Digital comics company Panelfly has partnered with former executives at Sony, AOL, and Hulu to form new digital media company SYN — and NOT a partnership with companies themselves. Founder and CEO of SYN Kirt Mcmaster e-mailed us to correct the information reported earlier from the Digital Comics Now panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2010.
Panelfly will dissolve into SYN, which aims to produce for movies, television shows, animation, and much more in addition to comic books, according to McMaster, who gave us the following statement: “[SYN is] focused on the ‘fantastic’ that will redefine this space across all platforms — with a focus on supermobile extending into the digital home experience.”
An iPad app produced by SYN featuring the Panelfly skeletal software was said to be released soon.
McMaster said details concerning various partnerships and investors would be released in the coming months. For now the company has a temporary holding page up (synner.net) that eludes to a 2011 launch and offers to send you e-mail notifications when new developments become available.
