our store on the Madefire app, and available for everybody to read on deviantART. And they look… well frankly we think they look stunning!
IDW are one of the first of the new third party publishers to bring their content on to the Madefire platform, with many more to follow. They have been the very best partners we could wish for, immediately appreciating what Madefire had to offer and going above and beyond when it came to suggesting titles and books to adapt and work with, and getting approvals made. It has been a dream.
We’re still blinking a bit, rubbing our eyes. Our hair is a bit of a mess and we’re stifling a yawn. But it’s not something lingering, half-remembered. It’s not an impossible dream we can’t quite recall, or that lies beyond our reach. It’s reality.
Yup! (And it’s made Bronies out of the lot of us. I’m not even joking. It really is good!)
Here’s to the first wave, with many more publishers and epic properties to follow… We hope you enjoy them!
(And seriously – MLP… Check. It. Out!)
