PS: Comixology has unredacted their signing schedule by revealing that Eduardo Risso will be signing a poster for Amazon Game Studios’ upcoming multiplayer game Breakaway. The poster features on of the game’s primary playable characters, Argus.

Breakaway Game Description

Breakaway is a team battle sport for PC from Amazon Game Studios where two squads of four collide in intense competition. Seize the Relic and slam it into your opponent’s base to score! Make plays with your team by passing, juking, and dunking the Relic. Crush your enemies with magic and steel. Control the arena with game-changing buildables and outplay the other team. With so many different ways to play and win, Breakaway is never the same game twice.

Breakaway is in Alpha now, with tests every weekend. You can sign up to play athttps://playbreakaway.com/alpha

 Argus Character Description

Argus is one of the fabled Lost Immortals and the first architect of War. He is a noble and determined warrior with a unique bond to Wild Magic and his twin Infinity Swords are said to carve time and space as if they were physical objects.

In addition to groovy comic creator cards, the ComiXology booth will have a ton of signings, and the digital comics service will host several outstanding panels at this year’s SDCC – and that’s where you can get those nifty collectible comic creator cards!

Here’s a first look at the schedule. We had a chance to ask ComiXology CEO and co-founder David Steinberger about this year’s activities.

“This year, we are celebrating our 10-year anniversary at Comic-Con International with a whole host of activities. We have over 15 signings at our booth putting a spotlight on the incredible talent included in our exclusive convention give-away, Comic Book All Star Series 3 trading cards,” he told The Beat.  “We’re hosting 11 panels. This includes a Comic Book Movie Trivia panel I’m judging along with IMDb CEO Col Needham and hosted by Kevin Smith as well as an Elfquest tribute panel with Wendy and Richard Pini. We will also be co-sponsoring the CBLDF Welcome Party this year and, as always, co-sponsoring the Eisner Awards. Just tons of great things going on this year and I can’t wait to see everyone there!”
