Lion Forge Announces Knight Rider Vs. Airwolf Digital Comic!

K.I.T.T. by Jason Johnson

K.I.T.T. by Jason Johnson

At last weekend’s Emerald City Comic Con, Lion Forge Comics made the announcement that they are pitting Knight Rider against Airwolf for the very first time in a special crossover event!

Airwolf will be familiar to fans of the 1980’s “super-machine” genre (kickstarted by the success of Knight Rider). The show starred Jan Michael Vincent as Stringfellow Hawke, a hotshot pilot recruited by ‘The Firm’ to retrieve a sophisticated attack helicopter (Airwolf) that had fallen into terrorist hands. Once recovered, he retains the machine and agrees to use it for special government missions only to be returned if his brother – an MIA in Vietnam – can be found. Airwolf was the most successful of all the KR-inspired series, lasting three seasons from 1984-86 on CBS, and a fourth (with a new cast including Barry Van Dyke) on the USA network.

It has always been a favourite game of fanboys to speculate whether K.I.T.T or Airwolf would come out on top in a one-on-one confrontation, and the potential duel has also spawned some interested YouTube fan edits.

Adam Warren (Empowered) is writing the event and said he enjoyed playing around with the characters from these two shows. In addition to the event, the publisher mentioned there will be several one-shots that lead into the crossover and that one of them will be written by industry veteran Chuck Dixon (G.I. Joe, Batman).

In Memoriam: Joseph Ruskin

Joseph Ruskin (1924-2013)

Joseph Ruskin, who guest starred in Knight Rider‘s third season premiere Knight of the Drones, passed away December 28 from natural causes at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. He was 89.

Mr. Ruskin was a prolific character actor, appearing in 25 films and 124 television shows in a career spanning 50 years. His notable film appearances included The Magnificent Seven and Prizzi’s Honor. His television credits include appearances on The Outer Limits, Gunsmoke, The Wild Wild West, The Man From UNCLE, Mission: Impossible, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Bionic Woman, Starsky and Hutch, Quincy, M.E., BJ and the Bear, Airwolf, Riptide and Murder, She Wrote. His distinctive voice could be heard in video games and cartoons such as The Smurfs, Duck Tales and Spider-Man, and he was the uncredited voice of the Kanamits in the famous Twilight Zone episode ‘To Serve Man.’

He had roles in four different Star Trek series: Star Trek (1966), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise. He was the only actor to appear on screen in all four of the series in question.

Knight Rider fans will remember Mr. Ruskin as Bubba, the shifty manager of The Golden Fox Club in Knight of the Drones.
