NBC is bringing back classic shows like Knight Rider and Miami Vice as Digital Comics
TV fans that enjoyed classic NBC programming in the ’80s and ’90s can look forward to reliving those golden days with five new digital comics that are expected to debut at Comic Con.
Some of the shows included are “Miami Vice” and “Punky Brewster,” including “Saved by the Bell” and even “Knight Rider”. All of these classic shows and more are coming back as online comic books. The creatrs are St. Louis-based Lion Forge Comics, and they will create five NBC shows as comics later on in 2013. They will be sold on almost all digital-platforms including Amazon’s Kindle Bookstore, Apple’s iBooks and Barnes & Noble’s The Nook Book Store and Kobo.
The creative team includes some very big names, including writers from the animated Teen Titans, Ben 10 and Jackie Chan Adventures series, and artists Jason Johnson, Carl Reed and Lorenzo Lizana. Chris Lucero, NBCUniversal Television’s director of Global Consumer Products Licensing, stated that the partnership was “a natural step for us as we continue to identify new ways to entertain our fans in the digital space.”
