Everyone’s attaching a comic to their video game launch these days. After the success of Mass Effect comics, Bioware has stuck by comic publishing superstar Dark Horse to create a Dragon Age series.
The comic will be penned by David Gaider, the lead writer for Dragon Age the game.
In a press release today Dark Horse said:
The thrilling, six-part series will feature a riveting story that takes fans of the critically-acclaimed Dragon Age franchise deeper into the RPG’s mythology. Readers will follow Alistair, Isabela, and Varric, three important heroes from Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II, as they travel to Antiva, a nation ruled by deadly assassins. The comic series’ heroes will embark on an epic journey to uncover one of the greatest secrets in the history of Thedas while encountering a dangerous prison break and the mysterious and feared Witch of the Wilds.
Dark Horse Comics will release the six-part comic series exclusively at www.digital.darkhorse.com for $0.99 each starting February 22, 2012.
