G4 TV & TOYOTA PARTNER WITH FEAR AGENT FOR SDCC
Giveaways, trading cards, cars and more!
Image Comics' FEAR AGENT has been selected by G4 TV and Toyota in one of the most innovative partnerships of the San Diego Comic Con to serve as their official comic book mascot.
"Rick Remender's FEAR AGENT is a rare treat in comics these days," reviewed Humphrey Lee of fan favorite Ain't it Cool News. "Tons of action and genuine moments of utter badassery, the occasional flare for the dramatic and a nice use of black humor. This is definitely a highly underappreciated comic book. FEAR AGENT is a must for anyone who ever found themselves wishing Han Solo had his own movie series."
For those not attending the convention, you can witness the Toyota FEAR AGENT MOBILE in all segments filmed at the G4 TV booth. Most notably a live broadcast from the show floor on Saturday, July 22nd from 11:30 to 12:30, during which FEAR AGENT creators Rick Remender and Tony Moore will appear to sign 1000 FREE COPIES of a top secret FEAR AGENT book to be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
Series co-creator Tony Moore was floored by the incredible news. "I'm just super flattered, having Toyota and G4 select FEAR AGENT as their comic tie in is pretty huge," he said. "It's also very cool to see my art painted on the TOYOTA FEAR AGENT MOBILE."
"It's G4 and Toyota - we were incredibly stoked about the partnership," added Rick Remender. "The reaction to FEAR AGENT has
been nothing short of remarkable, but this is the cherry on top. I know current fans will be there and I hope anyone who hasn't read the series yet will stop by on Saturday for a very cool and very free book that I guarantee will rope in anyone with a soul."
So remember to drop by and get your picture taken in front of the FEAR AGENT MOBILE, pick up an SDCC exclusive FEAR AGENT trading card, get an autograph, check out the G4 TV booth and learn more about the 2007 Toyota Yaris. Rick and Tony will be signing at the G4 TV booth from 11:30am - 12:30pm on Saturday, your only chance to get one of the 1000 free Fear Agent books being handed out on live television!
