Oni Press, in partnership with The Nacelle Company, has shared the first look at NacelleVerse Issue 0. The giant-sized 48-page book will launch the iconic Robo Force, Biker Mice from Mars, Sectaurs, Power Lords, The Great Garloo, and more before their animated debuts in 2024!
The Nacelleverse is really revving up. It was recently announced by Deadline that Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Seven Bucks Productions will be co-producing Nacelle’s Robo Force: The Animated Series. And now, Oni Press will be launching a giant-sized comic book to mark the modern first appearance of Robo Force, Biker Mice from Mars, and more come March 20, 2024.
“I’m very excited that we’ll be launching the NacelleVerse with comic books that will set up all the characters, worlds, and plot lines that will be unfolding over the next 5 years as our series come to life,” shared Nacelle Founder and CEO, Brian Volk-Weiss.
The upcoming NacelleVerse issue 0 will be written by Melissa Flores. I’m a fan of Flores’ work on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series. So, I’m looking forward to seeing how she will handle the various IPs and make them palatable for the current audience.
The art will be done by Diogenes Neves (Realm of X, Suicide Squad), Eisner Award nominee Francis Portela (Green Lantern, Faith), and more.
The covers will be done by a bunch of talented artists, including Marco D’Alfonso (Miles Morales: Spider-Man), Logan Lubera (New Fantastic Four), InHyuk Lee (DCeased), Livio Ramondelli (Transformers), and Mike Deodato Jr. (New Avengers, The Flash).
The synopsis reads:
When his planet is annihilated by a cosmic disaster, the alien Great Garloo must begin a galaxy-spanning search for a new home . . . only to discover a bold new universe of champions waiting amongst the stars! From the genetically modified Sectaur warriors of the planet Symbion to the rabble-rousing Biker Mice from Mars, Garloo’s quest for safe haven will hurdle him on a one-way collision course toward 22nd Century Earth . . . where the obsolete robotic work crew called RoboForce is about to forge a new destiny . . .
According to Flores, who grew up being a fan of the featured characters, Garloo will serve as the audience surrogate. He will travel the NacelleVerse and encounter a bunch of complicated characters and circumstances including smugglers, civil wars, and robots. As someone without a home, the narrative will explore the theme of finding a true home through Garloo’s adventures.
Along with issue 0, the 3-part Robo Force comic book will debut sometime in April of next year. The 3-part Biker Mice from Mars comic book will launch sometime in July 2023. Sectaurs and Power Lords will also be getting 3-part stories.
The Nacelle Company has huge plans for the NacelleVerse. Along with Johnson being behind the animated Robo Force series, the Biker Mice from Mars animated series will be produced in partnership with executive producer Ryan Reynolds.
For those who might know, Robo Force was a toy line created in the year 1984. Biker Mice from Mars is from 1993. The Sectaurs toy line debuted in 1985. And Power Lords is from 1983.
It will be very interesting to see how these iconic IPs will be reworked to attract new fans and appease the old ones across various forms of media. Nacelle is behind the very enjoyable The Toys That Made Us documentary series. So, I have high hopes.
