Mumbai:Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE), the licensing and merchandising division of Turner International India, has partnered with PepperScript Publishers to launch Cartoon Network comic books based on their classic franchises. The comics called Remix are available for pre-order starting November 3 and will be sold exclusively through Amazon.in for the year 2014.

PepperScript is appointed as the sole licensee in India to design, publish, and sell comics based on Cartoon Network’s lustrous and highly popular global franchises including Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Adventure Time. Targeted at teenagers, these comics will bring back fond memories of their childhood where these characters used to be most the important part of their TV time.

Mr. Sanchit Goel of PepperScript expressed his delight on the association with Cartoon Network Enterprises, "PepperScript Comics is proud to associate with Cartoon Network Enterprises to bring back evergreen cartoons and create nostalgia for that genre of Indian audience who once used to love these characters. Though the comic industry in India is relatively less explored as compared to that in the West, we plan to build that culture in India and hence, we chose to sell through Amazon.in so that everyone can easily enjoy this experience."

Siddharth Jain, Managing Director, South Asia, Turner International India Pvt. Ltd. elaborated on the association, “Over the years, Cartoon Network has become synonymous with being the ultimate destination for the best cartoons. Our legacy of shows and characters are so diverse that it endears to kids and adults. By partnering with PepperScript to create comic books based on our classic franchises, we hope to reconnect with teens and adults who were avid consumers of our 90’s shows.”

“We are excited to be the partner of choice for PepperScript and be the first to offer our customers an opportunity to experience the Cartoon Network comic books. Children’s books and books for young adults are some of the most popular books categories on Amazon.in. This partnership is a great opportunity for us to connect further with young readers across India and add to their joy of reading,” said Mr. Samir Kumar, Director Category Management, Amazon India
