Spike Lee does comic book thing

Spike Lee has attached his name and creative input to a new series of comic books that will deal with African-Americans, the ghetto and race relations.

Under the logo “Comics From Spike,” the series will be published by Dark Horse Comics, affiliated with Dark Horse Entertainment.

Deal with Dark Horse also calls for the publisher to adapt some of Lee’s films into comic book form.

Sources said Lee and his brother, Cinque Lee, will be involved in the black anthology comic book series, which will focus on urban stories and down-to-earth characters. Spike Lee will have some involvement in writing certain strips.

The anthology series “Colors in Black” will include original stories and adaptations of literary works, and will range from historical fact to science fiction.

One of the initial strips, titled “Floaters,” is a sci-fi comic about an engineered drug, neocanthaverine No. 7, that causes users to float.

There are also talks ongoing to turn some of the strips into television programs via Dark Horse Entertainment, sources said.
