Los Angeles, Calif. USA,  January 29th, 2015

Meltdown Comics is excited to announce our newest in-store addition:
the Open Intellectual Property (IP) Wall!

Due to a mounting excitement and demand for comic book adaptations into all forms of media—film and television in particular—Producers and writers are constantly on the lookout for the next hot adaptation. Meltdown receives requests for Open IP almost every day, and we’ve decided to make it easier for everyone involved by keeping new, exciting, and adaptable content all in one place!
We would like to extend our offer for your open IP properties to be better displayed on our wall. If you’re a publisher, just send us and email to staff@meltcomics.com with:
1) A list of the open IP properties you want showcased;
2) A corresponding list with the creators’ names, listing their previous works (to better draw association for the clientele).
Anything already optioned or ordered from a network will not be displayed.
This will be a spot for the newest creators and publishers to have their stories perused by the best in Hollywood.

“Meltdown has become the established nexus between comics and Hollywood.  With this newly dedicated section for Open Intellectual Properties, they are shortening the gap between industry professionals and independent creators.  This is why I am a regular here, because Meltdown knows how to serve its community.”  -Mike Le, screenwriter & producer
