“This is so exciting, I wish I was about 70 years younger so I could grow up with this because what this is going to look like in another couple of generations… I can’t even imagine.” – Stan Lee (co-creator of Spider Man, Thor, Hulk, The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, etc. ¬†Former editor, publisher and Chairman of Marvel Comics)

“I’ve known about the possibilities of AR for the past three years and we’ve been building in those worlds and as we were working on the graphic novel with Ben Jackendoff and Damion Scott, I know we’re going to do a traditional graphic novel. It’s wasn’t going to like a traditional graphic novel and I wanted elements of the book to where it came to life. VR, AR, AI all of the cool acronyms, we’ve already been dabbling and this is one end result.”will.i.am
Set for release on both iOS and Android mobile platforms, the Masters of the Sun Augmented Reality app will retail for $1.99. The standalone graphic novel of Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles released last summer is currently available for purchase at bookstores and online retailers (Amazon and Barnes & Noble) and Marvel Comics.
