And the trend continues…this time with Bioware, a studio of EA, and Dark Horse Comics announcing a new comic book series based on the hit game Mass Effect. The sci-fi comic will act as a prequel that will bridge together Mass Effect and the mysterious beginning of Mass Effect 2. The comic entitled Mass Effect: Redemption, cause it sounds cool, is scheduled to launch January 6, 2010. The story will be penned by Lead Writer Mac Walters at BioWare. While John Jackson Miller (Star Wars KOTOR, The Invincible Iron Man) will do the scripting and Omar Francia (Star Wars Legacy) will handle the drawing. The 4 part series will explore new locations, aliens and enemies of course.
