CPM Unveils CPM Digi-Press

May 23rd 2005
CPM PRESS UNVEILS CPM DIGI-PRESS™,
OFFERING FREE ONLINE PREVIEWS OF
HIT GRAPHIC NOVELS


New York, NY (May 20, 2005) – Central Park Media is proud to announce a series of initiatives through its newly revamped CPM Press website (www.CPMPress.com), targeting both diehard graphic novel fans and casual readers alike. A number of offerings are slated to be rolled out over the coming months, including the launch of CPM Digi-Press™, a new online resource that gives fans Free! previews of CPM's latest graphic novels.

CPM Digi-Press™ will enable fans to flip through virtual pages, zoom in on tiny details, and recreate the experience of reading a graphic novel while sitting at their computer. CPM Digi-Press™ content can be shared with friends via e-mail, and fans can purchase a hard copy of the title directly from the website.

The first three titles currently available represent a variety of genres: Yongbi the Invincible 1 is a comedic sword & sorcery fable, Couple 1 is a lowbrow romantic comedy, and The World of Narue 1 is a romantic sci-fi comedy (which spawned a successful anime series by the same name). A new chapter, averaging 20 pages, will be added to each virtual book every week. New titles, such as the critically acclaimed Hard Boiled Angel 1 and the highly anticipated Masca 1 will debut soon, so fans are urged to check the website frequently for new content.

CPM Digi-Press™ is a great way for our fans to sample new graphic novels,” says Bochan Kim, Licensing and Marketing Supervisor. “We realize it can be difficult to track down new releases in some areas, and we're hopeful that CPM Digi-Press™ will entice readers to check out titles they might not otherwise have discovered on their own. It also serves as a way to give something back to the many readers who have made us so successful.”

Another consumer friendly incentive is “The CPM Press 10th Anniversary Sale”, which offers online buyers a 40% discount off cover price and a new low shipping & handling fee of only $1.00 per book. This promotion will run into June, at which time it will be replaced with a coupon promotion to coincide with the summer convention season.

Complete information about CPM Digi-Press™ and the CPM Press 10th Anniversary sale is available on the home page at www.CPMPress.com.
