EA and Image Comics are going to me making a Dead Space comic book based on the upcoming video game. The comic will be a prequel to the video games story, and they are going to make 6 total books for it thus far. The story tells about a mining company in space (more than likely the ship you have to check out in the game) that comes across an ancient alien from the dark rocks they uncover while mining. The 1st issue will be for sale March 3rd for just $2.99.
“The comic will be written and illustrated by Ben Templesmith and written by Antony Johnston. Ben Templesmith is an Australian commercial artist best known for his work in the American comic book industry — most notably Fell with writer Warren Ellis, published by Image Comics, and 30 Days of Night with writer Steve Niles published by IDW Publishing. The 30 Days of Night novel provoked a bidding war between film studios for the movie rights when the story was pitched a second time with Templesmith’s artwork. Ben has been nominated for multiple Eisner Awards three years in a row for his comic work. He has also created book covers, movie posters, trading cards, and concept work for film.” Read the full article text
