Hellgate gets comic!
Dark Horse Comics to produce Hellgate comic books.
Namco Bandai today announced a partnership with Dark Horse Comics to produce a comic book based on Hellgate: London, the first original PC title from premier developer Flagship Studios.
The comic book provides the background story behind Hellgate: London. Issue “0” begins when MI5 service agent Lyra Darius discovers a human charnel house in London whilst investigating the affairs of recently resigned Home Office Minister, Lord Sumerisle. Soon afterwards, Lyra is entangled in a bloody conspiracy with the Knights Templar in the build-up to the Battle of All Hallows’ Eve.
This exclusive Issue “0” comic is written by Ian Edginton, the critically acclaimed author of Scarlet Traces and the recent War of the Worlds web comic adaptation. Edginton teams up with Superman and Preacher artist Steve Pugh to explore this demon-ravaged metropolis in comic form. Issue “0” is to be given away at the E3 2006 tradeshow on May 10th – 12th.
