COMIC BOOK ARTIST TODD MCFARLANE TO UNVEIL NEW COMIC BOOK SERIES ³BLOOD RED
DRAGON² AT COMIC-CON 2011

June 27, 2011, Los Angeles, CA‹Stan Lee, Chief Creative Officer of POW!
Entertainment (OTCQB: POWN), music superstar and humanitarian Yoshiki, and
world renowned comic book artist Todd McFarlane will unveil the debut issue
of the highly anticipated comic book series Blood Red Dragon at Comic-Con
International on Thursday, July 21, 2011.  Lee, McFarlane and Yoshiki, on
whom the comic¹s central superhero is based, will present the first
installment of Blood Red Dragon, which features a surprise and
first-of-its-kind publishing innovation that combines the unique skills of
these three world-renowned artists. Lee, McFarlane, and Yoshiki will join
established and respected comic book writer Jon Goff in a panel discussion
at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel in the Indigo room on Thursday, July
21st from 1pm-2pm, followed by press interviews from 2-3:30pm.

Blood Red Dragon Issue #0, the first in the series published by Todd
McFarlane Productions, focuses on the origin of an ancient and benevolent
force, locked in an epic battle with the dark armies of Oblivion. Creative
expression and destiny collide, as once in a generation an individual is
born with the potential to unlock the awesome might of the Blood Red Dragon,
thus channeling a power beyond comprehension and assuming the mantle of
Earth¹s protector. When agents of Oblivion discover that the key to
accessing the Blood Red Dragon¹s energy lays in music‹the melodic heart of
the human spirit, they launch a series of violent attacks on musicians
across the globe.  As he performs in front of a large crowd during the
opening show of a massive world tour, drummer and keyboardist Yoshiki comes
face-to-face with his destiny, experiencing a transformation that will
forever change his life‹and possibly the fate of the world.

³I am extremely excited about Blood Red Dragon,² said Lee. ³Yoshiki¹s
exceptional musical abilities, visual flair and passionate humanitarianism
make him an amazing and inspiring collaborator and I think readers will
experience every bit of that in the comics.²

Added Yoshiki, ³Working with the one-and-only Stan Lee has been an
incredible experience for me. He is truly a genius and one of the best
storytellers living today. I¹m excited with the results of our efforts and
look forward to the response from readers and music lovers around the
world.²

³Being able to collaborate with creators on a global level is always a
thrill,² said McFarlane.  ³Working with two big names, like Yoshiki and Stan
Lee, I hope I¹m able to add a little bit of my touch to a book that my,
Stan¹s, but most importantly Yoshiki¹s fans will enjoy.  At the same time, I
hope this book helps introduce Yoshiki to fans that don¹t know him on
American shores.²

About Yoshiki

The heart of X Japan is Yoshiki – songwriter, drummer, and classically
trained pianist who also plays guitar, bass and trumpet.  Yoshiki, who has
been referred to by his first name only throughout his entire professional
career, is arguably Asia’s most influential musical artist and biggest rock
icon.  According to one industry insider, “Yoshiki is to Japan what Bono is
to the UK.”  His double-record classical album, Eternal Melody (1993), was
co-produced and arranged by the legendary George Martin, recorded with the
London Philharmonic Orchestra, and remains Japan’s biggest-selling classical
release.  For KISS My Ass:  Classic KISS Regrooved, the 1994 KISS tribute
album, Yoshiki arranged and produced “Black Diamond” as a piano concerto,
prompting Rolling Stone magazine to comment in its CD review, “the ingenuity
award must go to Yoshiki…”  Yoshiki has produced some of Japan’s most
influential bands, including Dir En Grey and Glay.  At the request of the
Japanese government in 1999, Yoshiki composed a piano concerto and performed
it with a 77-piece orchestra to celebrate the tenth year of the Emperor of
Japan’s reign.  In 2005, he was named the Music Director for the 2005 World
Expo, composed its theme song, and conducted the orchestra at the opening
ceremonies. Yoshiki also wrote the X Japan song “I.V.” for the 2007
international blockbuster horror film “Saw IV,” which played over the film’s
closing credits.

Beyond music, Yoshiki is an entrepreneur and a true renaissance man.  He has
overseen the development of a premiere line of Yoshiki jewelry, collaborated
with the California Mondavi family to develop his own wine, “Y,² the Bank of
Japan has issued a Yoshiki Visa Card and, for the first time in history, a
Hello Kitty product line was named after a person – “Yoshikitty” – that
became available in Japan in May 2010. In March 2011, Yoshiki co-produced an
East-meets-west/fashion-meets-music event, ³Asia Girls Explosion,²
showcasing top fashion brands, and debuting his own line of kimonos,
³Yoshikimono.² U.S. celebrities such as rocker Marilyn Manson and stars from
the hit television series ³90210.² Yoshiki has graced the covers of more
than 200 music, business and trade media outlets in Asia.

In July, 2010, Yoshiki launched the Yoshiki Foundation America, a California
non-profit, 501(c) public benefit corporation that has already helped
organizations including The Grammy Foundation, Make-a-Wish, and St. Vincent
Meals on Wheels.  With the devastating March 2011 earthquake in Japan, YSA
is focusing all of its efforts on Japan relief, and has partnered with the
Japan America Society of Southern California in those efforts.
