Webtoon the popular digital comics publisher and comic publisher Legendary Comics announced today an expansion to their partnership that will include two all-new titles and a second season for red-hot series Firebrand. The two new titled are ROB, a medieval action-packed hero’s journey by Richard Dinnick and CURSED, a new fantasy series, in Scottish mythology starring entertainer John Barrowman.
Created by British screenwriter and novelist Richard Dinnick, best known for his work in the revered Doctor Who franchise, ROB is a new series set in medieval England and France that follows Rob, a knight in training under the guidance of Sir Hugh. On a run-of-the-mill hunting trip, Rob tries to save the life of ‘The Young King’ of England, but instead of being rewarded for his bravery, Rob is banished from the land. When The Young King is assassinated by France’s Chevaliers Sinistre, a secret order of highly-trained French knights, Rob and his mentor, Sir Hugh, head East to Constantinople disguised as pilgrims to complete a secret quest for ‘The Spear of Destiny.’
