DC Comics and Epic Games have just announced that they will be working on a Gears of War comic book that is set to debut from DC's Wildstorm publishingimprint in Ocober. No further details have yet been announced and such details like the creative team working on it will be announced at a later date.
“We are thrilled to be working with DC Comics to further bring to life the Gears of War universe. A lot of our developers are huge comic fans, and have loved the personas and chronicles unique to DC Comics since childhood,” said Dr. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games. “The Gears of War storyline and characters that millions of gamers have come to cherish will be a perfect fit under the WildStorm imprint.”
“Big guns and monsters — what a perfect comic book for WildStorm! We have an opportunity to work closely with Epic to add to the canon of the Gears of War mythos, so you can imagine how excited we all are, said Hank Kanalz, VP – General Manager, WildStorm. “Epic sets the bar very high, in graphics, story, and gameplay — and expect no less from our series, starting with our lead-in arc that fills in the gaps between the first game and the upcoming sequel.”
Let's hope that Gears the comic book will be as gripping and immersive as Gears the game. When mixing two powerhouses like Epic and DC together though, the results can only be good... Surely!
