Amazon Studios Releases Digital Comic
An effort in Los Angeles by Amazon.com to find screenplays has resulted in a new digital comic series, the firm said today, Blackburn Burrow. Amazon said the new venture from Amazon Studios will produce four issues of the comic, inspired by a screenplay optioned by Amazon from Jay Levy. Amazon said the digital comic will be a "way to test stories and learn about fan engagement". The company is looking at potentially turning the story into a full blown movie. Amazon Studios is run by Los Angeles, and serves as the production company for video content for Amazon. Amazon said that Blackburn Arrow revolves around a Civil War veteran and battles against supernatural horrors.
