Assassin's Creed comics due this fall

Three-part miniseries chronicling Ubisoft's stealthy warriors getting full reveal at Comic-Con 2010; St. Petersburg locale teased.

Comic-Con 2010 descends upon the San Diego Convention Center next week, and Ubisoft is greeting the trade show's arrival in kind with a comic book announcement. Today, the publisher said that it would be launching a comic book miniseries based on its top-selling Assassin's Creed franchise. The first issue in the three-part series is expected to arrive this fall.

Ubisoft has tapped illustrators Cameron Stewart (Batman & Robin, Seaguy) and Karl Kerschl (Superman, The Flash), both of which have been nominated for the Eisner Award and won the Shuster Award. Additional talent on the books has yet to be announced.

Assassin's Creed in the age of Rasputin.

Details on the Assassin's Creed comic book series were kept largely under wraps, with Ubisoft saying only that Stewart and Kerschl had visited St. Petersburg, Russia, to do research for the project. A promotional video also released today indicates that the comic series will be set in Russia around the time of the Tunguska Event, in the early 20th century.

The publisher plans to offer additional details on the project as part of the "Assassin’s Creed: Behind and Beyond the Brotherhood" Comic-Con 2010 panel, which will take place on July 22.

Spoiling All The New Story From AC Brother Hood Or The Future AC3 Is Not A Good Idea Cause Some Of Us AC Fans Or Gamers Want To Find About The Story In The Game Not In Comic !!

I can't wait for this game to come out. I'm going to have fun playing it when it does come out. But for now I'll play the second for the second time.

I knew this franchise will be an epic one from the first moment I laid my hands on the first ASSASSINS CREED game.......

I'm not sure about this. A comic doesn't seem likely to give off the cinematic feels the games have. A manga, maybe, yeah.

They're going to ruin it with a comic like they did the Silent Hill series? Dammit.

Comics? Why would anybody want more of Assassin's Creed's STORY? The story was the worst part.

Hey, just what we need! Do we have to be plugged into the Internet to actually read them? *cough* I'm standing firm on my epic Ubisoft boycott until I see some intelligent life calling the shots over there at Ubisoft HQ. Until then...I'll be doing something that resembles not waiting around for Ubisoft releases of any kind. LOL

I like Assassins Creed and all but...I really don't think I'd ever read an AC comic.

all i have to say is that everything UBI creates falls short.. I don't think i'll be getting anything published or developed by UBI ever again..(execpt for beyond good and evil 2) the only props i'll give them is the first prince of persia, and assasin's creeds 2 art collection found in the game.. Sry ubi, move on to movies maybe you'll do better there... you tend to create great pre rendered stuff to create hype... Why don't you try to add pre-rendered cinematic in to your games instead of pre-rendering for advertising only... (FALSE advertising that is...)

oh yeah I did a creed mini storyboard film, which I sent to ubisoft; for the IFC contest years back; of a 'creed being the real killer of hitler and made it look like a suicide, so lets hope this is going to be their version of my suggestion, that would be cool....kinda

I dunno sounds like over kill to me; as long as they don't step on the toes of other companies stories and just put a 'creed spin on it. Like doing a sniper version of saboteur; that's kinda lame and rip offish, even though saboteur wasn't that successful; but It could turn out ok.

This really necessary? Assassins Creed didn't have much of a good story. To put it like this it's like Dan Brown wrote it, if he had even less writing talent, and didn't do his research well.
