Black Mask Studios to Publish MR. ROBOT Prequel Comic Later This Year
One of the most exciting and innovative shows on television, USA Network’s MR. ROBOT is making its way to comics for the first time with this upcoming series that show creator Sam Esmail developed with show writer Jeff McKibben. The comic book series will debut this Fall from Black Mask Studios, ahead of the fourth season of the Universal Cable Productions produced show.
Designed as a prequel to Season 1 of the show, this comic book series will document the formation of the mysterious group known as fsociety.
Esmail is writing the story, issues are being scripted by McKibben with support from Black Mask’s Matteo Pizzolo (Calexit), art by illustrator Antonio Fuso (Survival Fetish) and colorist Tyler Boss (4 Kids Walk Into A Bank).
Mr. Robot marks the first time creator-owned comics publisher Black Mask has stepped into the world of adapting characters from other media for comics. With both the show and the publisher’s subversive points of view and creator-driven approaches, Mr. Robot is a uniquely perfect fit for creative partnership.
