Release date set for comic book adaptation of William Shatner's 1996 novel Man O'War

Comic book company Bluewater Productions announced that the first issue of Man O’War, its adaptation of the eponymous 1996 science fiction novel by Star Trek actor and bestselling author William Shatner, will be released in February 2010. Written by CJ Henderson in consultation with Shatner, the storyline for the comic series will be a continuation of the established plot in the novel, as opposed to a direct adaptation. Here’s how Bluewater describes the issue:

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's 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.

The artwork and cover art for Man O’War was created by Pat Broderick.
