This should be good!
MTV is joining forces with Stan Lee's POW Entertainment to create a new digital comic series titled The Seekers that will be available on the new MTV Geek website.
Lee said, "It involves superheroes, it involves a very high-concept plot, it's a story such as you never have seen before, and it spans the centuries."
He added that The Seekers is "more than just a comic. It's actually the start of a tremendous franchise" and he hopes that it will eventually turn into a TV series or even a film!
As for working in a digital format, the 87-year-old comics expert said:
"It's thrilling because it's a whole new discipline. But it's a funny thing: Whether it's electronic, whether it's digital, whether it's on paper, whether it's on a television screen, it's the story that counts. You don't let the fact that there's a different area of exhibition change the fact that you need a great story filled with action and surprises and suspense."
And the best part is that MTV will be holding a contest to find an undiscovered writer and comic artist to work on the project. The winners will get a chance to work with Lee to help develop the concept.
