Saturday, following Dark Horse Comics recent success with video game adaptation comics (The Last of Us: American Dreams); the publisher announced a partnership with CCP Games for a new mini-series based on the upcoming EVE: Valkyrie game.
In development at CCP’s Newcastle studio, EVE: Valkyrie is a multiplayer dogfighting shooter set in the EVE universe that uses virtual reality to give players the sense of being real pilots in EVE Online spaceships. It is based on the EVE-VR tech demo that won several major awards at E3 2013.
This four-issue mini-series will be written by Brian Wood (Star Wars, DMZ) and illustrated by Eduardo Francisco (Captain Midnight). It’s been a busy week for Wood, who was announced as the new writer on Spawn and gave details on ending his book The Massive.
