Knight Rider Comic continues with second volume, “Knightstrikes”
Michael Knight and KITT — everyone’s ultimate dream car — are back in action in this explosive series of spy-fi adventures, Knight Rider Vol. 2: Knightstrikes!
Made popular by David Hasselhoff (and ably assisted by William Katt 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. The beloved primetime series returns to the sequential art page via Lion Forge Comics, picking up right where the high-octane graphic novel reboot left off. When secret agent Michael Knight activated the confidential Project: Rider in the heat of battle, the world’s coolest talking car was born. KITT has an arsenal of secret weapons and amazing upgrades under the hood, and he and Michael are both partners and pals as they set off to save the country from terrorists, clandestine spy networks, and super criminals. From the minds of today’s hottest action writers, KNIGHT STRIKES is the next chapter in the legendary KNIGHT RIDER mythos!
Knight Rider Vol. 2: Knightstrikes features 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).
