Upcoming God Of War Comic Explores Kratos' Childhood

Why is Kratos so angry? Sure, he murdered his own family, and was bound to the service of an unjust god, but his rage issues clearly started well before either of these events. In a new six-issue miniseries from WildStorm, Kratos' Spartan childhood is explored. This story will reveal the early tragedies and formative events of his untold past. Was he bullied on the schoolyard? Was he socially awkward? Did he have braces? I predict his origin story will be exactly like Teen Wolf's...only with more scowling. Sony hasn't locked in a release date for God of War III yet, but Wildstorm currently has the first issue of the God of War comic set for March 31. The Mass Effect comic has been great so far, and God of War appears to be in just as good of hands with the creative team of Marv Wolfman (words), and Andrea Sorrentino (art).
