    Luminous Books LLC, a newly formed company which will be delivering highly curated, rich-media content and periodicals to the tablet —PC market today announced that Andrew Cosby will be one of the first writer/producers to collaborate with the company on original content. The company chose to announce the collaboration prior to this year Comicon convention, because of Cosby’s highly successful work as the co-creator of Boom Comics and the Eureka Television series on the SCIFI Channel.

    “What Luminous is doing is incredibly exciting and fundamentally different from the other stuff I’ve seen in this category,” stated Andrew Cosby. “It’s the main reason I decided to work with them. I’m all about breaking new ground, and they’ve developed an imaginative new approach to the medium, one that I’m convinced will allow us to capitalize on the truly transformative nature of these devices. Using the iPad and similar tablet devices we will be collaborating on products which will engage parents and kids like never before. We’re talking about an evolutionary step forward children’s media, and I’m excited to be part of it.”

    Luminous Books formed this year in Los Angeles by Geoffrey Selzer, Pam Kerwin and Seth Jacobson, has laid out a broad and dynamic mission to “transform the reading experience.” The company will initially develop products that will focus on the youth market of 8-12 year olds. With the success of the iPad, there now exists an untapped market for inspired children’s media rich content. As part of his engagement with the company, Cosby will join the Luminous Advisory Board to help form the strategic path of the company’s future.

    Cosby, along with other content developers, are central to the Luminous Books’ strategy of creating dynamic, entertaining and educational content for kids.

    Once upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."
