A new Speed Racer comic book series is in the works. Artist/writer Tommy Yune will return with new stories after his 1999 run with the DC/Wildstorm imprint. This would be his first non-Robotech related work in over a decade. Robby Musso (Transformers Spotlight), Lee Kohse, James Rochelle and Len Wein (Human Target, Swamp Thing, X-Men, Wolverine) are also slated to produce new stories.
The Japanese manga and anime title Mach Go Go Go was the original source for the English adaptation that appeared in the 60s. The original comic book was released in the 1980s by NOW Comics, but it was Tommy Yune's version that inspired the 2008 Warner Brothers film.
There is no scheduled release date for the first issue.
