Preview: Knight Rider Vol. 2 – Knightstrikes

When Lion Forge debuted as a print publisher earlier this year, we thought we should lead with the best; the spy-fi classic, Knight Rider. Made popular by David Hasselhoff (and ably assisted by William Daniels as the voice of KITT, the show’s legendary talking car), the classic primetime show on NBC paved the way for a slate of fun action series that live on today in the nostalgia of grownup ’80s kids.
From the very first episode, Michael Knight and KITT became fast friends — often described as a modern day Lone Ranger and Tonto — as they stopped threats around the world with some awesome tech and witty banter. The graphic novel series from Lion Forge keeps all that intact while updating some of the gizmos. Reaction to the first book was so great that we went back for more, and the second volume hits stores shelves tomorrow.
Knight Rider Vol. 2: Knightstrikes picks up right where the opening graphic novel left off, in a series of standalone shorts that sees the dynamic duo (well, this dynamic duo) saving the country from terrorists, clandestine spy networks, and super criminals. And we assembled an all-star team of comics industry lights to make it happen, including Adam Warren (Empowered), Chuck Dixon (Batman, Punisher), Joe Pruett (Negative Burn), B. Clay Moore (Hawaiian Dick), and Jason Johnson (WildC.A.T.s).
