Developer teams up with Batman property-owner for Gears of War comic

DC Comics is to make a comic based on Epic's Gears of War games.

The two have signed a deal to produce the book for DC's WildStorm label.

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

"The Gears of War storyline and characters that millions of gamers have come to cherish will be a perfect fit under the WildStorm imprint."

Hank Kanalz, VP – general Manager at WildStorm added: "We have an opportunity to work closely with Epic to add to the canon of the Gears of War mythos, so you can imagine how excited we all are.

"Epic sets the bar very high, in graphics, story, and gameplay — and expect no less from our series, starting with our lead-in arc that fills in the gaps between the first game and the upcoming sequel."
