Saved By The Bell

Some of your favorite 80's and 90's television series are being revived - in comic book form. "Saved by the Bell," "Knight Rider" and "Punky Brewster" are set to return as digital comics. "Miami Vice" and "Airwolf" will also be making a comeback.

Television execs from NBC have teamed up with Missouri publishing house Lion Forge Comics to revive the five shows in digital form. They will be available for e-book purchase later this year and will feature memorable characters such as "Miami Vice" detectives James "Sonny" Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs; "Saved by the Bell's" Zack Morris, who was portrayed by Mark-Paul Gosselaar; and Soleil Moon Frye's Penelope "Punky" Brewster.

David Steward, comic book executive, commented: "From hugely popular characters such as Crockett and Tubbs, Zack Morris and Punky Brewster to highly stylised music and clothing choices, these TV franchises have had a significant impact on pop culture.

"We here at Lion Forge are looking forward to extending that influence by creating visually appealing and entertaining experiences on mobile devices for a whole new generation of fans."
