Liquid Comics has formed a publishing partnership with filmmaker Wes Craven and producer Arnold Rifkin. It will lead to the first original graphic novel created by Craven, the man responsible for fright films like Scream, The Hills Have Eyes and A Nightmare on Elm Street. They won’t divulge the subject but plan to launch the story as a four issue comic book series starting early next year. It’ll be published in print, iPad, iPhone and other mobile and gaming devices.
“It’s an idea I’ve been dying to get out there, and working in collaboration with [Liquid’s] Sharad Devarajan and Arnold Rifkin will be the ideal win/win way to do it,” Craven said in a statement. Craven’s currently directing Scream 4 for Dimension Films.
