Wildstorm's Lee Plugs Into "DC Comics Online Project" ...


February 24, 2006

Sony Online Entertainment and Jim Lee of DC's Wildstorm comics, will collaborate on the upcoming "DC Comics Online Project", scheduled for release on the PC, PS3, and PSP.

"This is something I'm intimately involved in and will be for the next several years," said Lee.

"Comics and games were a big part of my childhood and this really is a realization of my dreams."

Working on the project since August, Lee continues to work with artists and game designers to ensure the effort reamins true to the DC Comics source material.

"This will be the 'DCU' as we know it and it will feel current" he said.

"... one of the cool things about the DC universe is that there are multiple earths and realities and there are a lot of things you could do ..."

Lee has teamed up with comic greats Ale Garza, Carlos D'Anda, and Scott Iwahashi who will move a mixture of styles into the game's overall artistic look.

"EverQuest"'s Chris Cao and Shawn Lord will handle the overall game design.
