    Kicking off San Diego Comic-Con's Preview Night, BOOM! Studios and Stan Lee teamed up to reveal three characters you can expect to see soon in a comic shop near you. Stan was asked what was the "a-ha" moment that made him want to go forward with a partnership with BOOM!? 

    No Caption Provided

    They offered a lot of money. Seriously, I've liked the work that BOOM! has done. It sounded exciting where I could sort of be like an overall editor or buttinski. They create the books and they bring them to me. 'What do you think of this idea? How do you like this? Let's talk about the art?' So I felt as though I was back in the Bullpen again like I used to be at Marvel.

    What can we expect from BOOM! and Stan Lee?
      == TEASER ==

    No Caption Provided

    In October we can expect Soldier Zero by Paul Cornell and Javier Pina. Cornell said he was "incredibly pleased" to be working with Stan since he basically taught him how to read. (Stan's reply to this was "And I never made a penny from it"). This is the only exception Cornell has to his exclusive contract with DC. When he mentioned he had the chance to work with Stan Lee, DC said of course they'd allow it. The character is a "chap who's in a wheelchair" who gets the chance, bonded with an alien soldier, to get out of the chair to do "extraordinary superheroic stuff." The book will "talk" to wheelchair users, representing that community and also appeal to everybody.

    In November Mark Waid and Chad Hardin will give us The Traveler. Waid and Hardin have a mutual love of history and time travel. This is their chance to create a story that isn't The Terminator or The Time Machine. The Traveler is an agent sent back to save us from the Split Second Men, a group of super-powered assassins from the future who have their own idea on how they want the future to be. What makes this different is the Traveler doesn't follow the rule of "don't mess with history." He wouldn't let Kennedy get shot if he was there. He does what he feels needs to be done and worries about the repercussions later.

    No Caption Provided

    In December we can expect Starborn by Chris Roberson and Khary Randolph. The story is about a regular guy on Earth who has dreams of adventures in space and discovers he's the heir to an alien empire. He finds out that his dad was actually a bad guy and the ones he's fighting are the freedom fighters that over threw his dad. It's a generation after the good guys have won, but now the good guys aren't so good anymore.

    Stan Lee said that creating characters is fun. 

    What would I like to read? What hasn't anyone created yet?

    In a few months we'll be able to find out more on the answers to those questions.

    Stan Lee taught Paul Cornell how to read? Is there anything that man can't do?

    Stan Lee should become a teacher and start a college course on comic book history.

    It's great DC let  Paul Cornell work on this project with Stan Lee.  Just shows how much respect the guy gets in the industry.

    It sounds to me that Stan Lee isn't involved with these books hands on, but more of a creative consultant. "Like what do you think of this idea Mr. Lee?  Good or bad?" 
     
    I don't blame Paul Cornell one bit for going exclusive with DC, he had one the BEST marvel books and orchestrated wonderful story lines with Captain Britain & MI-13 and... poof!   marvel pulls the plug on him because they thought of a better stroyline with Dracula.  Go somewhere where you're respected and treated with respect and just spoken about as if you have respect. 
     
    All of these books sound interesting, The Traveller sounds the most original to me.   How mant times have you watched a TV show or movie that had time travel in it and wondered what if the time traveller didn't care? 
     
    Because of Mr. Cornell's involvement with Soldier Zero I will definitely be picking up that book as well!  I have faith that it will be a very memorable storyline!

    I LOVE Boom!  Studios.... but mainly for their horror titles such as Fall of Cthulhu, X-Isle, and Second Wave type stuff.  Not really sure if I'll enjoy the superhero stuff.

    Really looking forward to this.  I think the idea of not worrying about what you do in the past is going to produce great writing and scenarios.
