A few months ago, Skybound Publishing announced that they were launching a LEGO® related title in 2022. We are now less than 24 hours out from their annual ’reveal event’, the second Halloween Xpo.
Part of the event, which kicks off at 10am Pacific Time on Friday 29th October is a ’ Top Secret Skybound and LEGO Panel’
From the announcement of the program:
No fan can miss the WORLD PREMIERE reveal of the very first LEGO comic book series from Skybound, in partnership with AMEET Publishing. Join writer/artist Tri Vuong (Everyday Hero Machine Boy), Sean Mackiewicz (Skybound SVP/Editor in Chief), Daniel Konstanski (The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks), Hayley Wolfe (AKA Sensei Wolf) and LEGO NINJAGO® series creator and TV show producer Tommy Andreasen and LEGO NINJAGO® producer/Transmedia Tommy Kalmar to discuss building a brand-new comic world brick by brick! Moderated by Eric Huang (VP and Publisher, AMEET).
Hmmm: featuring a Comic Artist/ Writer, a comic publishing company executive and the Ninjago Creator/Showrunner, I wonder what on earth they could be going to talk about?
Could Tommy Andreasen be moving on to create a LEGO® Walking Dead Halloween One-shot Special? LEGO Invincible? I suspect these will be outside the brand values. Is it a new, post-Ninjago product line being announced? Or could it be a new LEGO® Ninjago comic?
I suspect we will learn more before too long. The LEGO Panel will begin at Friday 29th October 10:45am Pacific time or 4:45am Saturday 30th Australian Eastern Daylight time. Yikes. I’d best set my alarm clock.
I’m excited to see what this partnership brings us, going forward. What are you hoping to see? why not leave your comments below, and until next time,
