As part of their SDCC ’17 announcements, the convention happening this week in San Diego, Dark Horse have announced a partnership with Guillermo del Toro and Universal Brand Development to create a graphic novel with further adventures for DreamWorks Animation Television’s Trollhunters’ teenage hero, Jim Lake, Jr.

In Trollhunters: The Secret History of Trollkind, Trollhunters executive producer and writer Marc Guggenheim and How to Train Your Dragon graphic novel writer Richard Hamilton work alongside Trollhunters creator and executive producer Guillermo del Toro to co-write this companion tale to the Emmy-winning Netflix series.

Timothy Green II (Avenger’s Academy, Justice League: 3001) provides artwork for Trollhunters: The Secret History of Trollkind with Wes Dzioba (Hack/Slash: The Series, Serenity: No Power in the ‘Verse) on colors. The cover is by Bill Sienkiewicz (New Mutants, Elektra: Assassin).

Trollhunters: The Secret History of Trollkind explores Jim’s journey as the first human Trollhunter and defender of good Trolls.

According to Dark Horse:

The secrets of the great Troll warriors of the past are crucial tools for the new Trollhunter, and the time has come for Jim to appreciate the battles of Kanjigar the Courageous, who through his own struggles, triumphs, and failures lead the Trolls after the Battle of Killahead Bridge through unknown territory, across oceans and continents, and past fearsome foes!  With his friends by his side, Jim continues the fight against the Gumm-Gumms and their allies!

Trollhunters: The Secret History of Trollkind goes on sale February 14, 2017, and is available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop.
