Dark Horse Comics Working on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Comic
Dark Horse Comics recently confirmed that they’re working on a prequel comic book series about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla known as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory. The series will unfold over three issues that are written by Cavan Scott, illustrated by Martin Túnica and colored by Michael Atiyeh. The game itself won’t be releasing until November 17th, but the first issue of the comic will be released on October 21st. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be releasing for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC later this year.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory will be a prequel story that focuses on Eivor’s backstory leading to the release of the game. A description for the three-issue series says it will focus on raids from neighboring kingdoms, with Bloodshed and mayhem erupting when Eivor tries to turn the tides of battle. “But will her victory be a blessing to her clan or a terrible curse? Elsewhere, another Viking searches for a different kind of prize, one of crucible steel.” It’ll be interesting to see how Eivor is set up for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed title and how fans of the series will benefit by reading the comics ahead of time.
“Prepare for the comics prequel to Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla!” said a recent Tweet from the official Dark Horse Comics Twitter account. “By Cavan Scott, Martín Túnica and Michael Atiyeh, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory #1 (of 3) strikes comic shops October 21 & is available for pre-order at comic shops.” We’re looking forward to the release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla but these prequel comics will likely fill the void between October and November while unfolding some of the plot we can expect from the next-gen Assassin’s Creed game.
