Ratti Entertainment LLC has launched an Indiegogo fund raising campaign to complete the 6 issue comic book series/graphic novel entitled “Black Salt; The Last Heroes Left“. The comic book story is adapted from the original screenplay. The funds, raised on the crowd funding website Indiegogo, will be used to complete comic book issues #5, #6 and the graphic novel (all six issues combined).
Black Salt is a multifaceted trans-media franchise with strong international appeal. The story will be told across multiple media platforms, with each element making a distinct contribution to the audience’s awareness of the Black Salt brand. Black Salt is an epic thriller merging the world of modern-day espionage and political intrigue with the ancient world of martial arts.
Black Salt focuses on Samuel Tharpe who is the top counter terrorism agent in the world. For years, he has hunted down and foiled the twisted plans of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations, crime lords, warmongers and anarchists. But Sam is no ordinary agent. He was trained secretly, outside the temple walls, one of the lost arts of Shaolin by the legendary Master Yu Bai Shek. He is a master of many weapons and is able to do incredible athletic feats that border on superhuman. He is even able to generate extremely high levels of chi energy that he uses in offensive attacks.
The franchise includes, but is not limited to, the following: Black Salt collectible items, all with integrated branding opportunities: Apparel Line, Comic Books, Trading Cards, Toys, Animated Series, Video Games and Feature Film Trilogy. Ratti’s main goal is to release the comic book series and the apparel line to build the brand and establish the property as a bankable IP.
“We feel there are several small factors that set Black Salt apart from other comics. First, there is still a big demand for the action martial arts genre. This genre is a niche target market of over 100 million martial artist and enthusiasts worldwide. Secondly, our grass roots marketing campaign has already generated a buzz of more than 1.5 million hits on the website www.blacksaltfilm.com. Thirdly, Black Salt has a fully developed feature film project that could go into pre-production immediately” said Owen Ratliff, CEO of Ratti Entertainment LLC.
As customary with fund raising campaigns an assortment of perks is being offered for those who wish to support this exciting project. Find out more by visiting:
