Panasonic Releases Second Issue of Limited-Edition Toughpad Comic Book Series

Panasonic, an industry leader in reliable and innovative mobile computers since 1996, today released issue two of "Unbreakable Valor," a limited-edition comic book series featuring Panasonic Toughpad rugged tablets. The series follows the adventures of the League of Valor, an organization of superpowered heroes who rely on Panasonic enterprise technology solutions, and their IT specialist Kevin Massing. The second issue of the four-part series is available today

Like the debut issue of the series released in summer 2014, issue two of "Unbreakable Valor" was produced by a creative team well known for their work with the comic book industry's biggest publishers. They include writer Ron Marz, illustrator Lee Moder, inker Mark Pennington, colorist Michael Atiyeh and letterer Troy Peteri, with design, logo and production by Phil Smith and additional content by illustrator Bart Sears. The final two issues of the series will be released in 2015.
Issue two showcases the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1, the class-leading fully rugged 10.1-inch Windows 8.1 Pro tablet used by police officers, utility workers, servicemembers and other mobile professionals around the world. Just as real-life Panasonic customers, characters in "Unbreakable Valor" use the thin and lightweight Toughpad to perform tasks including making video calls, monitoring live surveillance camera video and remotely managing facilities systems. Unlike competitive tablets, the Toughpad FZ-G1 features a full-shift, removable battery and crucial port connectivity options - both of which help the heroes in "Unbreakable Valor," as well as the real-life heroes who use Panasonic rugged mobile computers, save the day.

First introduced in 2011, Panasonic Toughpad rugged tablets are built to connect mobile workers of all types with the data they need to stay productive and efficient, anytime and anywhere they need it. They build on the market-leading heritage of Panasonic Toughbook rugged mobile computers to offer durability and enterprise-ready feature sets beyond those of consumer-grade devices. Toughpad tablets are available running Windows and Android and come in sizes ranging from 5 to 20 inches.

Panasonic stuff is always expensive. You do get what you pay for though in the rugged department.

That said, there is absolutely no way in hell they are doing a smart marketing move by drawing a comic book series for a product that should be marketed to professionals in harsh environments. That's appealing to nerds and kids, both of whom lack money. Bad move.

Why do nerds lack money? Nerds are found in all professions and often do quite well for themselves because they're so damned smart.

I may have mispoke. I meant "nerdy kids" The kids part is the part that doesn't have money.

I wounder if we will see the better name of Panasonic like Technics although i bet they will not be made like they used to be back in the day.

I'd love to see a new Technics HDTV :P, although would not mind seeing some amps and AV's either as long as they don't bring the crappy speakers which is funny as Panasonic there systems sucked but the speakers could be top notch which is opposite what Technics.
