Assassins Creed Visionaries #1 (of 4) Cvr A Connecting (MR)
This is the first of three connecting covers by Yanick Paquette, the Eisner-nominated, Shuster Awards Winner, and #1 New-York Times best-selling comics artist known for Batman, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman: Earth One, INCAL and more. The Assassin's Creed® franchise was created over 15 years ago, so what better way to celebrate it than to give renowned comic artists complete creative freedom to share their own, personal visions of Ubisoft's hidden blade-wielding, parkour-running, century-spanning Assassin's Creed®? Assassin's Creed: Visionaries will be the first Assassin's Creed comic adaptation to debut before a video game release. Each issue will feature two stories by today's top talents in the comics and pop culture industry and all assassin characters will be created by the artists themselves. In this first issue, celebrated artist RAFAEL ALBUQUERQUE (American Vampire, Blue Beetle, Detective Comics, Prodigy) is joined by writer Ale Santos and colorist Marcelo Maiolo to tell the story of an Assassin chasing Nazi officers, now hiding in Argentina. Also, European writer/artist STÉPHANE LOUIS (Tessa Agent Intergalactique, Carmen McCallum, Aquablue) is joined by Véra Daviet to weave us a tale set in a future where the Templars are on the verge, yet again, of eliminating the Assassin Brotherhood once and for all!
