IDW Publishing has announced that Stretch Armstrong will be extending his reach into comic books this January with the launch of the new series Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters.
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!
“We’re so excited to bring Stretch Armstrong into comics with IDW,” says Burke. “Our teen superhero TV series is very much influenced by classic comics, so Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters having their own monthly print adventures feels like a perfect fit.”
“We’re carefully designing the Stretch Armstrong comic book stories to work as ‘stand alones’ for people who haven’t seen the Netflix series yet, but to also reward viewers of the show with more depth on their favorite characters,” says Wyatt. “We’re having a blast writing these issues.”
Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters is written by series Executive Producers and head writers Kevin Burke & Chris “Doc” Wyatt with art by Nikos Koutsis (Savage Dragon). Look for it it comic book stores in January 2018.
