Not only do we have a sequel film and video game based upon 2015’s cult movie sensation Turbo Kid in development, but Behemoth Comics’ Happy Tank has announced that it is set to publish a prequel comic book series entitled Turbo Kid: Apple’s Lost Adventure.
The series is written by the filmmaking creative team of RKSS and drawn by the movie’s storyboard artist Jeik Dion, and will explore the origins of the fan favourite Apple and the events that led her to the Kid.
“Working with RKSS on the Turbo Kid franchise brought me back when I was 8 years old, waking up before my parents, on a Saturday morning, getting ready to watch cartoons for hours,” said artist Dion. “It’s exactly like that, but with way more blood.”
“I always looked up to Turbo Kid as an inspiration,” added Happy Tank Publisher Kevin Roditeli. “It’s the greatest indie film ever made here (in Quebec, Canada). Without being patriotic, it’s exciting and special to have the chance to contribute to this franchise. If you’re a music label from Toronto and Drake asks you to sign his album you say ‘HELL YES!’ and be proud. That’s exactly how I feel right now. RKSS and Jeik Dion are talented beasts.”
Turbo Kid: Apple’s Lost Adventure #1 will go on sale in September 2021.
