In an early pre-San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) announcement, IDW Publishing and Activision are revealing that video game/figure phenomenon Skylanders' next adventure will be in comic book (and digital) form. Skylanders #0 will debut this July at SDCC. It will feature a 16-page story which serves as a prequel to October's Skylanders: Trap Team video game. The comic will be written by Ron Marz (who also wrote for the Skylanders: Swap Force videogame) with art by Skylanders lead artists Mike Bowden and David Baldeon.

The comic series delve into the backstories of the Skylanders characters and expand on the universe they live in. Skylanders will also be appearing in IDW's Micro Comic Fun Packs line-up, available in comic book stores and mass market this October.

Skylanders started off as a new video and interactive figure game spin-off of Spyro the Dragon in 2011. It's now in the top 20 of highest selling video game franchises.
