Dynamite and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products announced a partnership today to release a range of comic books and graphic novels inspired by some of WBD’s favorite franchises and characters, some of whom have never had their own comic incarnations before. Starting in early 2024, ThunderCats by Declan Shalvey leads the charge and is set to launch in February. 

The initial slate of titles planned to be released across multiple formats includes titles that fans of many generations will recognize such as ThunderCats, The Flintstones, The Powerpuff Girls, Space Ghost, Jonny Quest, The Wizard of Oz, We Bare Bears, and more. The stories will be released in a range of formats and avenues, across the applicable franchises.

“Warner Bros. has been at the heart of entertainment in America and across the world for an incredible hundred years, and home to so many beloved stories and franchises,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “We’re incredibly excited to bring many of them with the biggest and most passionate fanbases back to comics or for the first time, as we work with WBD and wonderful creators to bring all-new stories to the fans!”

Shalvey (Alien, Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan, Old Dog) is joined by Drew Moss (Gargoyles: Dark Ages, Vampirella/Red Sonja, Copperhead) and letterer Jeff Eckleberry. The book “aims to be a refreshing yet timeless take on the classic mythos and characters, pulling from Shalvey’s ability to weave complex narratives alongside the striking visuals from Moss.”

The initial storyline is currently planned to delve into the earliest days on Third Earth, the world that the ThunderCats are forced to survive on after escaping their original home. With an origin approach in part, the title will explore untold histories and new challenges for Lion-O, Cheetara, and the rest of the group.

Shalvey will dig deeper into the iconic character relationships and push further on the science fiction underpinnings, while Moss is set to portray the wondrous environments of Third Earth and the visually engaging action set pieces. With Lion-O at the center, following his journey toward becoming a worthy leader, the team will work together, combining their diverse talents, attitudes and learning about the magical power of the Eye of Thundera. But will they be able to accomplish these goals and growth, with Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living’s eyes set on them? With the franchise’s trademark blend of action, drama, and touches of science fiction, fans will not want to miss this all-new approach.

Dynamite can reveal covers by Shalvey and Lucio Parrillo at this time. More information about Dynamite’s ThunderCats launch will be shared soon!

  1. It’s great that WB/D is forging a relationship with an established comics publisher. I’d love to see some comic adaptations of a few of their movie properties like Batman or Superman.
