Last year, on May 2017, Dark Horse and Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana announced a publishing agreement to produce a series of graphic novels based on their animated action series, Mysticons. Today, the partners are excited to reveal details from the upcoming graphic novel series! [and perhaps with further details at Emerald City Comic Con, which started today. -Ed]
Yes, watching Mysticons is a guilty pleasure for us here at Otakunoculture. The series is very enjoyable to watch and the music is far catchier than those Sailor Moon openings we saw decades prior.
Dark Horse’s Spell on Wheels creative team, writer Kate Leth (Patsy Walker aka Hellcat!), artist Megan Levens (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and colorist Marissa Louise (Wonder Woman Annual), joins forces once again to bring more empowering female characters to life!
The second season of Mysticons recently premiered on Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons in the U.S. and Corus’ YTV network in Canada will follow suit on April 8, following a successful first season launch in August 2017. On YouTube, the series has surpassed 4.1 million views of its short form content. Dark Horse joins an array of previously announced Mysticons partners including Playmates Toys (Master Toy), The Topps Company (Trading Cards and Confectionery) and MacMillan Publishers (Novels).
Mysticons Volume One is a contemporary urban fantasy about four girls from different walks of life who are transformed into the legendary Mysticons! In Arkayna, Zarya, Emerald, and Piper’s first adventure, the girls investigate evil biker twins who have been stealing and using magic to keep first place in a deadly drag racing circuit, causing mayhem on the streets of Drake City. It’s up to the Mysticons to work together to save their city!
Mysticons Volume One goes on sale August 8, 2018, and is available for pre-order on Amazon and at your local comic shop. This 80-page original graphic novel retails for $10.99.
