Found this sweet nugget of awesome on John Jackson Miller's website. Mass Effect:
Redemption is written by Bioware's Mac Walters, drawn by Omar Francia,
and scripted by John Jackson Miller!! You can check out Dark Horse's press releae here. But here's a look at what to expect:
"BioWare™, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and Dark Horse Comics today announced a new comic book series based on Mass Effect™, the blockbuster sci-fi action videogame that IGN.com rated the #1 Xbox 360™ game of all time. In Mass Effect: Redemption, the story takes readers through the treacherous events leading up to Mass Effect 2 which opens with galactic hero Commander Shepard having mysteriously gone missing and left to fight for survival. What unfolds next will expose readers to new locations, aliens and extended storyline in the Mass Effect universe. Mass Effect: Redemption is scheduled to launch on January 6, 2010."
Dark Horse adds from Mac Walters: "Fans of Mass Effect are going to be pleasantly shocked by the events in these comics," Mac said. "We worked very closely with Dark Horse to make sure this story was built in to the Mass Effect 2 arc, right from the ground up. Reading the series won't just add to your experience of the universe, it will change the way you look at Mass Effect 2 . . . and beyond."
Mac and Omar will be autographing a Comic-con exclusive Mass Effect signing card at the Dark Horse booth (#2615) on July 24th at 4:00pm - 5:00pm at Comic-Con International 2009 in San Diego, Calif. Be sure to stop by!
