IDW Announces Bloch CollectionPosted by T'Bonz - 03/06/09 at 11:06 pm
IDW Publishing has signed a new licensing agreement with the estate of writer Robert Bloch.
As reported by Newsarama, one hundred of the acclaimed writer’s stories will be developed as the Robert Block Collection, featuring comic books, graphic novels and feature entertainment. Bloch, who died in 1994, was best-known for his novel Psycho, which was later adapted into a screenplay by Joseph Stefano for the famous movie version directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh.
Star Trek fans know Bloch’s work through three original series episodes: Catspaw, What Are Little Girls Made Of? and Wolf in the Fold.
“Bloch is one of the established masters of horror, and we are really looking forward to offering his stories to existing fans and to bringing in new ones,” said Ted Adams, IDW CEO. “Having inspired so many leading writers, Bloch’s work is pivotal to the horror and science fiction genres and is a must-read for fans.”
The first Bloch project is expected to launch next year.
