cobra kai Fans are probably curious as to what will happen to series villain John Kreese after the stunt he pulled in the Season 5 finale. While we await an official word on Season 6, NYCC attendees will be happy to hear they’ll be able to talk to Kreese in person: Star of the series Martin Kove will be at the event and a lucky few will be able to stand face to face with him and say “strike first, strike hard, no mercy”. Kove selected NYCC as the stage to launch his new project: a comic he co-created with Thunder Comics, titled Prodigal son.
The comic centers on a teenager who teams up with an outlaw to seek revenge. Kove co-created the story with don handfield (co-creator and EP of fall of knightswriter of amazing stories). Comic book fans will also know Handfield as the co-creator of eternalthe successful comic book series also written by Anstaszja Davis and motion capture master Andy Serkis. The official synopsis says:
“Prodigal Son” is an action-packed story that revolves around a twelve-year-old boy who teams up with the most evil outlaw in the Old West to get revenge on the gang that murdered his family in cold blood. The outlaw has his own reasons for wanting the gang dead, and as they chase the killers deeper into the desert, the boy must decide who is the greater threat to his soul: the ruthless gang or the outlaw who saved him.
