20 Jul, 2006 By: HM Editorial Staff

SANTA ANA, Calif. — Agent DVD, a new consumer magazine created especially for DVD enthusiasts, makes its debut at the annual Comic-Con International July 20-23 in San Diego in print and digital editions — as well as a Web site, www.AgentDVDonline.com.

Agent DVD dives into the hottest movies coming to DVD, offering interviews and inside news from the stars, directors and DVD producers.

Created by Home Media Retailing magazine and Questex Media, the debut issue of Agent DVD includes interviews with Superman Returns director Bryan Singer, director Brett Ratner and the stars of X-Men: The Last Stand, as well as chats with pop-culture icons such as “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer Ron Moore, and up-and-comers such as Hostel director Eli Roth and Underworld director Len Wiseman.

The inaugural issue comes with five different collectible covers and also includes feature articles on the most popular people and DVD titles from the horror, animation and sci-fi/fantasy genres. Agent DVD is also packed with the latest DVD release information for fans of comic book-themed adventures, sci-fi, horror and fantasy movies and TV shows.

Agent DVD will be available to Comic-Con attendees at no charge at the Tower Records booth and at several other major studio exhibit booths on the show floor. A free digital edition, as well as a live Web site updated throughout the show, can be found at www.AgentDVDonline.com.

“Agent DVD gives an undercover look at the passionate people making movies of the comic books that they loved as kids,” said Kevin Cassidy, EVP of retail stores for Tower Records. “Tower Records is thrilled to partner with Home Media Retailing as the exclusive retail distributor of Agent DVD, which we'll be handing out at the Tower Records booth at this year's Comic-Con International.”

“People love filmed entertainment having to do with comics and animation, and that gives us the ideal opportunity to enter the consumer market,” said Don Rosenberg, publisher of Home Media Retailing and head of Questex Media's entertainment group. “Our 27 years of experience in publishing and our close relationship with Hollywood perfectly positions us to create a unique and meaningful product.”
