Bluewater Productions has announced it has reached an agreement with the Price family to use the famous actor’s likeness and name in a new monthly series called Vincent Price Presents. The ongoing series will feature Price in various roles throughout the stories.

Victoria Price explains the motivation behind the collaboration: “I’m really touched and excited about the series because it will help energize my father’s legacy for a new generation. We’re planning a big celebration for his 100th birthday in 2010, and this comic series fits into those plans perfectly.”

“After the success with the Ray Harryhausen comics, we wanted to work with another film legend. Vincent Price was always at the top of everyone’s short list,” said Bluewater President Darren Davis in a prepared statement. “We find his body of work and presence on film to be really inspirational, so we wanted to recreate his legacy for a new generation of comic book readers. Not only are we developing sequels to his specific films, we are also developing gothic horror stories in the spirit of his legacy.”

The first issue of Vincent Price Presents will arrive in October.
