Yoga Hosers - From Kevin Smith and Dynamite! ~ What'cha Reading?

Yoga Hosers – From Kevin Smith and Dynamite!

Yoga Hosers - From Kevin Smith and Dynamite!Kevin Smith’s newest film Yoga Hosers, is opening at Sundance Film Festival this week. The film, starring Smith’s daughter Harley and actor Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily Rose, is a teen horror/comedy centering around the two teen yoga fanatics drawn into a battle with an ancient evil.
At this point you’re probably saying to yourself, okay so Smith has obviously lost his damn mind what does this have to do with What’cha Reading? Not much except that Dynamite did a comic which will be given out at the movie’s premiere.
The press release also contains this little gem from Kevin Smith,
“Nick and the Dynamite folks have made a home for me at their shop over the years. So when I thought about launching SModComics, he was my first call. I look forward to turning lots of material from my podcasts and movies into 4-color extensions of what we do in other media. And I’m happy to do it with Dynamite – the Jersey-based comics giant!”
So I guess we can look forward to more Smith properties turned into comics, though I do remember something from Onipress back in 90’s. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what comes of this, the man has proven he can write comics but will he have the distance to adapt his own stuff as well?
Here’s a few pages of the upcoming Yoga Hosers comic, we’ll keep you up to date as more info comes out…

Here’s more from the Dynamite press release:”The relationship we have with Kevin is incredibly rewarding. His resume speaks for itself, as he has reinvigorated great comic characters like Daredevil and Green Arrow at Marvel and DC respectively, along with Green Hornet and Six Million Dollar Man here at Dynamite,” states CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “His talent brings fans to the industry, and when he asked if we would be a part of this event, of course we said yes!”

This special prequel comic to the upcoming film features an original story by Yoga Hosers writer/director Kevin Smith himself, with art by Jeff Quigley, and is available exclusively at the film’s premiere on Sunday January 24 at the Sundance Film Festival!
