Titan Comics has announced that it’s launching an all-new Assassin’s Creed mini-series in September! The four-part comic series is penned by Eisner-nominated Ian Edginton (X-Force, HG Wells’ War Of The Worlds) and ties directly into the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed young adult book series, Last Descendants by Matthew J Kirby, to be published by Scholastic on 30 August 2016. Fans of the Assassin’s Creed video game will also be able to revisit the Victorian London setting of Assassin’s Creed Syndicates.
The first issue of Assassin’s Creed: Last Descendants – Locus will publish on 21 September, and expands Titan Comics’ Assassin’s Creed comics line, which already includes Assassin’s Creed: Assassins and Assassin’s Creed: Templars.
Ian Edginton teams up with rising star artist, Caspar Wijngaard (Image Comics’ Limbo) for Last Descendants – Locus. Readers will follow the story of Sean, a teenager caught up in the Assassin’s Creed and Templar conflict in present day, as he peers back into the memories of his ancestor Tommy Greyling and gets to experience the sordid squalor of Victorian London (as seen in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate). A captivating adventure unfolds, with Greyling hunting for the answers to a mystery that could change the world.
The debut issue of Last Descendants – Locus comes with six variant covers: four art covers by artists Caspar Wijngaard (Image Comics’ Limbo), Valeria Favoccia, Ian Culbard (A Study In Scarlet) and Verity Glass (Doctor Who); a “novel” variant; and a blank sketch cover.
