The Netflix TV adaptation of LeSean Thomas’ Cannon Busters comic book has achieved release date.  It’s been a long time coming.  The announcement was made Sunday at the LA Anime Expo and on Twitter by Thomas, himself.  

Cannon Busters has had a long road to Netflix.  It was first published in 2005.  After its soaring popularity, Thomas enlisted help to make it into a film with a Kickstarter campaign in 2014.  Then, in 2017, Netflix announced that the film would be released on their streaming service as a series that year… which got pushed to 2018, shelved, and brought back to life!  Whew.  Deadline reported, Sunday.  

Here’s the log line for the story:  “Cannon Busters follows the adventures of S.A.M, a high-end friendship droid who’s joined by a quirky, discarded maintenance robot and a brash, deadly fugitive. Together, the unlikely trio embarks on an unforgettable journey in a fantastic and dangerous world in search of S.A.M’s best friend, the heir to a kingdom under siege.”  

Netflix will start streaming Cannon Busters on August 15th.
