The Partnership Between Dark Horse and Bioware
Dark Horse comic book publisher announced that they will be publishing a new book, Mass Effect: Invasion, the latest installment in the comic book series. The graphic novel will be released on October 19. It will tie directly into Mass Effect 3, which will be released on March 6, 2012.
Mass Effect: Invasion is an upcoming four-issue comic mini-series that will follow Aria T'Loak, Pirate Queen of Omega as her station comes under attack from a new threat unleashed by the human-survivalist organization Cerberus.
The series will be written by BioWare lead writer Mac Walters, scripted by John Jackson Miller, and drawn by Omar Francia, with contributions from cover designer Massimo Carnevale. Mass Effect: Invasion will show why the planet of Omega is important, and how it is a large part of the game.
Invasion takes place between Mass Effect 2 and 3, bridging the gap between the two games.
Dark Horse also recently discussed the release of the Old Republic comic series, Lost Suns. This story follows two previously released Old-Republic comic books about a spy from the republic who is the son of a Jedi grandmaster, but not a Jedi himself.
The panel then began discussing the relationship between BioWare and Dark Horse. The two teams discussed how the relationship between them is autonomous yet they both have the ability to collaborate with each other. The panel, which took place at Comic-Con in San Diego, was comprised of Jeremy Atkins, public relations of Dark Horse and Dave Marshall BioWare editor.
Dark Horse said that the partnership has given the gaming community and the graphic novel community a place to join and collaborate together. It has opened more doors for both communities.
