Skybound Entertainment has announced that they have entered a new partnership along with AMEET to create LEGO branded comic books with the first one coming in 2022. The partnership will bring LEGO properties into Skybound’s extensive list of comic book series including The Walking Dead, Invincible, and Ultramega. Skybound will announce which LEGO IPs they will be using in the next few months and the comics will be published by Image Comics and Skybound.
There’s no mentioning in press release of any LEGO sets for Skybound’s properties but it does certainly open the door to discussions especially since LEGO has recently ventured into the more adult-oriented 18+ sets.
