I’m a big gamer, so I am a big fan of the recent video-game-to-comic-book phenomenon. One that I’m particularly interested in getting my hands on is Gears of War. GoW is one of the highest selling console games ever, and with the second game on November 7th, this is the perfect time to whet my appetite.
The opening six-issue arc of this new ongoing series bridges the end of the first Gears of War game and the start of the second one, following the Fenix and Delta Squad in the battle against the Locust.
I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to find out what happened after the Lightmass Bombing and how Locust reacted. Hopefully this series will answer some questions that were left unanswered at the end of the first game.
The first issue of Gears of War is scheduled to ship October 8th.
UPDATE: This awesome series has now been collected into trade paperback and hardcover formats, take a look at our Gears of War Graphic Novels
