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: â€œIâ€™m really touched and excited about the series because it will help energize my fatherâ€™s legacy for a new generation. Weâ€™re planning a big celebration for his 100th birthday in 2010, and this comic series fits into those plans perfectly.â€
â€œAfter 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,â€ said Bluewater President Darren Davis in a prepared statement. â€œWe 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.â€
The first issue of Vincent Price Presents will arrive in October.
