IDW to adapt ‘Cobra Kai’ into comics

Denton J. Tipton and Kagan McLeod will bring the YouTube Premium show to comics this fall.

You’ll be seeing more of Danny’s baby browns this fall, as IDW Publishing has announced a new miniseries featuring characters from The Karate Kid.

Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues will continue the story set up in the YouTube Premium program Cobra Kai, which is a continuation of the story set up in the original movies. Denton J. Tipton and Kagan McLeod are the creative team. Tipton is a group editor at IDW and has written their X-Files comics, while McLeod is an illustrator whose drawings have appeared in numerous publications; he also created the excellent graphic novel Infinite Kung fu.

My highly informative information graphic on THE SOLAR SYSTEM™ does just that.”

Science teachers may have some issues with it:
