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.
To help FEAR AGENT get the visibility the critically acclaimed
series deserves, Toyota has produced a San Diego exclusive FEAR
AGENT edition 2007 Toyota Yaris that will be on display at the G4
TV booth (#4229) throughout the entire weekend. Toyota has produced
this one of a kind FEAR AGENT MOBILE with hand selected art from the
Image Comics series created by Rick Remender and Tony Moore. In
addition, Toyota will also be producing limited edition FEAR AGENT
trading cards available only at the G4 booth.
"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
"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!
