Comic News:
Cartoon Network Promotes FCBD2
By Brian Jacks


One of the top-rated networks on cable TV, Cartoon Network, has agreed to promote Free Comic Book Day 2003.

The network is placing advertising for FCBD on its popular Adult Swim website for the month of April. The ad will link to the Free Comic Book Day website so that interested browsers can learn about the event, see the comics being offered, and find a store near them.

"Comics and cartoons have long been linked in the public mind. Many of our viewers are lovers of comics, so we're happy to support this worthwhile promotion," said Dennis Adamovich, vice president of marketing for Cartoon Network. "So many of our shows originated as comics or have inspired comics themselves that it makes great sense for us to participate in Free Comic Book Day 2003."

"Adult Swim has become one of the Cartoon Network's most popular blocks of entertainment," said Diamond Marketing Communications Manager Barry Liege. "Its audience is a natural demographic for the comic book industry to reach out to, and we're glad for this opportunity to do so."

Adult Swim is Cartoon Network's block of animated programming aimed at teens and young adults. The block airs five nights a week (Sunday-Thursday) from 11 p.m.-2 a.m. (ET, PT). Sunday evenings are dedicated exclusively to comedy, including original series and popular acquisitions. Monday-Thursday offers a mix of comedy series, including Emmy-winner Futurama and Home Movies, along with popular action/anime series. Since its launch in September 2000, Adult Swim has been a strong performer, drawing mature viewers to Cartoon Network for an entertaining mix of unique original series, animated favorites and cutting-edge action.
