Tapas to Publish “LOVE IN TIME” in New Exclusive Deal with Maze Runner’s Ki Hong Lee


Platform also announces slate of new creators from its first incubation program

Tapas Media (https://tapas.io/), the next-generation digital publishing company that specializes in bite-sized comic books and novels, is thrilled to announce an exclusive new deal to publish “Love In Time” from creator-writers Ki Hong Lee (star of Maze Runner film series and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Chris Dinh (Single By 30, Crush The Skull), and James Chen (Wendy’s LookBook, Studio71).  

Tapas Media has confirmed a two-season order of “Love In Time,” a new ‘K-Drama’ science fiction digital comic property, which will include 48 chapters and revolve around a male protagonist that features the likeness of Ki Hong Lee.  Infusing a multi-arcing love story and time travel together, the creators promise a cerebral plotline that will question what lengths we would all go to save those who we love? 

“As creators and storytellers in the film and media industries, we feel excited and privileged to partner with Tapas Media to share our passion for long-form stories and complex characters in the digital comic space,” commented Ki Hong Lee. 

Co-Creator, James Chen added, “Chris, Ki Hong and I grew up on comics and graphic novels, and so to be able to collaborate with Tapas and share our work with their audiences is a incredible honor. We can’t wait for readers to check out ‘Love In Time.’”

“With digital comics growing ever more popular on mobile and online, Tapas Media has focused on building up its imprint of established storytellers while providing a mainstream platform for new voices too.  Adding both ‘Love In Time’ and the future works from our incubation program confirms our continued commitment to develop, curate and launch engaging content on Tapas for our audiences,” said Michael Son, Editor-in-Chief of Tapas Media.
