Assassin’s Creed is an action role-playing video game series developed and published by Ubisoft® that follows the ongoing conflict between the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order throughout various moments in history around the world. Established as one of the best-selling video game series of all time, every Assassin’s Creed game is set in a new era, with a fictional exploration of important historical touchstones across various cultures.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Blood Brothers is a manhua by Feng Zi Su set in the same world as the most recent game release, following new characters in the Viking invasion of England in the 9th century.
Not long before the exploits of Eivor Wolf-Kissed, Jarl Stensson and his sons, Ulf and Björn, make their way to England at the behest of Halfdan Ragnarsson and Ivarr the Boneless. Filled with excitement, confidence and bloodlust, the three vikings are eager to go to war against Aelfred the Great and his Anglo Saxon army. But they would do well not to underestimate what awaits them on those green shores…
Told in one complete volume, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Blood Brothers can be read chapter by chapter exclusively on the INKR digital platform from April 2021, with the full digital volume available in June 2021, and the print edition scheduled for August 2022.
Assassin’s Creed Dynasty is an original story set in ancient China, created by Xu Xian Zhe.
In the 14th year of the Tianbao Era (CE 755) An Lushan, a military governor with ties to the Knights Templar, leads his elite corps to rebel against the Tang Dynasty, and the ill-prepared Tang empire falters under the threat. The two capitals Luoyang and Chang’an fall and China falls under the oppression of the cruel An Lushan.
As the Tang dynasty starts to crumble, Li E, a shady Assassin trained by the Hidden Ones in the far West, teams up with Tang loyalists to turn the tide and save both the dynasty and the country from this crisis.
Released as five volumes through 2021 and into 2022, Assassin’s Creed Dynasty can be read chapter by chapter exclusively on the INKR digital platform from May 2021, with the first full volume to be released digitally from September 2021, and the print edition scheduled for January 2022.
