Comic Book Bonanza: Mass Effect, Prince of Persia and Singularity Adaptations Announced

Hot on the heels of yesterday's Dante's Inferno comic news--and in the run-up to Comic-Con--no less than three comic book adaptations of video games were announced today.

Mass Effect: Redemption by Dark Horse Comics will bridge the game between the first game and sequel Mass Effect 2, authored by ME2 script writer Mac Walters and drawn by Star Wars Legacy artist Omar Francia. The first issue will arrive on January 6 2010.

Raven Software's Singularity is to receive a graphic novel exploring the mysterious Cold War experiments which gave rise to the the shooter's time-shifting shenanigans. Coming from Twistory Studios and Image Publishing, it's due following Singularity's release--recently delayed until March 2010 to avoid competing with Modern Warfare 2.

Lastly, Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner is penning six new stories for a 128-page graphic novel which paves the way for Disney's upcoming movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. A variety of artists will illustrate the anthology, including Seaguy's Cameron Stewart and Tommy Lee Edwards of Marvel 1985.
