    Default Video Game Comics Discussion

    I figured there might be some of you out there like me that actually collects the comic series that go along with video games you play. Just to name a few, Metal Gear Solid, Dead Rising, Resident Evil, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, Brothers in Arms, and Dead Space all have comics that further their story. If this thread takes off, I'll compile a list of all the collected editions for video game-related comics. So, is there anything on the horizon that you're looking forward to?

    I don't usually but I very much intend to pick up "The Last of Us: American Dreams" by Faith Erin Hicks. Love her work and I can never not support a local comics artist. I don't even have that much interest in the game as it's a PS3 exclusive but I do want to read the comic.

    I'm a sucker for a good tie in. I've got a couple of the Halos and World of Warcrafts with plans to track down the Uncharted one

    I found the World of Warcraft one to be not too bad, but I've not read it in years (sold my copies) and have little wish to try again.

    I must say, however, the Mirror's Edge comic wasn't all that bad.

    Thank you, kind Sir and may God bless your soul.

    EDIT: BTW is it an expansion of the story or an adaptation of the video games?

    I still miss the Tomb Raider comics, from Top Cow, and wouldn't mind a new series.

    Dark Horse had some digital exclusive Dragon Age, Darksiders and Prototype 2 comics a while ago. The Dragon Age one was good, but a comic about a video game where the player chooses what happens, is probably not the best choice. In my play-through the main character of the comic wasn't even alive. The prototype one was entertaining enough but nothing spectacular.

    Has anyone read the Darksiders one?

    I have not actually flipped through my copy yet but it is an adaption of the games but contains more detail than the game itself. It gets to focus on more stuff.

    So I've been trying to hunt down the Assassin's Creed: The Fall TPB but, considering one just sold for like $65 on ebay, I opted to get the UbiWorkshop edition of ACIII and get the Subject 4 book that contains both The Fall and The Chain together. Has anyone here read The Chain or The Fall?

    Just remembered, Dark horse has the Mass Effect comics. The ones I've read are all good, I think invasion was the best one. I've read all except Homeworlds, any one read that one?

    EDIT: DH just released a new digital exclusive, Mass Effect: Blasto: Eternity is Forever, friggin' sweet
