Posted in Nifty Stuff with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2008 by B33

WildStorm (a branch of DC Comics)  will be unleashing  a 6 part graphic novel series which will utilize the universe of Resistance  and it’s primary protagonist named Nathan Hale. Mike Costa touts the writer credit, while Ramón Pérez will be at helm of the art. The issues are expected to cover the various events leading up to the beginning of the second title and serve as a direct tie-in to the game’s plotline.   The official synopsis follows below.

The best-selling Sony PlayStation 3 game comes to comics! Nathan Hale leads a desperate fight against the extraterrestrial Chimera as the invasion of America begins! Coinciding with the release of the highly-anticipated second game in the Resistance franchise, the miniseries, from writer Mike Costa (SECRET HISTORY OF THE AUTHORITY: HAWKSMOOR) is integral to the game story and helps further define this complex universe!

Issue one will hit stores on January 7, 2009 and issue two will be released on January 28, 2009, while the third issue is scheduled to be released on February 25, 2009. The release dates for issues four, five, and six have yet to be announced; at this time. Each installment is expected to run around 32 pages and will retail for $3.99. Fans might also recall that a digital copy of issue zero was placed within the “Collector’s Edition” of Resistance 2 as an extra. Overall, I’m intrigued and look forward to giving the series a shot, as I’ve enjoyed the amount of detail and effort put into the story of each game, respectively.
