We brought you the news that Natasha Henstridge is joining the voice cast of Stan Lee’s Time Jumper motion comic series the other day, and now the word is official directly from Disney and Stan Lee.Â The cool thing is, you don’t have to wait months for the series to launch, you just have to head over to iTunes on July 24, 2009.
The motion comic, animated comic book features, and general digital comic book distribution is getting the Stan Lee treatment on Thursday, when Lee and Disney Entertainment unveil Time Jumper on the crowd at the San Diego Comic Con.
“Time Jumper” follows Terry Dixon, a college student in possession of his late father’s time-travel invention, the Articulus. After his brother goes missing, Dixon is recruited by H.U.N.T. (Heroes United, Noble and True), a secret crime-fighting unit that sends him through time to thwart Charity Vile, leader of the criminal cartel, C.U.L.T. (Council of Unstoppable, Lethal Terrorists).
To sweeten the deal, Stan “The Man” has landed Natasha Henstridge to voice the lead female character in the series.
I’m all for mobile media fun and entertainment.Â If the publishers and companies involved in this kind of content can get the price point just right, it might do more for comics than the movies are doing now.
