Zeus Comics hit web series launches new season
September 5th, 2012 — Dallas, TX – “The Variants,” the original web television series about life behind the counter at your local comic book shop, released their first episode for season 3 today. This season is entirely funded from our successful Kickstarter campaign this summer.
The premiere episode, “Zeus Comics Worldwide,” is the first in a series of ten episodes scheduled to launch weekly for the rest of the season.
Chris Haley and Kurt Franklin of the web comic strip “Let’s Be Friends Again” (http://wwww.letsbefriendsagain) join cast members Keli Wolfe, Richard Neal, Barry Fuhrman and Ken Lowery for the release of season three.
This season’s main story arc follows Keli’s struggle to navigate the tough realities of keeping her comic shop authentic without selling out, while also fighting for her place in a world that’s traditionally seen as a boy’s club. In “Zeus Comics Worldwide,” Keli finds herself tucked into a costume to film a commercial for Zeus — and questioning her decision to go along with her new boss’s schemes for expansion.
