Following the Dead Man
"Dead Man began as a TV series idea that Bill Rabkin & I started pitching around Hollywood over 20 years ago," Lee wrote on his blog, A Writer's life. "It suddenly occurred to me that it would be make a kick-ass series of books...and we already had the story lines for twelve of'em."
And that's the concept that the two men came up with - they would employ a series of writers to pen books in the series, and create a series of books, very much like the paperback original series of years gone by. Man I miss those days, but now in a sense, thanks to the possibilities of the eBook market, those days are back.
The reviews of the series have been hugely positive and I can say, after reading the first book in the series, that The Dead Man is looking at having a lively existence.
Expect a Dead Man feature on the Archive very soon.
