Moon Girl Debuts on Comixology and iPhones

Photobucket


Coming out today from Comixology:

Masked vigilantes wage a psychotic war against 1950's bourgeois; it's The Dark Knight meets Mad Men. Clare is a Russian Princess happily exiled to New York. When enemies from the past threaten her new life, the repressed Warrior Queen fights back. In the media her secret, nocturnal adventures are attributed to a mysterious hero; Moon Girl. Champion of the counter culture, Moon Girl represents a movement of young people fed up with the corporatism and conformity of post World War II opulence. The urban legends of Moon Girl inspire the 'Super Manifesto' - a post human gospel. Fundamentalists subvert the establishment by dressing in bright technicolor clothes and taking futuristic new names. Extremists turn to violence and terror, expecting to shock the system into change. Only Moon Girl stands between them and us, anarchy and order.

8 pgs. Free. Available TODAY On Line and iPhones.

In 2010 we continue with an ongoing series at Comixology.

Kingpin of Pain Debuts On Line



PHILADELPHIA, PA - Tony Trov and Johnny Zito write and produce “Kingpin of Pain” The martial arts movie was an entry in the Philadelphia 48 Hour Film Festival. The 48 Hour Film project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which teams of masochistic film makers write, shoot, edit and score a short movie — in just 48 hours. The film won best editing and special effect awards for its epic karate fights and silly pyro stunts.

Written in four hours and shot in 14, "Kingpin of Pain" is about a tournament of warriors fighting over a sword of immortal power. It stars Adult Cover Girl, Stoya as Kamikaze SheGun 5000, the world's baddest ninja. Stoya's character is the reigning champion and uses the sword for evil.

"You're randomly assigned the props, dialogue and genre so you make the best of it. All the visual short hand we learned in comics came in handy," says Tony Trov. “A lot of the action centers on Stoya’s deadly kung fu skills. Her scissor chokehold can kill a man.” adds Johnny Zito.

"This is my first time playing a bad guy," says Stoya about her 48 Hour debut. "I'm handy with a sword and beating up boys is always fun."

"Kingpin of Pain" is available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHArut9JDyM

Tony Trov and Johnny Zito live in a big Philadelphia row home with all of their childhood friends and a cowardly dog. They are best friends for life and super writing partners. Read their girl gang vs Zombie comic at BlackCherryBombshells.com.

Stoya™ is original, outrageous, and chipping away at the common misconceptions regarding the adult industry and sexuality. Stoya’s youthful, pristine body envelops an old soul and intellectual mind. She is a rare combination of book and street smarts. In 2008 and 2009 Stoya achieved a unanimous sweep of best new performer awards, including the coveted AVN Best New Starlet and XBIZ New Starlet of the Year.
