'80s TV Shows Getting Comic Book Treatment

'80s TV Shows Getting Comic Book Treatment

(AP) PHILADELPHIA–“Punky Brewster” and the kids from “Saved by the Bell” are returning to the small screen through digital comic books. So, too, are “Knight Rider,” “Airwolf” and “Miami Vice.”

Lion Forge Comics and NBC Universal said Tuesday they partnered to develop, write, illustrate and publish digital comics based on those shows from the 1980s and 1990s, bringing new stories for characters like Crocket and Tubbs as well as Kit and Screech.

The comics are set to be released later this year through iTunes, Amazon’s Kindle Bookstore, Barnes & Nobles’ Nook store and Kobo.

The NBC Universal-owned shows are the latest in a growing push that has seen other TV properties extend their stories in comics, most recently “The X-Files” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
