The lights are on
It’s almost hard to walk into a comic book store nowadays and not give yourself a paper cut on video game-related books. Some of them are good and some of them are anything but. We’re hoping that Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed tie-in, called Assassin’s Creed: The Fall, is the former. The series looks to bring all the historical and political drama fans expect, while introducing the franchise to an entirely new setting, 19th century Russia.
Assassin’s Creed: The Fall follows Russian assassin Nikolai Orelov’s journey to steal an ancient artifact of immense power from the Templars. Along the way, Orelov encounters historical figures such as the ruthless Tsar Alexander III. Just like the games, there will be a modern tale running in parallel to the historical one, as a troubled young drifter named Daniel Cross copes with unsettling visions of his ancestor’s past.
The first of the three issues releases on November 10th, but check out this video featuring comic creators Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl as they talk about this exciting project.

I hope this is good I read the Silent Hill comics and they are awful
this comic looks cool i like concept of an AC in csarist russia huurah for mosin nagant armed assain and also kill rasputin that ***
Interesting looks very interesting
I can't wait. :)
19th century Russia was around when the Romanov's fell right? Or was that a bit later?
wow i cant wait to read it. he kinda gives a hint at the end that the next game might be in russia or maybe the guy that the russian assassin is related to is subject 16
anybody else notice behind the guy with the glasses was someone playing assassin's creed brotherhood? pretty sweet
This comic appears to be rally good. I hope they make a game based on Tsarist Russia. That would be incredible. I don't think many games have tapped that time period.
I'll pick this up the same day as I buy brotherhood.
Brotherhood is going to be so good, all of these games are really fun.
This just doesn't seem like it would fit well with the dynamic of a comic book. Not to say I hope they fail, just that the game fits an interactive experience so much better. Maybe its just me, but I think it would loose some of its charm.
cool something to put on my book list
