Heads up Geeks!
In case you haven’t heard, we’ve announced the launch of MTV Comics, our inaugural line up of titles, a partnership with Act-i-vate, and our first animated series by an animation legend at the MTV Geek panel this weekend at the New York Comic Con.
First up is Stan Lee’s The Seekers, which will launch in 2011. Yes, that Stan Lee. Details on the story are going to be released next year as we hold our first talent contest to discover the next great artist and writer who will take Stan’s vision and bring it to life. That’s all we can say for now, but we’ll have an announcement here when the contest launches!
Check out the line-up!

As if that wasn’t enough, we announced a new animated series by 2-time Oscar nominated indie god (that’s exactly what Beavis and Butt-head creator Mike Judge calls him) Bill Plympton! In 2011 Bill will bring Tiffany the Whale to MTV Geek as a series of animated shorts.
