Epic Games and DC Plan Gears of War Comic Book

DC Comics announced today that it will team with developer Epic Games to publish a comic book series based on Gears of War (PC, X360), slated to debut in October on the DC-owned Wildstorm imprint.

"We are thrilled to be working with DC Comics to further bring to life the Gears of War universe," said Epic Games president Michael Capps. "A lot of our developers are huge comic fans, and have loved the personas and chronicles unique to DC Comics since childhood."

DC Comics said that more details about the series, including the creative team tapped to produce the Gears of War comic series, will be announced at a later date.
