Not content to rest on his laurels, William Shatner is launching his own comic-book imprint—and he’s persuaded Marvel‘s Stan Lee to write something for it.

Shatner has published numerous books in the past, from memoirs to Star Trek tie-in novels to his not-particularly-acclaimed science-fiction series TekWar. Now he’s decided to start a comic-book imprint called Shatner Singularity, working with LNL Partners, a “cinematic graphic novel” publisher that previously adapted Shatner’s novel Man o’ War into an animated motion comic.

Shatner Singularity will mostly release work by Shatner himself, but comics legend and master of self-promotion Stan Lee is onboard for at least one book.

The imprint’s full lineup will be announced at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo next month. As ever, life is good for an aging superstar of geek culture.
