Aftershock Comics is back in the Entertainment Game again, this time the Publisher has announced the new merger with the Television and Film Company, Rive Gauche according to websites Newsarama and Comic Book. The Distribution Company has been around since 1994, it’s best known for distributing shows such as Dog Whisperer with Caesar Millan, Something’s Killing Me, and Homicide Hunter. Aftershock Comics has had TV and Film Development in its inception since 2015 but with this new merger, Rive Gauche will have better leverage for Aftershock Comics properties more in Comics, TV and podcasts.
Ever since the foundation of Aftershock in 2015, Rive Gauche CEO Jon Kramer was one of the comic book publisher’s founders and has served as CEO there as well. As part of this business relationship, Rive Gauche previously negotiated TV and film deals for the AfterShock comic book series The Kaiju Score and Undone by Blood.
“Today is a milestone day for both Rive Gauche and AfterShock Comics, two companies I’ve had the pleasure of building alongside amazing visionaries, colleagues, and collaborators, The significance of this strategic union cannot be understated because our ground-breaking, diverse comic IP will now have a team to support and drive its growth into TV, film, gaming, and podcasts, fueled by the development, production, and distribution of both scripted and unscripted content. Rive Gauche and I were looking for a way to reenter the scripted space because we saw an insatiable appetite with the proliferation of channels.“Jon Kramer, Rive Gauche CEO and Aftershock Comics Founder.
AfterShock Comics will now be a division of the umbrella media company that is its namesake, alongside a division for Film & TV. Currently, the staff at the comics division will remain the same, led by editor-in-chief Mike Marts and CCO/publisher Joe Pruett.
