Stretch Armstrong Reaches Into Comics
Stretch Armstrong will be flexing his multi-media muscles even further this coming January when the first issue of Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters arrives.
Based on the all-new Netflix animated series and inspired by the classic toy line, Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters features Jake Armstrong, a teenage superhero who teams up with his high school friends after they are exposed to experimental chemicals that give them amazing powers. Along with his partners Ricardo Perez, AKA Omni-Mass, and Nathan Park, AKA Wingspan, they’re a diverse group of heroes who attend high school by day and fight crime by night in the futuristic Charter City!
The comics will be written by series Executive Producers and head writers Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt with art by Nikos Koutsis. Cover art will be provided by Aluir Amancio and Koutsis. Burke and Wyatt developed Stretch Armstrong for television in collaboration with fellow Executive Producer, Victor Cook.
The forthcoming comic book series will take place during the events of this fall’s debut season of the Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters animated series. Fans who pick up the comic series will get an early glimpse at a new villain introduced in the comics before making its broadcast debut, laying the groundwork for more adventures to come! It wouldn’t be a stretch to say Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters #1 will be available in print and digital January 2018.
