PREVIEW: William Shatner Presents: Man 'O War #1
In the near future, friction mounts between the Earth and its Martian colony. Only diplomat Benton Hawkes stands a chance of bringing the warring factions together. There are only two problems--Hawkes hates Mars, and even if he does go, there's an assassin out to kill him before he can get there. Adapted from the acclaimed series by William Shatner, this is the sci-fi comic series to watch for!
Full preview here.
Indies: Shatner: Man O' War
Another one of these that most shops don't carry because Diamond tossed Bluewater? I used to have a battered copy of a Sci Fi book from Del Rey that has almost the same premise by a pulp era SF writer that Lester Del Rey got to come back to do a few books for Del Rey.Is Benton Hawkes also an accomplished fencer/ex Navy/beautiful wife etc.. A thousand fake donuts to the person who could come up with the name of the writer and character I'm trying to remember in connection with this Shatner announcement.
