Burbank, California  --  The digital distribution unit of media company Warner Bros. has announced the launch of the debut of digital comic books for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

Created by application developer Genus, Terminator Salvation was launched for the Apple platform and allows comic book fans to flip through the pages by shaking their wrist and zoom in and out by pinching the screen.

"We see digital comics as an exciting new growth category," said Thomas Gewecke, president, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. "Consumers want to extend the print experience to their handheld media devices and the iPhone and iPod touch are ideal platforms for delivering rich, immersive, visual experiences. We expect the "Terminator Salvation" prequel to be the first of many digital comic releases over the coming year."
