Robot Media, who have brought us titles like ‘Robot 13’ are now bringing ‘The Wormwood Saga’ to the ipad!
With big visuals and a unique style that Robot Media bring to the table, The Wormwood Saga is one of the new breed of digital comics which veer away from ‘normal’ layouts!
Introducing The Wormworld Saga iPad App by renowned digital artist Daniel Lieske and mobile publisher Robot Media. Discover the breathtaking fantasy world that enchanted a million readers already!
The Wormworld SagaÂ is an episodic graphic novel designed for tablets devices, from the mind of acclaimed illustratorÂ Daniel Lieske. Unlike traditional graphic novels, each chapter is digitally painted on a seemingly infinite canvas, providing an immersive reading experience that draws the reader right into a fully realized fantasy world.
The Wormworld Saga follows the life and adventures of Jonas Berg, who at a young age enters a parallel world through a forgotten painting in a dusty attic.
â€œInside the Wormworld Jonas finds indescribable wonders, new friend, love and hate, good and evil and he reveals his family legacy, which makes him become a central figure in an epic conflict that shakes the Wormworld and drives it to the brink of its destructionâ€ says creator Daniel Lieske.
Produced by digital publisherÂ Robot Media, the Wormworld Saga app finally allows readers to experience Lieskeâ€™s saga the way it was meant to be read: the app provides better image quality and scrolling performance than theÂ web version, and uses a seamless touch interface for reading.
Keeping with the spirit of the web edition, the app itself and the main narrative are available to everyone for free. For those who want to support the continued development of the saga, a paid Collectorâ€™s Edition is also available.
The Collectorâ€™s Edition includes behind-the-scenes commentary by the author and an exclusive digital artbook that provides additional insight about the creative process. The Collectorâ€™s Edition also allows to view the painted artwork without dialogue, and share any scene through Facebook, Twitter and email.
â€œWe see the Collectorâ€™s Edition as a window into the making of a modern classic. Our goal is to provide Daniel an outlet where his far-reaching vision can be shared with fans of the Wormworld in the clearest way possible. We can only hope that the app is big enough to contain it all!â€ says Robot Mediaâ€™s Head RobotHermes Pique.
The Wormworld SagaÂ iPadÂ app is now available for free in theÂ iTunes App Store. The graphic novel is included in English, Spanish, German and French. An Android tablet version is currently in development.

About Daniel Lieske

With the launch of the app, Lieske setsÂ his foot into independent digital publishing and hopes to raise a new benchmark for digitalÂ graphic novels and serve as inspiration for other independent creators.
