Dark Horse Comics November updates

Dark Horse Comics has been on a roll of as of late, today we have a ton of new release information to pass along though.

First up! Dragon Age the digital comic series, we’re getting a 6 part event starting in February 2012 with issues priced at $0.99 each, quite a steal if they stack up to the quality of the Mass Effect releases so far. Readers will be able to follow Alistair, Isabela, and Varric on their latest adventure to Antiva, a land ruled by some of the deadliest foes they’ll face. More information is coming and we should have a preview sometime in January for the book. In the meantime, check out the current art for the book below.

Next we have a new project to be announced next week by Caitlín R. Kiernan of such fame as The Red Tree, Silk, A is for Alien and more. We only have the teaser art for that as well but the image title leads one to ponder if it’ll be a graphic adaptation of her work Alabaster… Check it out with the Mass Effect art and speculate for yourselves.

What happens when Nate Cosby, Evan Shaner and Rus Wooton walk into a room and start cranking out a comic? We’ll find out in Dark Horse Presents #9 with Buddy Cop and more. For those scratching their heads, Nate and Evan worked on The Storyteller and Rus Wooton is from Walking Dead fame. Expect some epic stories and twists in that issue when it drops in February as well.

EA / Bioware announce Dragon Age 2 for PS3/360/PC

Today RPG fans can go wild, Bioware brings official confirmation that Dragon Age 2 will be coming in March of 2011 to the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The latest story will take players into the role of Hawke a Blight survivor and hero set to transform the world.

Details are vague on the changes to the game for the sequel, noting only that the game will deliver the same epic story and a new bar for action. The key of course is that they still wish to keep original fans happy and familiar with the sequel instead of jumping beyond the target. New combat systems, improved graphics and storytelling are just some of the foundations to be focused on.

From EA/Bioware:

Dragon Age 2 thrusts players into the role of Hawke, a penniless refugee who rises to power to become the single most important character in the world of Dragon Age. Known to be a survivor of the Blight and the Champion of Kirkwall, the legend around Hawke’s rise to power is shrouded in myth and rumor. Featuring an all-new story spanning 10 years, players will help tell that tale by making tough moral choices, gathering the deadliest of allies, amassing fame and fortune, and sealing their place in history. The way you play will write the story of how the world is changed forever.
