Win a Copy of Stan Lee’s New Book, The Zodiac Legacy
Stan Lee has leant his name to a new series project. This time it’s prose, co-written with (former Helix editor) Stuart Moore. The Zodiac Legacy is a new young adult novel, intended to start a series, about Steven Lee, a young man who stumbles into a mystical ceremony. A powerful man, full of hubris, is trying to take all the powers of the Chinese Zodiac into himself, but Steven winds up with the Tiger power, based on his birth sign. Of course, there’s a group working together to try and stop the greedy villain, and plenty of action.
Book one, Convergence, launched last month with illustrations by Andie Tong (Spectacular Spider-Man UK, The Batman Strikes!). Here are some samples:
And Stan Lee narrates this book trailer, explaining the premise:
Based on the chapters I’ve read so far, the series emphasizes world-spanning adventure familiar to superhero fans over deep characterization, but that makes for an adrenaline-driven read.
If you’d like to see the book for yourself, Disney Enterprises has made it possible for me to give away a prize pack consisting of the book and a sheet of custom Zodiac Legacy temporary tattoos. To enter the contest, leave a comment below telling me your zodiac sign and how you feel about it. For example, I’m a Rooster, which used to be the Cock, which never made me happy.
If you need to figure out your sign, and you don’t have a Chinese restaurant placement handy, you can visit the book’s website or have Stan Lee tell you about it here:
