Platinum Films has announced a new partnership with Titan Publishing for a range of official comic magazines based on the 3D CGI children’s show, “Matt Hatter Chronicles.”
The deal will see a series of magazines published by Titan, all featuring bespoke comic art created by the company. The comics, like the TV show, will be targeted to boys, ages 5 to 10.
The first issue is expected to hit stands in the beginning of 2013, available in both hard copy and digital formats.
“Titan is very excited to be publishing the official comic magazine of Matt Hatter,” says Chris Teather, publishing director, Titan Magazines. “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.”
“Matt Hatter Chronicles” first aired on Nicktoons in the U.K. in October 2011 and on the U.K.’s CITV in March. A new season is airing on Nicktoons now and is due to air on CITV this fall. The series has also been sold to Nickelodeon in Australia and will air on RTE in Eire and Teletoon in Canada.
ITV Studios Global Entertainment was recently appointed to represent the franchise for consumer products merchandise, home entertainment and promotional rights in the U.K., Eire, Australia and New Zealand.
