Dynamite Comics grabs The Terminator license, for new tales and reprints

Dynamite is planning a big 40th anniversary for The Terminator, agreeing to a deal with STUDIOCANAL for a comics blitz.

Time for comics

Is The Terminator one of the greatest sci-fi properties of all time? It’s tough not to answer in the affirmative, as the movie that debuted the lead cyborg and the evil AI Skynet hit theaters back in 1984, and we’re still seeing fairly regular content today. A big part of that staying power though, especially in an age where the films have been forgettable at best, are comics.

We’ve seen a lull in those as of late, with the last published titles hailing from Dark Horse Comics. If you’ve been waiting for something new though, your time is almost here. Dynamite Comics just announced today that it has grabbed said license, and will be going big on it here in the 40th anniversary year.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this partnership done in collaboration with our agent Creative Licensing, the amazing storyline and wonderful artworks by Dynamite are the perfect way to kickstart the franchise´s upcoming anniversary,” said Valérie Rolandez-Barrios, STUDIOCANAL’s Senior VP IP Licensing and Partnerships.

“It’s incredibly thrilling to be working with one of the biggest classic action franchises,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “We’re excited to treat fans to a great celebration for the groundbreaking 40th anniversary of this beloved mythos bringing both new stories and collecting the library of existing comics.”

Dynamite Comics press release

While there aren’t a ton of details just yet on this new deal, as you can see above, there will be both new and old stories included. So if you have a favorite Terminator comic from decades gone by, you just might be seeing it return to print. Dynamite actually adds that will happen in a few different ways too, as the company will be bringing “these fan-favorite stories back in print in multiple ways, including premium options”.

What that means, we’re not sure, but stay tuned for plenty more in the months to come.
