In 2009 Dabel Brothers Publishing launched a new comic book line based on The Warriors. The first set of comics chart the events of the movie which was then followed-up by a 4-issue series called “Jailbreak” which tells the story about what happens after the movie ends. The Warriors comic is now published by Dynamite.
“The response on The Warriors movie adaptation has been fantastic. This really is a property that spans generations, as we’ve gotten both 50 year-olds and 20 year-olds giving us props,” says Rich Young, Dabel Business Manager and Co-Editor about “Jailbreak.” “We’ve also gotten a lot of feedback from fans, retailers and others telling us that they wanted to see original stories…so we’re moving straight into that.”

“Jailbreak” was written by Erik Henriksen. The first issue cover features artwork by the talented Tom Feister with guest covers on the other issues by well-known industry talent.
“Jailbreak kicks off with the Warriors planning to bust one of their own out of jail — but from there, it’s gonna spin in some directions readers won’t expect. We’re having a blast working on it, and, as long as we don’t mess up, readers are going to have as much fun as we’re having.” Henriksen adds, “And, uh, we’re totally not gonna mess up, by the way.” says Rich Young, Dabel Business Manager.
