Dark Horse Comics is reported to be releasing a Call of Duty: Black Ops III prequel comic book. The prequel book written Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) and artist Marcelo Ferreira (Transformers, TMNT).
"A prequel to the highly-anticipated game, the Call of Duty®: Black Ops III comic book series follows an elite group of soldiers as they wage a secret war across a futuristic war-torn world transformed by technology," Dark Horse detailed in a press release. "In the bullet-ridden first issue, the team infiltrates Tashkent, Uzbekistan to take down a double agent . . . but as they close in, they uncover something much more sinister at hand."
You will be able to pick up a Call of Duty: Black Ops III exclusive mini-comic at San Diego Comic-Con next week (either the Dark Horse Comics booth (#2615) or the Activision installation) Also there will be a "Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Zombies World Reveal" panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 9 from 1:00pm - 2:00pm.
Acoording to Hanna, "A lot of the appeal of Call of Duty is in how it puts you directly in the action. That’s pretty difficult to replicate in a graphic story format, so the aim in a comic adaptation is to provide more of what you don’t get a lot of in the game. We’re talking character development and back-story, and a more involved personal interaction between the characters. Also, it’s possible to really flesh out the story line, create running sub-plots, and explain technical details that aren’t that easy to convey in the game environment."
The Call of Duty: Black Ops II game will be released November 6 while the comic book will be released November 4.
