Dark Horse Comics and Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, announced late last week, plans to produce a series of graphic novels based on the upcoming animated action series, Mysticons.
The series is currently slated to premiere on Nickelodeon in the U.S. this summer and on Corus’ TELETOON network in Canada this fall. Sean Jara is the series’ creator, writer, and executive story editor. The story will follow four girls, as they are summoned to become the legendary heroes, called Mysticons.
“We are incredibly excited to bring on Dark Horse as our graphic novel partner for Mysticons,” said Pam Westman, Head, Nelvana Enterprises. “Mysticons is a contemporary, genre-defining series that shows girls the strength, power, and courage they already have from within. Comics and graphic novels have continually showcased dynamic and confident female characters, and we look forward to continuing the Mysticons’ adventures in this rich and powerful way of storytelling.”
The graphic novels for the series are set for release in late summer 2018. Dark Horse Comics‘ Shantel LaRocque will act as editor for the series.
“I am delighted to be working on the Mysticons project with Nelvana as they lead into this new genre,” said Shantel LaRocque, Associate Editor, Dark Horse Comics. “We look forward to bringing these breakthrough characters to life with new stories for Mysticons fans.”
