After helping create one of the most recognizable video game properties in Gears of War, designer Cliff Bleszinski is turning his attention to an entirely new endeavor. Cliffy B is making the transition into comic books, announcing that he'll team with writer Alex De Campi and artist Sandy Jarrell on a new sci-fi miniseries called Scrapper.

"As a lifelong fan of comics it's an honor to actually create one with Alex," Bleszinski said via press release. "Scrapper comes from the heart; first, the loss of my Aussie Teddy and then finding puppy love again with our Pomsky Lady. I truly hope everyone enjoys this deeply personal work."

Image Comics will launch Scrapper, which . The story follows a stray dog named Scrapper and his struggle against the totalitarian forces of a domed city. He'll join up with his animal companions to try and save his home, but Scrapper will have to face some harsh truths and harrowing dangers along the way.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
