Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
That’s right! Carn Dûm, baby!
Distributed along with the game will be a two-part comic book! Produced by DC, it will be written by Brian Wood! This is totally exciting, but to get it you must pre-order the game at Toys R ‘Us for part 1, or buy it through Amazon, with part 2.
According to WB, gamers will gain access to parts 1 and 2 of the comic by pre-ordering War in the North at Toys R’ Us, while Amazon is offering part 2 only. There’s currently no word where the comic will be made available, though DC’s ComiXology app is a logical choice. There’s also no word on a specific release date, pricing for the comic for those without pre-orders, or whether the series consists of more than these two chapters.
For this part, Wood explained his part of it on his blog:
THAT SAID it was a fun job. I wish I could have written more than the 16 pages of script I did, but like I said, its not up to me. I love LOTR and nothing would make me happier than to write a regular comic for general release. But as far as I know, and I’m only going off the info in the above links, this is a digital-only incentive promo comic available to people who pre-order the video game from Amazon or Toys R Us.
We would give anything to see Brian Wood write a comic book called DAIN OF THE IRON HILLS.
Or ELLADAN & ELROHIR: ARNOR RANGERS.
Colleen Doran would draw either of those in a heart beat,
What would be your favored LoTR spin-off comic?
