Lion Forge Comics
Lion Forge Comics, which just two weeks ago launched digital titles based on the 1980s television dramas Air Wolf and Knight Rider, is expanding into horror with a series written by The Sixth Gun co-creator Cullen Bunn.
Described as an homage to slasher films of the ’80s and ’90s, Night Trap (which shares its name with the 1992 interactive horror video game) centers on a group of college students who rent a lake house in hopes of a weekend of fun and relaxation, only to encounter a murderous madman. “What follows is a gory maze of blood and pain,” the publisher explains, “with death as the likely escape.”
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.
Comic-Con International continued to reveal the programming schedule for San Diego as they rolled out the panels and events scheduled for Saturday, July 20.
The third day brings panels from Skybound, BOOM!, Archaia, Top Shelf, Fantagraphics, Drawn + Quarterly, Top Cow, Archie, Action Lab Entertainment, IDW and Rebellion, Dark Horse, Image Comics, Valiant and Lion Forge Comics, the makers of those Saved by the Bell and Knight Rider comics that are coming soon. DC has panels dedicated to Green Lantern, Superman’s 75th anniversary, Sandman and Batman: Year Zero, while Marvel has panels on Infinity, their video games, animation slate and their movies, which include Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (no doubt they’ll have a little more than that). In what is likely his first trip to Comic-Con, Congressman John Lewis will be on hand to talk about his book from Top Shelf, March.
You’ll also find spotlight panels on Russ Heath, Sam Kieth, Val Mayerik, Vera Brosgol, John Romita Jr., Jon Bogdanove, Jim Lee, George Perez, Gerry Conway, Frank Brunner, Roy Thomas and Paul Dini, as well as a tribute to Joe Kubert. The day wraps up with the annual CCI Masquerade.
