Zaldiva Partners with
Heske Horror on BONE CHILLER
Distribution Deal Includes Limited
Time Promotions for Zaldiva Customers
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 09, 2009 – Zaldiva, Inc. (OTCBB:ZLDV), (Xetra/Frankfurt
Exchange: UZ8), and a leader in Pop Culture collectibles, comic
books, memorabilia and online auctions headquartered in Fort Lauderdale,
Florida today announced they have signed a distribution agreement with Heske
Horror, an indie comic creator, to sell its award-winning horror anthology BONE
CHILLER. This deal continues Zaldiva’s philosophy of forming relationships with
emerging indie comic creators to provide fresh content to its customers, and
build its brand as the leading indie comic store with an eye for recognizing
quality titles before they go mainstream.
"This is the first of several distribution agreements we hope to forge with
Heske Horror," says Nicole Leigh, Zaldiva’s President. "This is a budding comic
creator whose titles have already demonstrated an ability to garner awards,
critical praise, and even get made into films." R.M. Heske, the principal
behind Heske Horror, has several comic titles produced and two screenplays
slated for film development. One title in BONE CHILLER, "The Waiting Room," has
already been adapted as a short film ("Waiting") which stars
Richard Schiff and Izabella Miko. The 2007 short film won an award for Best
Cinematography at the Beverly Hills Short Film Festival.
Under the arrangement, Zaldiva customers will have exclusive access to special collector
promotions for a limited time, including:
A free signed copy of THE NIGHT PROJECTIONIST (issue one), written
by Heske and published by Studio 407, included with the first 30 orders; and
copies of BONE CHILLER will be autographed by Heske, with a complimentary "Cold
Blooded Chillers" book mark.
BONE CHILLER is a "best of" anthology of Heske Horror’s critically
acclaimed COLD BLOODED CHILLERS: Tales of
Suburban Murder and Malice. Winner of a Bronze medal for "Outstanding
Horror" at the 2009 Independent Publisher Book Awards, this 140-page trade
paperback features 8 great scares and 2 chilling extras. The Foreward to the
book is written by Rod Lott, creator of the literary review site Bookgasm.com,
managing editor of Hitch Magazine: The
Journal of Pop Culture Absurdity, and contributing writer to the GRAPHICS
CLASSICS comic series. Graphic tales were illustrated by outstanding
international indie comic artists such as Zeu (Charlatan, Project Elohim), Reno Maniquis (Maskarado, Wall of Angels), and Adam Swiecki (The Reborn Legends).
Jay Katz, owner of InvestComics.com, believes both the BONE
CHILLER anthology and NIGHT PROJECTIONIST comic could be "sleeper" collectible
investments. "In just one year, Heske Horror has been building fans among
critics and collectors, and it has impressive titles in the queue," says Mr.
Katz. "THE NIGHT PROJECTIONIST comic was somewhat of a victim of Diamond’s
increased sales thresholds a year ago, but even though the book went straight
to OGN (it will release in Q1 2010), it has been optioned for film by Myriad
Pictures and could go up in value if the film gets made and is popular." In
fact, a review by none other than Fangoria
magazine cited "This could be the next 30
Days of Night!"
