Date set for Issue #2 of comic adaptation of William Shatner's 1996 novel Man O'War

Comic book company Bluewater Productions recently announced that the second 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 March 2010. Written by CJ Henderson and illustrated by Pat Broderick 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 Issue #2:

Diplomat Benton Hawkes is fighting mad and on his way to Mars. Someone is tampering with his life, and he's determined to stop them. He just may be able to, if he can stop the shipful of space pirates out to kill him, that is.

Issue #1 of Man O'War is scheduled to be released in Feb 2010.
