Pretty cool news being reported on Friday. A Splinter Cell comic series is coming our way this summer from publisher Dynamite Entertainment. The series will showcase the events and exploits of Mr. Sam Fisher, and will take place between the game storylines of 2010’s Splinter Cell: Convinction and the recent Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
The series, subtitled Echoes, is being written by Nathan Edmondson who has a history with Marvel’s Black Widow and The Punisher series with art by Marc Laming. Speaking about the series, Edmondson says the story will be standalone, accessible to those who haven’t played the Splinter Cell games.
I just recently played my very first Splinter Cell game with Blacklist and I must admit, this universe has the potential for a fantastic spy-comic series. We shall see. (Source: GameInformer)
