Sorry, we mean graphic novel series. Mazda is parterning with Top Cow Comics on a new series of colorful books that use more pictures than words to tell a story (what are they called again?). The series, dubbed "Revved" β€” a marketing vehicle dreamed up by LA's Spacedog agency β€” features a Mazda RX-8 in its plotline. The first part of the series can be viewed (and read) online, though the books will premiere at this year's Comic-Con International convention. Word is, a related TV series from Fox Television Studios is in the works. Talk about product placement and media synergies β€” this is more like media-product nuclear fission.
