Posted on Jun 18, 2019

Indonesian superhero comic Gundala: Son of Lightning is now available on Line Webtoon, a global digital comic service platform. The series will be released every Wednesday and can be accessed via this link.

Gundala: Son of Lightning is based on comic books created in 1969 by the late Harya “Hasmi” Suraminata.

The modern version of Gundala: Son of Lightning is produced by veteran comic artist Is Yuniarto, who is also the general manager of Bumilangit Comics, in collaboration with Sweta Kartika.

The story follows Gundala, an alter ego of Sancaka, who secretly experiments with anti-lightning serum. One day, he is struck by lightning and gains a superpower to emit lightning from the palm of his hands.

The comic is said to be different from the movie Gundala, which has hit the big screen on 29 August 2019. In the comic, Sancaka has turned into Gundala and faces new enemies.

Gundala: The Son of Lightning is among Bumilangit Comics’ efforts to revive classic titles.

In addition to comic and film, Gundala will also be available in various formats, including animated TV series, comic strips, and more.
