With New York Comic-Con 2014 in full swing, DC Entertainment has announced a wide variety of upcoming plans for graphic novel devourers to look forward to, but one in particular should provide some crossover appeal to the fighting game community. According to recent news from the publisher themselves, DC Comics will begin releasing a series based around NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat X early next year.
After seeing continued success with their Injustice: Gods Among Us franchise, which utilizes DC-owned properties like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, the comics powerhouse is set to help NetherRealm provide a narrative lead-up to the tenth installment of their popular fighting game series before its release in April.
While details are scarce despite the fact this series will be a prequel to the Mortal Kombat X storyline, a few pieces of art depicting Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, and an unnamed Red Dragon clan member have been released for fans to salivate over before the comic officially launches.
Mortal Kombat X will be penned by Shawn Kittelson and brought to visual life by Dexter Soy and Ivan Reis. As a Digital First series, it will initially debut online before appearing in physical form.
Be on the look out for this comic line to begin sometime in January.
