PLATINUM STUDIOS COMICS BACKGROUND
Rosenberg established Platinum Studios in 1997 following a successful, high-profile career as the founder of Malibu Comics, a leading independent comic book company that he sold to Marvel Comics (since acquired by The Walt Disney Company) in 1994, then becoming the second highest ranking executive at Marvel. During his time at Malibu Comics, Scott Mitchell Rosenberg’s company broke every sales and marketing record known to independent comic publishing, was the first to launch an entire comic book publishing line via television advertising and became the first line-wide digital comic publisher after innovatively adapting the Adobe Photoshop software for computer color production of comics. Scott Rosenberg and Malibu Comics have led many successful comic spin-offs into toys, television, and feature films, including signing the billion-dollar live-action film and animated television phenomenon, “Men in Black”, with Sony Pictures, which has now generated over $1.6-billion in box office alone. Platinum Studios has been indirectly financed, in part, by royalties from the “Men in Black” franchise, including each of the “Men in Black” sequels and the multiple seasons of the animated series. “Men in Black” is the number one domestic grossing buddy comedy, and the number one sci-fi comedy, of all time.
