Ubisoft is a company based in France, a country that has a solid respect for comic books. French comics include creations that are even known in the US including Tintin, Asterix and XIII (which Ubisoft adapted into a cel-shaded shooter a few years ago). Now their upcoming sequel Assassin's Creed 2 will be getting some marketing back-up from a French-made comic.
Bleeding Cool has three pages from the upcoming Assassin's Creed comic which will be published in France on November 13, a few days before Assassin's Creed 2 ships to stores on November 17. The preview pages from the comic, written by Eric Corbeyran and drawn by Djilalli Defaux, seem to show the assassin in the days of the Roman Empire rather than the Middle Ages setting of the game sequel. Hopefully some comic book publisher in the US can bring this comic to our shores.
