Where were you in 1983? If you were like us, chances are you were feeding quarters into classic arcade games like Dragon’s Lair, the Don Bluth creation which has survived the test of time, and has now made its debut as a comic book app.
zuuka has announced the release of Dragon’s Lair Comics, a universal app which brings the classic Don Bluth video game onto the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in comic book form. The digital version of the series is debuting on Wednesday with the original six issues, and the first one is free.
“Don Bluth’s vision and creative genius with Dragon’s Lair set a new standard for animation and since then has entertained millions through video games and graphic novels,” said Woody Sears, founder of zuuka. “We are very honored to be bring fans the first-ever digital comic series of such a popular title as Dragon’s Lair and know they’ll enjoy it just as much as we do.”
The universal, Retina Display-enhanced Dragon’s Lair Comics app is absolutely free and includes the first issue, with other issues available via in-app purchase for only $1.99 each.
Dragon’s Lair Comic issue No. 1 begins the adventure with the deadly dragon Singe swearing revenge on Dirk the Daring for killing his offspring as he swoops up Princess Daphne in his razor-sharp claws. Now, armed with his courage and skills, the brave knight must survive the dangers of the Dark Kingdom to save his Princess. It’s swordplay, sorcery, dragons, and damsels…plus a pinch of humor. Lead on, adventurer…your quest awaits!
And what does the creator of Dragon’s Lair have to say about the new partnership? “We are proud to be associated with zuuka Comics and their line up of digital comic books,” responded Don Bluth.
