The Cloak & Dagger trailer looks great! But we’re going to have to wait….
I’m going to show my age, but I remember when Cloak & Dagger first got their own comic book. It was the early 80’s. I was just a kid. And I was a kid that was just really into comics. Unfortunately, I was also a kid that depended on my folks buying comics for me, and they definitely held me to a limit. I remember seeing the first Cloak & Dagger, and remember that even though the characters looked so cool to my young mind, it just wasn’t worth passing up another favorite for. And I never did get that comic.
But my comic habits did eventually run across the characters. Typically in guest shots in those comics that were more of a priority for me. While the characters never really achieved top tier level popularity within their own comics, they were frequent guests in other comics.
Cloak and Dagger are two characters, Tyrone “Ty” Johnson (Cloak) and Tandy Bowen (Dagger). The two had somewhat opposing powers, and I’m still not entirely sure what all they were. Cloak had dark powers, and would absorb people into the cloak which he wore. Dagger had light powers and would throw daggers of light. It made sense in the books I read. Really, it did.
Now these 80’s characters are receiving their own live action television series set to debut in 2018. And even though we won’t be able to watch the series until next year, it already has a trailer. And the trailer looks amazing!
