The popular iPhone comic app turns â€œtalkiesâ€ while fans get a chance to add their own sound effects!
Dallas, TX â€“ September 1 st , 2011 â€“ Clown Commandos was the first iPhone comic book app to offer real sound effects. Just tap the comic book sound effect and hear everyÂ BAM! Â SPLAT! Â andÂ BOOM! Â Now, fans of the innovative series get to SOUND OFF by submitting their own sounds with the officialÂ Clown Commandos Sound Effect Contest!
The contest kicks off a couple of drastic changes to the ongoing series:
The first big change begins with Issue #6 (released today). Clown Commandos brings back â€œtalkiesâ€! Just as the silent film era evolved, so does this digital comic series by making all theÂ dialogue Â live. Now readers can hear their favorite characters deliver the lines!
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â€œWe hadÂ some Â recorded dialogue before,â€ says co-creator Scott McFadden. â€œButÂ they were sprinkled throughout the issues, more like Easter Eggs. But we had soÂ much fun making them that we decided to record dialogue for the entire series.â€
â€œBut what about past issues?â€ you may ask.
Well, that brings us to theÂ second Â big upgrade for the series. Over the next few months, past issues will be updated! They will each have their own dialogue added… and more!
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â€œWeâ€™re totally going to â€˜George Lucasâ€™ the earlier issues,â€ says co-creator MichaelÂ Anthony Steele. â€œAnd by that, we mean that weâ€™re going to update them withÂ what we know now: adding more sounds, different transitions, more storytellingÂ tricks… everything weâ€™ve learned along the way. All the elements that make ourÂ comic book app unique.â€
All of the upgrades will be… free! If youâ€™ve already purchased a particular issue, you can update that issue at no additional cost. Youâ€™ll be alerted as to the issueâ€™s updatable status in the appâ€™s main menu.

To the uninitiated, Clown Commandos is a unique, funny, and surprisingly deep new comic series. It covers a squad of heroes from an alternate universe where clowns actually evolved into elite soldiers. Now these heroes must survive in our reality where clowns are known as bumbling buffoons. A reality where the rubber nose is NOT a badge of honor.
Part G.I. Joe, part Ninja Turtles, and part Batman, these juxtaposed heroes fight crime while searching for a way home. But watch out–they take themselvesÂ very Â seriously while doing it. To them, thereâ€™s nothing funny about being a clown. And therein lies the heart of the seriesâ€™ humor. No matter what kind of life or death struggle, no matter how evil the villain, Clown Commandos think nothing of taking down the bad guys with a well-aimed rubber chicken or a pie to the face.
The innovative comic book app was one of the first to include interactive sound effects, story-driven transitions, and a series writtenÂ specifically Â for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
If youâ€™re ready to fight crime, thwart evildoers, and generally save the day (all while wearing red floppy boots), then enlist now and download the app in the Apple iTunes store here:Â http://tiny.cc/so46q
