Stan Lee Partners with Archie
Stan Lee, the famous creator of so many comic book characters we love, is teaming up with Archie Comics and A Square Entertainment to start a new line of print and digital comics.
The first series will be Super Seven which will be written by Tom Defalco with art by Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante and will include Stan Lee himself as a character:
SUPER SEVEN… [is] the story about seven aliens who find themselves stranded on planet Earth after their spaceship crashes, only to be befriended by none other than Lee himself. Taking them under his care, Lee becomes their leader and enables them to resume their lives as superheroes on earth.
A Square Entertainment Co-Founder and CEO Andy Heyward’s praised the Godfather of Marvel:
A2 Entertainment is humbled and honored to be collaborating with such a legendary figure in the entertainment industry. Stan Lee has been delivering groundbreaking entertainment to consumers for decades and we couldn’t be more excited to venture into the digital space together and introduce him to a new generation of fans.
Super Seven will be going the multimedia route and be available through digital, print and broadcast.
