Finally iTunes!!!

So after countless back and froth issues and a lot of holding our breath, Xmoor Studios is happy to announce that:
GALTOW IS NOW ON iTunes!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

We are smiling as we make the leap to digital seeing as how the market and Diamond have made it harder for an independent publisher to survive in this industry, we knew that the download applications would be the only way to keep our goals viable. It’s with a sigh of relief and an accumulation of several months but we are now moving forwards.

So here’s the link to GALTOW the DIRECTOR’S cut:

itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZ…

For those of you who have our black and white original first book we offer you a full color version along with new dialogue and some rearrangement of sequences... it reads slightly different and may reveal a few things to those who read the original book. To those others who have never read Galtow… welcome aboard and enjoy the adventures of our heroes Jiya, Keylon and Wu as they navigate a gladiatorial world where only the strongest will survive. We hope you like our comic and look forward to GALTOW Director’s Cut Book #2:
Welcome to the Age of Galtow!

A fanboys wet dream...

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

XMOOR STUDIOS has been low key on the information sites as Eric and I have been working tirelessly to develop our Intellectual Properties and take the next steps towards getting a bigger audience to embrace our books. XMOOR STUDIOS will be at this February’s New York Comic Con (6th - 8th), at BOOTH # 948, sharing a space with our traveling partner the fantastic illustrator Steven Harris creator of the BrotherHood of the Fringe, and artist for countless fan fave books for Marvel, DC, Image and other publishers. We will also be there with our new partners in crime SHIMMER MEDIA who are developing a sensational teaser trailer for GALTOW using 3d CGI effects. Here’s a taste of what will be seen at the show:

We will also debut The GALTOW trade edition at the show…Issues #1 & #2 have been colored and given a whole new attitude. We have also included issues #3 and the unreleased GALTOW #4, along with some other goodies and pinups!

Hello  everyone

As I have said before Xmoor Studios is trying to make moves for the New Year! this is a crazy year for Eric and I as we believe it's time to take Xmoor's  I.P. concepts to another level. So here's One of the goals we have accomplished so far this year:
Xmoor Studios has signed a Film and Gaming development agreement with a Hollywood Producer/Director!
This is a deal that will develop a live action film for our flagship series GALTOW. Slowly but surely we have been putting into place and contacting people who can help us to achieve this goal.

If you want to know a little more please go to our site at:

Issue #1 is complete and will be solicited very soon and it will have some preview pages of Steve's upcoming work on the next book. For those of you not familiar with Steven's work DC Comics has just released the 10 collected issues of Aztek - The Ultimate Man - written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by N. Steven Harris. I picked up my signed copy (see ECBACC con swagg image below) at the East Coast Age of Black Comics Convention in Philly and can't wait to read it.

Comic Book letter wanted....

Wed Apr 30, 2008, 8:16 AM
Needs to be able to match this type of lettering style (see 3 pages from Galtow # 3):

www.comics2film.com/index.php?…

Note us a link to your samples and your page rate. It's okay if you are a entry level letterer as long as can match the look and are fast. So minimal experience is okay. Sooner is better as we have a deadline we'd like to meet. We will send you a few actual lettered sample pages from a older book for you to match...

Must be over 18.
Fast.
Have the right fonts.
Can do a few sound FX.
Take direction well.
Send your page rate - very important.

.................NOTE on the Draw Galtow prizes.......................

2nd and 3rd place prizes HAVE BEEN SHIPPED to Gavinslayer (gavinslayer.deviantart.com/) and Valiantonov (valiantonov.deviantart.com/)

Congrats guys and thank you for taking the time to join our first art contest with some awesome artwork!
