Did you hear? Dark Horse & Panda Mony Team Up!


Dark Horse and Panda Mony Toys Present “Alter Nation: The Mystery of Whining Winny” 

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (October 4, 2019) – Ahead of New York Comic Con, Dark Horse Comics and Panda Mony Toys are excited to announce a new publishing partnership based on Panda Mony Toy’s line of exciting and unique human-animal hybrid figures, Alter Nation! At a top-secret island base off the California coast, these human-animal hybrids, also known as the GK Delta Special Forces, dedicate themselves to protecting humanity from forces that no typical human can defeat – and no one is allowed to know. Find out what happens when they discover that their origin isn’t what it seems and is part of a larger cover-up. On October 16, 2019, Dark Horse and Panda Mony Toys will release a 12-page digital comic preview of an upcoming graphic novel, Alter Nation: The Mystery of Whining Winny

In Alter Nation: The Mystery of Whining Winny, the GK Delta team is the only line of defense against threats that normal humans can’t stop. Join the team as they’re dispatched to Nevada where it’s rumored that a monster is menacing locals. Have they found a new member of GK Delta? If not, they’ll be trapped between it and the townspeople they need to save. Written by Tim Seeley (Grayson, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero), illustrated by Mike Norton (Battlepug), colored by Allen Passalaqua (Battlepug), and lettered by Crank! (Rick and Morty), Alter Nation: The Mystery of Whining Winny and the Panda Mony Toy line are sure to thrill fans!

The Alter Nation: The Mystery of Whining Winny 12-page digital comic preview will be available for fans to download for free on October 31, 2019. Fans can pre-order Alter Nation’s line of toys through the Panda Mony Toys store, which will go on sale on October 31, 2019, and each toy will contain a free mini-comic book.
