THUNDERCATS is Getting a New Comic Series From Warner Bros. and Dynamite

Dynamite and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products have announced that they are partnering up to release a range of comic books and graphic novels inspired by some of Warner’s most popular franchises and characters.

The first thing they will release under the partnership is a ThunderCats comic book series, which comes from writer Declan Shalvey (Alien, Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan, Old Dog) and she will be joined by fan-favorite artist Drew Moss (Gargoyles: Dark Ages, Vampirella/Red Sonja, Copperhead), and letterer Jeff Eckleberry.

The ThunderCats series “aims to be a refreshing yet timeless take on the classic mythos and characters, pulling from Shalvey’s ability to weave complex narratives alongside the striking visuals from Moss. The initial storyline is currently planned to delve into the earliest days on Third Earth, the world that the ThunderCats are forced to survive on after escaping their original home. With an origin approach in part, the title will explore untold histories and new challenges for Lion-O, Cheetara, and the rest of the group.”

It’s explained that “Shalvey will dig deeper into the iconic character relationships and push further on the science fiction underpinnings, while Moss is set to portray the wondrous environments of Third Earth and the visually engaging action set pieces. With Lion-O at the center, following his journey toward becoming a worthy leader, the team will work together, combining their diverse talents, attitudes and learning about the magical power of the Eye of Thundera. But will they be able to accomplish these goals and growth, with Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living’s eyes set on them? With the franchise’s trademark blend of action, drama, and touches of science fiction, fans will not want to miss this all-new approach.”

While fans have been waiting for a ThunderCats movie to be made for years, this comic, which sounds great, will have to tide us over.

Other comics that will be developed include The Flintstones, The Powerpuff Girls, Space Ghost, Jonny Quest, The Wizard of Oz, We Bare Bears, and more.

Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher, said in a statement: “Warner Bros. has been at the heart of entertainment in America and across the world for an incredible hundred years, and home to so many beloved stories and franchises. We’re incredibly excited to bring many of them with the biggest and most passionate fanbases back to comics or for the first time, as we work with WBD and wonderful creators to bring all-new stories to the fans!”
