Not content to have a second film on the way, reluctant hit man John Wick is poised to target a new comic book series as well.

In addition to the anticipated theatrical bow of “John Wick: Chapter 2,” Dynamite Entertainment and Lionsgate Entertainment have announced that they’ve teamed up to bring Keanu Reeves’ fan-favorite character to a new medium in 2017.

“John Wick was such an exciting film, mixing martial arts action with snappy dialogue and smart writing,” Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci said in a statement. “As the credits rolled, you were left wanting more, and it was obvious that they had the makings of a franchise. We were quick to pursue the opportunity to develop a comic book series, and are thrilled to have been granted the rights to tell all-new stories with the character!”

“A comic series is the perfect vehicle to engage in a different way with fans as well as expand the John Wick universe,” Added Sheila Clarke, SVP Global Consumer Products Lionsgate Entertainment. “We found a great partner in industry leader Dynamite Entertainment who shared our passion and enthusiasm for the franchise.”

No creative team has been announced, though Dynamite has provided pencil tests of John Wick by artist Giovanni Valletta. Similarly, no mention of whether Wick’s dog will factor into the new series was made in the release.

The comic book series will take place years before the events of the first John Wick film, following John as a young man, who after being released from prison, starts on his first mission of vengeance. But when his mission leads him into contact with a strange and powerful community of assassins, John must learn how to master the Book of Rules that acts as a kind of guide for their lethal business. What are the Three Bills? Who is Calamity? And ultimately, who was John Wick before he became the Baba Yaga? It is slated to launch on September 6th.

Sounds so f*cking awesome! Cant wait to read it. I hope they make that into a movie! Especially since Keanu is immortal; he shouldnt have any problem playing a younger version of himself.

If the TV Show 'The Continental' is successful, maybe these comics can be storylines for future Seasons! ;) :thumbs:
