Dynamite Entertainment Is Set To Launch New "John Wick" Comic Series In 2017
John Wick is coming back to theaters in about two months, however Dynamite Entertainment plans share his stories even after the films are finished. .Dynamite announced that it will be publishing John Wick comics in 2017, thanks to a new deal with Lionsgate. However, because the deal was only announced this week, that means that the new comics won’t arrive in time to fully capitalize on John Wick: Chapter 2; which will be released on February 10, 2017.
According to Dynamite, the comics will not be direct adaptations of the first two John Wick movies. That said, the first movie suggested several additional stories that could easily be explored, including John’s stint as a hitman for Viggo Tarasov, John’s relationship with his wife, John’s history with Marcus and Ms. Perkins, and the larger world of the franchise. Even some of the side characters like Winston and his Continental Hotel could be fleshed out in this format.
