Konami announces Metal Gear comic

Konami and IDW Publishing plan to release the first volume of a new Metal Gear Solid comic book series later this year.


Konami and IDW Publishing have recently announced that they will be publishing the first volume of a comic book adaptation of Metal Gear Solid in September. Ashley Wood, whose previous credits include work on the Spawn comics, has been appointed as the artist for the comic written by Kris Oprisko, who is perhaps best known for producing the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation comic scenarios.

"Personally, I have always been a fan of Mr. Ashley Wood," said Hideo Kojima, director and producer of the Metal Gear Solid series and vice president of Konami Computer Entertainment Japan. "I am very glad that Metal Gear Solid will be made into a comic with his talented artwork. I have a lot of confidence in the people at IDW Publishing, who understand the world of Metal Gear Solid. I have great hope for this new development of the series through the work of these people"
