Stan Lee, Yoshiki & Todd McFarlane to unveil new comic book series

Stan Lee, Chief Creative Officer of POW!
Entertainment (OTCQB: POWN), music superstar and humanitarian Yoshiki, and
world renowned comic book artist Todd McFarlane will unveil the debut issue
of the highly anticipated comic book series Blood Red Dragon at Comic-Con
International on Thursday, July 21, 2011. Lee, McFarlane and Yoshiki, on
whom the comic¹s central superhero is based, will present the first
installment of Blood Red Dragon, which features a surprise and
first-of-its-kind publishing innovation that combines the unique skills of

established and respected comic book writer Jon Goff in a panel discussion
at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel in the Indigo room on Thursday, July
21st from 1pm-2pm, followed by press interviews from 2-3:30pm.

Blood Red Dragon Issue #0, the first in the series published by Todd
McFarlane Productions, focuses on the origin of an ancient and benevolent
force, locked in an epic battle with the dark armies of Oblivion. Creative
expression and destiny collide, as once in a generation an individual is
born with the potential to unlock the awesome might of the Blood Red Dragon,
thus channeling a power beyond comprehension and assuming the mantle of
Earth¹s protector. When agents of Oblivion discover that the key to
accessing the Blood Red Dragon's energy lays in music‹the melodic heart of
the human spirit, they launch a series of violent attacks on musicians
across the globe. As he performs in front of a large crowd during the
opening show of a massive world tour, drummer and keyboardist Yoshiki comes
face-to-face with his destiny, experiencing a transformation that will
forever change his life‹and possibly the fate of the world.

"I am extremely excited about Blood Red Dragon," said Lee. "Yoshiki's
exceptional musical abilities, visual flair and passionate humanitarianism
make him an amazing and inspiring collaborator and I think readers will
experience every bit of that in the comics."

Added Yoshiki, "Working with the one-and-only Stan Lee has been an
incredible experience for me. He is truly a genius and one of the best
storytellers living today. I'm excited with the results of our efforts and
look forward to the response from readers and music lovers around the

'Being able to collaborate with creators on a global level is always a
thrill," said McFarlane. "Working with two big names, like Yoshiki and Stan
Lee, I hope I'm able to add a little bit of my touch to a book that my,
Stan's, but most importantly Yoshiki's fans will enjoy. At the same time, I
hope this book helps introduce Yoshiki to fans that don't know him on
American shores."
