A new ongoing Assassin’s Creed series from Titan Comics will be released later this month. Templars will be the second monthly series from the publisher set in the Assassin’s Creed universe.

Assassin’s Creed: Templars is set in Shanghai in 1927. The conflict between the Chinese Communist Party and the Nationalist government will set the backdrop for the series. Fred Van Lente, the writer of Marvel Zombies 3 and 4, is handling the script. Dennis Calero, the illustrator behind Marvel’s 2006 X-Factor series, will pencil the book.

Assassin’s Creed: Templars hits shelves on March 23. For a first look at the book’s interior, check out the gallery below.

Assassin's Creed is also receiving a movie adaptation, which is currently in post-production. For $600, you can also get a statue of the film’s lead character with your ticket.
