Dark Horse has released the first of three Dungeon Siege comics. The digital series serves as a prequel to the upcoming 360, PC, and PS3 role-playing game from Square Enix and Obsidian. Gamers looking to dig into the lore can delve deeper into the backstories of three of the four playable characters, with the fourth being the focus of a pack-in comic. The weekly series features writing by Jeremy Barlow (Star Wars: Rebellion) and art from Iban Coello (Iron Man: Iron Protocols) and Sergio Abad (Transformers: Prime).
The first issue, available here on Dark Horse’s site, centers around an Azunite-controlled village whose citizens encounter a mysterious stranger as they battle an approaching forest fire.
