USA Network partners with DC Comics on Burn Notice webcomic

by  in Comic News Comment

USA Network has teamed with DC Comics to launch a webcomic — or, rather, “an interactive graphic novel” — for Burn Notice, the cable channel’s hit action series.

USA Today’s Whitney Matheson reports that A New Day is designed to bridge the storylines between the fourth season, which ended with former spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) seemingly being welcomed back into the intelligence fold, and the fifth season, which premieres tonight.

Penned by Burn Notice writer Ryan Johnson and script coordinator Peter Laylaynis, illustrated by Tony Shasteen and overseen by series creator Matt Nix, Burn Notice: A New Day will run for 12 weeks, and include games, ciphers, video and more. Burn Notice returns tonight at 9 ET/PT on USA.
