A big thanks from everyone at MTV to Stan Lee for breaking that virtual bottle of champagne on the bow of our maiden voyage into Geekdom!
"Heads up True Believers,
This is Stan Lee, you know, the comic book guy! Well, if you still can’t place me, here’s a clue: think Spider-Man, Iron Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four. Is that enough of a hint? But I don’t want to talk about me right now. I’ve got something even wilder and more exciting to tell you about, I want to talk about MTV. Why? Because for starters, I really dig how MTV has become a global brand of pop culture, just like my comics! And it’s a leader in television, the internet, mobile, and everything else that’s cool! And here’s the far out part: the geniuses at MTV are finally entering the field I love the most. You guessed it, comics!
Now, I managed to get some inside information on what they’re planning, and you know what? Its mind-boggling. Those genius geeks are gonna boggle your brains and stretch your imagination like never before. In fact, the excitement at MTV brings back memories of my early days at Marvel where we insisted on doing things that had never been done before.
Now today, there are a zillion new ways to tell stories and MTV is gonna blow your socks off with what they’ve got planned. You know, remember, the future of comic books is tied to the digital age. You can’t begin to imagine what lies ahead for comics without factoring in all the new technology and how it will get fans worldwide as excited as I am to see what’s next.
In the meantime, keep it right here for the latest in comics, games, toys, and much, much more! And now a new golden age of comics in a digital age could mean digital gold. I can hardly imagine where its going, but wherever it leads sit back with me and enjoy the ride. You know why? It’s gonna be a wild one!
