LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Effective August 1st, 2022, digital storytelling platforms, Tapas Media, Radish Fiction, and Wuxiaworld officially merged to form Tapas Entertainment. Tapas Entertainment will serve as the parent company overseeing the development and growth of all three platforms which will continue to operate individually under the continued leadership of Tapas Founder and CEO, Chang Kim.
Chang Kim shared, “This is a real moment for all of us. For Tapas, Radish, and WuxiaWorld to come together presents an invaluable opportunity for collective growth and creativity. It is an incredibly exciting time.”
The multi-platform merger comes weeks prior to the highly-anticipated Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA. Tapas, a brand sponsor of the convention, is set to attend with a highly-visible presence, hosting multiple panels, creator signings, portfolio reviews and giveaways.
Tapas VP of Content, Michael Son: “Emerald City Comic Con is known as a creator’s event so it is only natural that this is where Tapas needs to be. Our creators and readers most commonly come to us on-platform, but events like ECCC allow for us to come to the fans, meet them in person and offer memorable experiences and creative opportunities.”
Emerald City Comic Con is Thursday, August 18th to Sunday, August 21st, 2022 to be held at Washington State Convention & Trade Center.
Tapas Media will be releasing a full-access media kit following Emerald City Comic Con on Monday, August 21, 2022. Branded assets, images, panel footage and video from the convention floor amongst other downloadable materials will be made available to interested members of the press.
