First Issue of Ape Entertainment’s Scratch 9 Sells Out

New All-Ages Title is a Runaway Hit!

Press Release: Ape Entertainment is pleased to announce that the new all-ages comic Scratch9 #1 written and created by Rob M. Worley and illustrated by Jason T. Kruse, has sold out from the publisher. This sell-out is an auspicious beginning for this break-out comic featuring a runaway cat who can summon any of his nine lives to help get him out of a jam.

“We knew the response for this book was going to be big so we made sure we over-printed it by a pretty large amount,” said Ape Entertainment Co-Publisher David Hedgecock. “Needless to say, the response was MUCH greater than anticipated and we owe a big thanks to all the retailers and fans for that.”

Though some copies of issue #1 may still be available at the retail level, Ape Entertainment recognizes that the sell-out is inconvenient for fans who are having trouble finding the book. To that end the book is now available on iTunes through the Comics+ app from iVerse Media.

“I’ve been floored by all the great buzz the book has been getting and pleased that we can keep the book available through the Comics+ app,” said Worley. “I know fans are going to love discovering all the aspects of our cat hero across the four-issues of the mini-series.”

Fans who don’t already have the Comics+ app on their iPad, iPhone or iPod can install it for free it from http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/comics/id323397665?mt=8

Download issue #1 today and find out why Katherine Dacey of School Library Journal says, “One of the best new series I discovered at this years’ New York Comic-Con is Scratch9!”

Scratch9 #2 is in stores now. The third and fourth issues arrive in comic shops everywhere in early November and December. All four issues of the mini-series are complete and ready to go to print, ensuring there’ll be no late shipping!
