As you may or may not know, MTV Comics, in collaboration with (the man, the myth, the legend) Stan Lee announced that they’d be publishing his new comic called THE SEEKERS.
Why is this big news? Because they’ve launched a contest to one up-and-coming artist and one up-and-coming writer to create the book! Submissions opened up about a month ago and will go through the end of September. Ultimately, Stan Lee will hand select the creative team who will then produce THE SEEKERS comic and bring it to life.
Why is this information on my website?
Because I entered the contest!
Based off of a treatment written by Stan himself, artists were asked to draw 5 pages of sequential art that showed one of the scenes described and writers produced a 10 page script based off the characters and story provided. In addition to the 10 page script (which was a real blast to write) I also turned in a 2 page treatment outlining the beats of the series over the course of 110 pages (5 issues).
At the end of September, the top 15 artists and writers will have their work displayed on the MTV website and public voting begins! Once the top 5 finalists in each category have been narrowed down, Stan himself will pick the winners. They’ll then have the opportunity to meet with him at the New York Comic Con to hash out the details of the book.
Sounds awesome, right?
Wish me luck!
