Exclusive Preview | ‘Assassin’s Creed’ # 1

Titan Comics and Ubisoft have big plans for Assassin’s Creed in 2017, and they’re gonna kick off the year with a new series that brings together characters from both the games and the previous comics!

Writers Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel are teaming up with artist Jose Holder for the new Assassin’s Creed ongoing series, which will be continuing the Phoenix Project storyline from the  games. To face a common enemy, Charlotte De La Cruz and Black Cross will be joined by Galina Voronina, Kiyoshi Takakura, and Arend Schut as a super team of assassins. But even that impressive lineup may not be able to halt a new world order from seizing total control.

Today, CraveOnline is debuting two exclusive pages from the Assassin’s Creed comic, which are the first time that they’ve been seen in color. Click on the image to see the doublepage splash at a bigger size.
