DC To Publish Gears Of War Comic Book?

The series will bridge the gap between the first game and its upcoming sequel (Gears of War 2).
Epic Games and DC Comics have joined forces to produce a comic book series based on the Gears of War video game franchise.

The series is slated to debut in October, a month before the scheduled release of Gears of War 2 for Xbox 360. DC hasn't announced a creative team for the comic series yet, but it will be published by the company's WildStorm imprint.

"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."

There isn't much in the way of details, but the storyline will apparently bridge the gap between Delta Squad's adventures in the first game and the continued fight against the Locust horde in the Gears of War 2.

"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 and General Manager of 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."
