Comic book company Bluewater Productions recently announced that the fourth and final 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 May 2010. Written by CJ Henderson and illustrated by Pat Broderick in consultation with Shatner, the storyline for the comic series is a continuation of the novel’s plot, as opposed to a direct adaptation.
