News: Kane & Lynch DC comic

I have said to people I know before that when you get past the shoddiness of the first Kane & Lynch title, the bad graphics, the dated control system, the frustrating levels and the average voice acting that there was a decent concept behind the characters and the story.Well now we may get a decent chance to explore that avenue. DC Comics has announced a partnership between IO Interactive and their wildstorm branch.


This is actually going to the top of my ‘want now’ list as I have said that if someone could flesh out that world with more depth and better writing I would be right along for the ride.

Comic book legend Ian Edginton will be writing the series which is a great choice as he has a lot of experience with fleshing out stories (Aliens, Predator, AVP) and the visual side will be handled by Chris Mitten (Wasteland) with cover art by Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night).

All of these choices really reflect the visceral and bloody style that Kane & Lynch is all about so the concept is sound and I will keep my eyes  on this one.

Thoughts?

    I dont understand the fascination with second rate games, the first was shit, plain and simple, the second looks no better. Why make a comic out of it? Because it's violent? Is that the only reason? There's so many awesome games that would rock as comics… No thanks.

    yeah but if you think about the story itself.. as in a skitzophrenic with a split personality that wields guns and give that a good writer.. could be awesome! As I said … the game is shit, but this man made good comics out of AVP… so have a little faith…
    oh and for the record 2 looks as bad as one
