Platinum Films adds Titan Publishing.
Matt Hatter Chronicles is set to be spun into a series of official comic magazines by Titan Publishing.
Platinum Films will supply bespoke comic-style art for the publication, which will start with a special bumper issue in early 2013.
Chris Teather, Titan Magazines publishing director, says: “Titan is very excited to be publishing the official comic magazine of Matt Hatter. The show has been a huge commercial and critical success, and I am sure that the new title will be a hit with all of the series’ loyal fans.”
Nigel Stone, CEO of Platinum Films, says: “Titan, a respected name in books and comics with years of experience, is the ideal partner to adapt Matt Hatter Chronicles for the comic magazine format. The Titan comics will be welcomed enthusiastically by Matt Hatter’s legions of fans.”
The 3D CGI kids show first aired in the UK on Nicktoons in October 2011 and on CITV in March this year. It’s a co-production between rights-owner Platinum Films, together with Dream Mill and Canadian studio Arc Productions.
