Kane and Lynch Comic coming
The mad minds behind DC are taking the opportunity on this oneâ€¦
Square Enix and IO Interactive have confirmed that they are going to have a partnership with DC Comics to produce a comic book series based on Kane & Lynch. Square Enix have stated that the comic will be violent and not suitable for the fainthearted, the brutal storyline explores some of Kane & Lynchâ€™s criminal past. The comic will be produced by DCâ€™s WildStorm imprint with the first issue launching this August.
â€œWe could not be happier about this partnership and expansion into comics. Who better to work with than DC Comics?â€ said Niels JÃ¸rgensen, general manager of IO Interactive. â€œWe hope the comic book world is ready for the violent mayhem of Kane & Lynch.â€
â€œKane & Lynch are two of the most interesting videogame characters I have ever seen,â€ said Hank Kanalz of DC Comics. â€œI think this new series will show the diversity of our line of books, as our creators capture the essence of these two criminals.â€
The comic book series is being penned by Ian Edginton. For those who donâ€™t read comics or donâ€™t know Ian Edginton you’ll be happy to know that he has been in the comic scene for over two decades and worked with DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Heavy Metal, Top Cow and others.
He also is best known for his work on Aliens, Predator, Terminator, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who and Torchwood. Chirs Mitten will also be taking up the opportunity with the comic. Chris has worked on the comic book serious WASTELAND and he will be producing the art work for Kane & Lynch.
If that isnâ€™t already enough then the New York times best selling artist Ben Templesmith who known for his 30 days of night and Fell. He will be working on the cover artwork for the comic. Sounds like a good team since they all understand the illustation style and how Kane and Lynch look and should feel.
The comic will follow the story of Kane & Lynch: Dead men basing around the events between then and Kane and Lynch: Dog days.
