Dynamite and Ubisoft Team Up for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Echoes!
Dynamite Entertainment has announced it is teaming up with Ubisoft to release Tom Clancy‘s Splinter Cell Echoes, a thrilling comic book series based on the award-winning Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell video game franchise that has sold more than 27 million copies worldwide since its introduction in 2002. The project is written by Nathan Edmondson and art by Marc Laming.
Splinter Cell Echoes takes place between the events of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist. The comic book series bridges the gap between the two games with a realistic, original story that sets the tone for the opening events in Splinter Cell Blacklist.
Sam Fisher, once a Splinter Cell–a clandestine elite operative operating in the shadows of the NSA–is now retired. His enemies, however, are not. Haunted by dreams and memories of his past, he struggles to put his life back together. But when a mysterious terrorist organization called KROWE begins pursuing targets around the globe, Sam’s expertise is needed to uncover their endgame and stop them before the deadly plot unfolds.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Echoes was previously only available in a limited print run as part of the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Collector’s Edition. Dynamite will release the project as a four issue mini-series shipping July to October, with a collection to be published shortly thereafter. The project will feature new covers by Marc Laming and include bonus behind-the-scenes material in each issue from Ubisoft.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Echoes #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ May Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release on July 2nd, 2014.
