Following last summer’s “William Shatner’s Man O’ War” graphic novel, LNL Partners has teamed with Shatner to launch an imprint called Shatner Singularity after the “Star Trek” alum. The imprint will release Stan Lee’s latest graphic novel as well as publish additional works authored by Shatner himself. More details will be announced at Comikaze Expo 2015 during a panel which takes place on Sunday, November 1.
“We are thrilled to unveil the Shatner Singularity imprint and its debut releases from William Shatner and Stan Lee at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo. The team at LNL Partners has enjoyed the privilege of working directly with these two legendary industry icons to deliver to fans worldwide Cinematic Graphic Novels, a new and innovative way to enjoy comic book entertainment. Publishing Stan Lee and his newest literary work under the imprint adds yet another level of tremendous excitement to the Shatner Singularity brand,” LNL Partners Co-Owner Mariano Nicieza said in a statement.
Lee is known for his work at Marvel Comics, where he co-created many of the publisher’s most popular characters, including the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and Spider-Man. He has also appeared in many films based on his properties, from “X-Men” to “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Shatner played Captain James T. Kirk on “Star Trek: The Original Series” and is, himself, a fan of pop culture across the spectrum.
Comikaze Expo 2015 will take place in Los Angeles from October 30 to November 1.
