Arcana and Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment to Produce The Unknowns

Arcana is teaming up with POW! Entertainment, LLC for the production and international distribution of The Unknowns, a new comic book universe.

In a release Sean Patrick O’Reilly, CEO of Arcana, said:

Stan Lee was there when Arcana published our first comic book just over ten years ago.  To be working with him on a new intellectual property and creating a new universe has truly been a dream come true!

Chris “Doc” Wyatt has been at the creative helm at the project.

In the release Wyatt said:

Working with Stan and Sean has been fantastic. The Unknowns is Ben Ten meets Men in Black with a rock and roll soundtrack.

The story focuses on two average teens who help alien protectors disguise themselves as a touring rock group in order to take out undercover cells of invaders.

Stan Lee in the release said:

The Unknowns is an idea I’ve had for a while and bringing these characters to life with Arcana and Sean is exciting.  He’s created his own comic book character army and he’s kind of a Canadian version of me.

Gill Champion, President, CEO and Director, POW! Entertainment by saying:

Working with Arcana is giving us the opportunity to bring new characters to the Canadian market while expanding POW! Entertainment’s worldwide franchise into a new territory.
