Nashville, Tenn. (July 18, 2016) – B&H Kids is excited to announce that two complete episodes of BiblemanTM, the Animated Adventure series will premiere at ComicCon International 2016 in San Diego, California July 21-24. In addition, the first Bibleman trailer is now available on the Bibleman Facebook page and new website, which launched today (www.bibleman.com).
Racing toward the October 2016 release, the new animated Bibleman franchise will feature multiple products including animated DVDs, comics, books, building block sets, mini-figures, and Bibleman’s sword.
Dan Lynch, publisher for B&H Kids, will introduce the episodes at the Christian Comics Arts panels during ComicCon 2016.
“I am looking forward to everyone being able to see the first glimpses of the new series,” Lynch said. “It’s been years in the making and we believe old and new Bibleman fans will be thrilled. The new series pays homage to the past and at the same time introduces many new elements, storylines and of course, villains. Kids will love it and we felt ComicCon, being full of ‘big kids,’ is the perfect place to show an episode for the first time.”
At last year’s ComicCon event, B&H Kids announced the re-launch of the long-standing and hugely popular Bibleman brand. Since then, B&H has been revealing new details about the re-launch, including the all-new logo, initial character images, and the first products scheduled for an October 15th publishing date.
The Bibleman brand began in 1995 from Pamplin Entertainment and was primarily a series comprised of live-action videos with other branded books and toys. The brand was later sold to Thomas Nelson, who produced additional live action videos, and was then acquired by B&H Kids in the fall of 2013.
B&H is partnering with P23 Entertainment Inc. to produce 26 episodes of Bibleman: The Animated Adventures.
“We are very excited about the rebranding the iconic franchise,” said Cliff McDowell, president of P23 Entertainment. “This is something that I wanted to produce for over eight years. Taking it into the animation world only made the best creative sense, and the ministry impact will last for generations to come as animation is timeless.”
