We`re Getting a John Wick Comic!

It’s only a matter of weeks now until Keanu Reeves blasts his way back into theatres as our favourite hitman John Wick and in a piece of rather awesome news Dynamite Entertainment and Lionsgate Entertainment have put together a John Wick comic. I’ve always said I want to see more of the Continental in future John Wick movies so hopefully this new comic explores it.

Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci stated the comic will tell “all-new stories”:

John Wick was such an exciting film, mixing martial arts action with snappy dialogue and smart writing. 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!

Sheila Clarke, SVP Global Consumer Products Lionsgate Entertainment, added the comics are going to “expand the John Wick universe.”

A comic series is the perfect vehicle to engage in a different way with fans as well as expand the John Wick universe. We found a great partner in industry leader Dynamite Entertainment who shared our passion and enthusiasm for the franchise.

 

John Wick: Chapter 2 opens in theaters February 10th.
