Famed Atari Games Revived In Comic Form

Dynamite Entertainment is teaming with classic games creator Atari that will see several of its classic video game properties being rebooted in comic form.

The new deal allows the publisher to create new comics and graphic novels based on a select number of Atari properties, along with reprinting the 1980s DC Comics series “Atari Force” and a hardcover retrospective of Atari’s output over the years starting with Pong.

In a statement, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais says: “Atari’s roots in the comic book world and iconic art is a collector and video game enthusiast’s dream. Our partnership is a fun way to expose our brand to a new generation and resonate with our longtime fans.”

Announcements for individual projects are expected to take place in coming months.
