Dynamite Does A Deal For Shaft And Koontz

To coincide with the Book Expo in New York where Dynamite are exhibiting, they are announcing a number of plans. All around pose authors…

Such as the rights to create new comics and graphic novels based on the Shaft novels, created by Ernest Tidyman, but to also reprint those novels and publish new ones.

For those who forget, they included novels such as Shaft Among The Jews and Shaft Has A Ball. Can't wait for the Dynamite magic touch…

And while we're talking about sexual innuendoes in names, Dynamite has also extended their deal with author Dean Koontz for his Frankenstein, Christopher Snow and Nevermore books, with new comics based on all three.

And moreover, Dynamite will also publish comics based on three new original "properties" from Koontz, exclusive for Dynamite, with at least three graphic novels to be published for each.

Koontz and shaft in one day! What could be next?

Oh yes, and neither have anything to do with the visual below…
