Shaq Breaks Into Comics with New Kingdom Entertainment
Formally announced today at a panel in Comic Con, Shaquille O'Neal will be breaking into comics with not just 1 but 2 new series. Alongside writer Alexander Storm, New Kingdom Entertainment will release Shaq's Hoop Fighters early next year. The series is, as of now, only going to be 4 issues but the legendary basketball player said that there could very well be a chance of it to go ongoing. Co Founder of Milestone Media, Michael Davis, has called Shaq coming to comics, and the potential readers Shaq will bring, " is the biggest thing in African American comics since Milestone."
Consider that Milestone brought us properties like Blood Syndicate, Icon, Hardware and most notably, Static, this could be a HUGE move. While details have not be released on Hoop Fighters or Shaq's other book, Clean Ops, we'll keep an eye out on details for you.
