The slanted view The Karate Kid presented of Daniel LaRusso’s shit-stirring antics are to be corrected in a new comic book.
Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues is to be written by Denton J. Tipton (The X-Files) and illustrated by Kagan McLeod (Infinite Kung Fu). The story will re-examine the events of the original film from a different perspective – essentially re-telling the story but from Johnny’s POV:
“[Seen] through the eyes of Johnny Lawrence, two-time All Valley Tournament champion. When the new kid makes moves on the girl that broke Johnny’s heart, he vows to settle the score and win back his love…or so goes the story Sensei Lawrence tells his students nearly 35 years later.”
The first issue of Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues will hit shelves in October 2019.
