‘Airwolf’ and ‘Knight Rider’ digital comics arrive
The first issues of Lion Forge Comics’ digital revivals of 1980s TV dramas Airwolf and Knight Rider are now available for download from iVerse Media’s Comics Plus app.
Announced in July, the agreement between the St. Louis-based company and NBCUniversal Television also includes comic based on Miami Vice, Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell.
Written by David Gorden and illustrated by Koi Turnbull, Airwolf is described as a “fresh take” on the 1984-1987 espionage adventure, which centered on a high-tech military helicopter piloted by Stringfellow Hawke (played by Jan-Michael Vincent) that was sent on dangerous international missions.
Based on the David Hasselhoff action-adventure series, Knight Rider follows crime fighter Michael Knight and KITT ((Knight Industries Two Thousand), the autonomous, artificially intelligent Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with which he’s partnered. The comic is written by Geoffrey Thorne and drawn by Jason Johnson.Miami Vice, Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell are set to debut within the next two months.
