Graphic Novel Nerds Squawk with Excitement Over New Stan Lee "Origins" Storybook Apps
Marvel and Disney are coming down off the enormous success of “The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story,” to release another set of Origin Comic Books via the same style Storybook App. “Avengers Origins: Hulk” and “Avengers Origins: Assemble!,” are the latest releases announced at CES 2012, and are personally narrated by Stan Lee himself. Expect these in February for iOS devices on iTunes.
Here is a brief summary to wet your appetite:
The “Avengers Origins: Hulk” action-packed app tells the story of how Dr. Bruce Banner becomes the Hulk and the pursuit of the U.S. armed forces against Banner/Hulk. Through thrilling tap-and-play animation and interactive games, readers are able to experience Banner’s transformation first-hand. The “Avengers Origins: Assemble!” app brings to life the team of Super Heroes we’ve all come to know and love with Iron Man, Ant-Man, Wasp, Thor, and Captain America. In both apps, Lee lends his iconic voice in “Read to Me” mode, which is one of four reading modes that cater to a variety of reading levels. The two new interactive storybook apps narrated by comic book legend Stan Lee join “The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story” app, which was rated one of the “10 Favorite Apps of 2011” by Entertainment Weekly.
