Stan Lee, Yoshiki, & Todd McFarlane to Unveil ‘Blood Red Dragon’ Comic at Comic-Con 2011

The first issue of the comic book series Blood Red Dragon will be unveiled at Comic-Con International on Thursday, July 21st. This project features the collaborative efforts of Spider-Man comics creator Stan Lee, Japanese rock star Yoshiki (of the band X Japan), and Spawn comics creator Todd McFarlane.

GalleyCat reported back in October 201o when Lee and Yoshiki personally announced this project at New York Comic Con. Lee explained that the project would be a “motion comic,” which he described as “more than a comic, but less than an animated film. It’s somewhere in between.” The series is being published by Todd McFarlane Productions.

Here’s more from the release: “[The comic] focuses on the origin of an ancient and benevolent force, locked in an epic battle with the dark armies of Oblivion. Creative expression and destiny collide, as once in a generation an individual is born with the potential to unlock the awesome might of the Blood Red Dragon, thus channeling a power beyond comprehension and assuming the mantle of Earth’s protector.”
