Archaia and Meteor Announce Rubicon
After their successful collaboration on the video game turned graphic novel Hawken: Genesis, Archaia and Meteor Entertainment have announced Rubicon, a hardcover, original graphic novel that re-imagines one of the greatest movie epics of all time: The Seven Samurai. Rubicon is the story of a paramilitary SEAL team who defend a remote mountain farming village in Afghanistan from the torment of marauding Taliban. Rubicon blends timely themes of fate, hope, and courage with relentless action into a triumphant tale of honor won with loyalty and death. This powerfully realized book is written by New York Times best-selling graphic novel author and Meteor Entertainment president Mark Long, from an idea by Oscar-winning writer/director Christopher McQuarrie, and from a story by SEAL Team VI and Red Cell veteran, Dan Capel. It’s illustrated by newcomer Mario Stilla. In addition, the book features a Foreword by New York Times best-selling author and the original Commanding Officer of Seal Team VI, Richard Marcinko.
The Rubicon hardcover graphic novel will also come packed with a pouch envelope containing exclusive artifacts and creative collateral from the world of Rubicon, including a reproduction of the tactical map the team uses, commendations and citations, and private correspondence.
Limited editions will also be available at the Archaia booth at San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con, while supplies last.
Rubicon will encompass 128 pages and retail for $24.95.
