IDW Publishing is bringing the hit YouTube Premium show Cobra Kai to comics with a four-issue mini-series titled Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues. Written by Denton J. Tipton and illustrated by Kagan McLeod, the comic will see The Karate Kid movie in a whole new light in this retelling through the eyes of Johnny Lawrence, two-time All Valley Tournament champion.
“I saw The Karate Kid for the first time during a lock-in at the Y. The skeleton costumes captured my attention, while the Miyagi-isms pulled me into the story. And like everyone else at the time, I caught Karate Kid fever. Fast-forward 35 years, and being just a small part of the franchise has made me feel young and inspired all over again,” says Tipton.
Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues is set to release October 2019.
