Pro Se Productions, LLC and Barry Reese, noted author and creator of the popular character, THE ROOK, announced earlier today that THE ROOK would join the family of characters already being published at Pro Se for at least the next two years.
Pro Se Editor in Chief Tommy Hancock issued the following statement concerning the licensing deal and plans for THE ROOK property-
“I can’t even put into words how honored and excited Pro Se Productions is to be able to add THE ROOK and all the action and wonder that Barry has infused in this universe and property to our lineup. We are not only getting a Pulp concept that people recognize and even cite as one of the best modern pulp characters yet, but we’re getting a property that has been well cared for thus far. Ron Hanna and WILD CAT Books have produced top quality work featuring The Rook and have, along with Barry’s talent, made sure THE ROOK was a viable concept with a ton of growth potential.
As for what plans there are for THE ROOK with Pro Se, its a bit early to talk about all the ideas, suggestions, and such that we have batted back and forth with Barry. We can, though, say that THE ROOK will have an increased presence on the net, with trailers and other special advertising type things being developed and designed as we speak. Of course, the books will continue, starting with Volume 6, written by Barry. At least three more novels are already planned as well and there is currently discussion about a ROOK anthology made up of other writers taking their turn with Barry’s creation. Another plan that we can discuss is to develop THE ROOK as an audiobook along with some other Pro Se properties. Will there be more, oh yes, most definitely, but you’ll have to wait like the rest of us to find out what.
A character the quality of THE ROOK and a creator of the calibre of Barry Reese can only be a positive for any company. Pro Se Productions is glad and very fortunate to be that publisher.”
