While many of us are still reeling from the sad passing of the legendary Stan Lee last November, now comes word that one of The Man’s final creative works is being released a little later this year.
Initially reported by ComicBook.com, Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light is to be released by Audible this summer. Stan co-wrote the series with Kat Rosenfield, and the project itself was created by Lee, Luke Lieberman and Ryan Silbert.
The official press release on this reads:
Audible has announced the upcoming launch of Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light, the first installment of a new connected universe of stories and characters from the Marvel genius Stan Lee, debuting on Audible in a first-of-its-kind audio storytelling event. Written by Stan Lee and Kat Rosenfield, and created by Stan Lee, Luke Lieberman and Ryan Silbert, the project was one of the comic book icon’s final collaborations before his death last year.
Available for preorder now ahead of its release on 27th June, Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light tells the story of a mysterious young woman, Nia, whose fate is intertwined with a seemingly ordinary Midwestern teenager, Cameron Ackerson, who is imbued with the power to “see” and “hear” a new reality. The audio series, which ushers in a new era of iconic characters, will also feature new Stan Lee audio recordings, giving fans access to the legend’s creative process and underscoring his focus on exploring real world events.
Not only that, but Audible has released a trailer ahead of A Trick of Light’s release:
