We always knew Shaq liked comics and it predated his turn as Steel on the big screen. Looks like he’s going to publish them. Come to find out, Shaq has two comics lined up for the “Shaq Comic Book Company.” This venture is a partnership between Shaq Entertainment and New Kingdom Entertainment. New Kingdom operates The Fanboy’s Guide website.
If you click the gallery button on the New Kingdom site, you’ll see some sample pages for a couple comics: “Killer of Men” and “Shoot It,” so apparently they have a small press wing.
Shaq’s comics will be “Hoop Fighters” and “Clean Ops.”
There’s a trailer for them on YouTube.
Details are a little sketchy right now, but it looks like another celebrity has joined the fray.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
