Virgin Forms Virgin Comics & Virgin Animation
Gotham Chopra added, "We are a generation whose identities are cut and pasted from cultural elements of east and west. Virgin Comics and Virgin Animation is our home where we get a chance to tell the new planetary stories that define us. We intend to work with the world's greatest storytellers, both famous and first-timers. Our Maverick and Director's Cut lines are specifically intended to attract innovative thinkers and artists to comics and provide them a platform to create their stories in a medium akin to a movie with an unlimited budget."
As part of the launch of the Director's Cut line, Virgin Comics will collaborate with globally acclaimed filmmaker, John Woo, to create an original comicbook property. Virgin Comics intends to launch its first original comic book titles in mid-2006 and will simultaneously be exploring partnerships for animation development.
