The crew of the Crusader will find more than they bargained for on the frozen wastes of E.D.N. III in this “Lost Planet 3” prequel from “DmC: Devil May Cry – The Vergil Chronicles” writer Izu.
After the jump, check out some exclusive pages from the Titan Comics release.
Capcom has teamed up with publisher Titan Comics again (the publisher released the “DmC” comic earlier this year), working with writer Izu and artist Massimo Dall’Oglio. Currently available as a digital-only release, the two-part “First Colony” tells the story of the first human settlers on the icy planet of E.D.N. III and their disastrous encounter with the hostile local fauna–the Akrid.
It functions as a kind of prequel to a prequel, with “Lost Planet 3″ providing backstory for the conflict between multi-planet mining corporation NEVEC and the rebels who have taken control of the energy-rich E.D.N. III.
Titan Comics is releasing “Lost Planet: First Colony” digitally via ComiXology, with a planned hardcover release on December 31. Meanwhile, “DmC: Devil May Cry: The Vergil Chronicles” is available this week in hardcover.
“Lost Planet 3″ is available now for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC from Capcom.
