LEGO NINJAGO GARMADON is a five-part series from writer and artist Tri Vuong that focuses on classic NINJAGO villain Garmadon, Lord of Destruction. Only in this story, he’s saving faraway villages from mysterious threats, in something of a heel turn for the long-missing character.
The official synopsis for the series – which is a joint effort between Skybound Entertainment and children’s book publisher AMEET – hints the story could go either way: “Has Garmadon turned over a new leaf since his disappearance, or is this just the first step in his master plan of finally defeating Master Wu and the ninja forever?”
The first issue will arrive on April 6, 2022, with subsequent instalments following in due course. It’s the first comic book series to come out of the partnership between Skybound and children’s book publisher AMEET, with more titles due to be announced over the coming year.
“When it came to our first LEGO comic book series launch, we knew it had to be full of action, adventure and heartfelt drama – everything that’s made the LEGO NINJAGO franchise so iconic,” said Sean Mackiewicz, Senior Vice President and Editor-in-Chief at Skybound Entertainment.
“It’s been such a great opportunity to play within the LEGO universe,” added Vuong. “The LEGO NINJAGO franchise has all the qualities that I love in a story; action, adventure, humour and compelling characters. In our new series, we’re paying homage to the LEGO NINJAGO franchise while expanding the mythology with new stories on this beloved property.”
