Last night, the first NBA superhero made an appearance for the first time ever!
The BrooklyKnight is not only the new mascot of the Brooklyn Nets, but he also serves as “protector of Brooklyn’s hometown team, defender of New York’s largest and most courageous borough, and ruler of Barclays Center.”
BrooklyKnight #1, a 32-page comic book — written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Mike Deodato of Marvel Comics— was handed out last night during the Nets game versus the Toronto Raptors, and will be the first of many comics based on Brooklyn's new hero.
On November 11th, when the Nets square up against the Orlando Magic, a limited edition BrooklyKnight trading card courtesy of Marvel Custom Solutions and the Brooklyn Nets will be given out.
Both the comic book and trading card will definitely end up being collector's items and if fans of the team are wise, they will treat them as such!
You can take a look at some of the illustrations from the BrooklyKnight's first issue in the gallery above.
