The popular video game franchise Assassin’s Creed has been a mainstay on consoles for over a decade, with the first game being released in the bygone year 2007. With the impending installment Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla set to release in November 2020, it comes as no surprise that Dark Horse Comics made this announcement of a prequel today:
Blades clash in this prequel to Ubisoft’s next hit video game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Written by Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures, Vikings), illustrated by Martin Tunica, and colored by Michael Atiyeh (The Orville, Dragon Age: Blue Wraith), Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory takes readers back to a Mid-9thCentury Norway.
Eivor, a Viking warrior, observes a village raided by a neighboring kingdom. Bloodshed and mayhem erupt as she seizes the attack in her own favor—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 . . . Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory #1 (of three) will be in comic shops on October 21, 2020. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
Be sure to check out The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Deluxe Edition, which will be hitting shelves later this year timed with the release of the game. The books are available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, TFAW, and at your local comic shop.
