William Shatner has teamed with Bluewater Comics for a series of comic books based on several of his non-Star Trek novels.
As reported by Wizarduniverse.com, according to Shatner, it wasn’t difficult to move into the world of comics after writing novels. “I was asked if I was interested in doing comic books, and it occurred to me that I had three series of novels (Quest for Tomorrow, Man O’War, TekWar) that I had written, thinking visually all the time,” he explained. “I had adventure films in mind so that a person reading the book might visualize their own personal movie. And comics lend themselves to movie themes because the best comics have a singular theme as well. There’s a simplicity to the story, but simple stories can have a power, as we know from traditional storytelling. So my books and these comics fit well together.” (more…)
