Pinnacle Entertainment Group Partners with Outland Entertainment: New Comics and Fiction Through Outrider Publications
In an epic team-up of superheroic proportions, Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Outland Entertainment have joined forces to bring some of PEG’s most popular IPs to life in the form of new comics and prose!
This comprehensive licensing deal is for Outland to produce fiction based on Pinnacle’s wide range of original gaming properties all under a new imprint: Outrider Publications.
Outland will be working directly with Pinnacle President Shane Lacy Hensley who shared:
“When I saw the quality of Outland’s books, I knew Outland was the perfect partner to grow our line of fiction for all our original properties.”
The license represents the first group of properties brought in by Outland’s new Licensing Director, C. Edward Sellner:
“My studio, Visionary Creative Services, previously held the license for Deadlands.” Sellner added, “But with Visionary now partnering with Outland as publisher and licensee, I know we can build an amazing line of prose and comic projects featuring the entire Savage Worlds line that will hit the highest marks of quality both Visionary and Outland are known for.”
With the license, Outland will first release the previous Deadlands graphic novels in all-new, high-quality hardcovers starting with Dead Man’s Hand, a collection of comic stories by top creators set in Shane Lacy Hensley’s Deadlands, launching April 5th on Kickstarter. New projects will be announced soon, including bringing back top creators and fan-favorite characters and introducing brand new titles set in various Savage Worlds properties.
