Announced Thursday at New York Comic Con, “Lone Wolf 2100” is a remake of the 2003 comic of the same name by Mike Kennedy and Francisco Ruiz Velasco.
Created by Eric Heisserer, Miguel Sepulveda and David Gomez, the four-issue miniseries is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where an android named Itto must protect young Daisy Ogami, whose DNA is the key to curing a mutating virus that’s spreading across the globe.
Although Koike was indirectly involved in the 2003 comic, he isn’t consulting on the remake.
“Koike has given us his blessing to move forward, but he is not directly involved with this miniseries,” editor Randy Stradley told Newsarama. “Remember, Mr. Koike is in his eighties and pretty much retired.”
Dark Horse, which is publishing omnibus editions of “Lone Wolf and Cub,” released the original “Lone Wolf 2100” in 2003. The company is also publishing Koike’s “Lone Wolf” sequel, titled “New Lone Wolf and Cub.”
