Cobra Kai Original Soundtrack Triple Album 

The Cobra Kai original score, composed by Leo Birenberg and Zach Robinson, is honestly one of the best things about the Netflix streaming series with its perfect mix of dramatic orchestrations, hard-hitting rock anthems, and all that moody vaporwave droning throughout the first three seasons. Now that music can be yours with the Cobra Kai original soundtrack vinyl record set. The first LP is inspired by Cobra Kai Dojo, the second album is dedicated to Miyagi-Do, and the third record contains music from the final fights in all three season finales. On top of that, the Mondo version of the triple album comes with a bonus cassette tape.

Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues Graphic Novel

One of the best things about Cobra Kai is the way it helps show another side of Johnny Lawrence, a side we never got to see in 1984’s The Karate Kid. And just like in the show, the Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues graphic novel shows how the showdown at the All Valley Championship forever changed the life of the future Cobra Kai sensei and continues to do so more than 35 years later. Whether you want to introduce the story to someone who has yet to watch the show or that person in your life that just can’t get enough of the hit series, Denton J. Tipton’s 96-page tale of the leg-sweeping, dirt bike-riding, blonde-haired martial artist’s story. Plus, it’s filled with amazing artwork showing some of Lawrence’s most pivotal moments.

When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
