Stan Lee and MTV team up for new comics
Monday 11 October 2010
A new comic franchise,
The Seekers, will launch in 2011 as a collaborative effort between Marvel's founder Stan Lee and his POW Entertainment company with MTV, it was announced at New York Comic Con last Saturday.
The new cast of superheroes will be a digital comic series, which Lee describes as "a very high-concept plot"; "it's a story such as you never have seen before, and it spans the centuries," he told news website The Huffington Post.
MTV will seek new undiscovered talent to write and illustrate the comic series through a contest.
The Seekers will debut on the new MTV Geek website, which went online last week. The 87-year-old legendary Lee says he is excited about the digital project and also plans to turn The Seekers into a TV series or film.
MTVGeek.com will covers comics, horror, and sci-fi and gaming news, as well as comic book conventions and previews of new comic books, games and movies. MTV also plans to release its own comic book series through Act-i-vate.
