“Showcasing Shatner at his best, William Shatner’s Man O War Cinematic Graphic Novel’ features humanistic storytelling based on his more than 50 years of performance and his lifetime of understanding power and people,” said LNL Partners co-owner Mariano Nicieza. “With the surge of popularity for mobile devices, and with new devices in the pipeline, he believes the time is ripe to introduce a new product channel into the market – and we are thrilled to be part of his vision.”

Each episode of Man O’ War runs approximately nine minutes and there are eight episodes per season. Season one is complete and debuted at San Diego’s Comic Con July 9-12, 2015. Season two will be released at the New York Comic Con, October 8-11, 2015.
