SAN DIEGO - Comic book legend Stan
Lee on Friday revealed details of his new web-based, digital
series "The Seekers," saying it is set in modern times on an
Earth in danger of imminent destruction.
Describing his upcoming new venture with MTV as "a real
epic story", Lee told Reuters that "Seekers" will have multiple
characters and he hopes it will move from the Internet to TV,
movies and videogames.
"It's a real epic story," said Lee, ahead of a detailed
presentation of the new comic book series on Saturday at
"One of the blurbs I wrote for it says, 'We present these
incidents that you're about to witness as a work of fiction in
order to avoid worldwide apprehension and panic.' It has to do
really with the state of the Earth and all the population on
it," he added.
"The Seekers" will launch in early 2012 as a free digital
comic series on the MTV Geek
website and is expected to
eventually become a print comic.
