Image Comics and content company Skybound – which is also responsible for titles including The Walking Dead and Invincible – will publish the first series from the partnership next year.
“As a lifelong fan of LEGO toys and content, nothing brings me greater joy than partnering with AMEET on this iconic brand,” said Sean Mackiewicz, Senior Vice President, Editor-in-Chief at Skybound Entertainment. “Each title will be a portal to the endless worlds accessible in every LEGO play session, created to inspire the LEGO builders, readers, and thinkers of tomorrow.”
LEGO comic strips already form a core part of Immediate Media’s monthly LEGO Star Wars, NINJAGO and CITY magazines, but it sounds like this new partnership – which is part of the LEGO Group’s wider LEGO Books strategy – will result in fully-fledged, traditional comic books.
“Comic books form a key component of the LEGO Books publishing strategy to bring LEGO stories to young readers everywhere,” said Eric Huang, Vice President and Publisher at AMEET. “Skybound is the perfect LEGO Books comics partner. They’re as passionate as we are about publishing books that encourage creativity and play.”
