Ian Edgington and Cam Adams Show Their Killer Instinct

New York Times best-selling author, and multi Eisner-award nominee Ian Edgington and artist Cam Adams have been tapped as the creative team to bring the world of the hit-game franchise Killer Instinct to the pages of comics for the first time ever! Thanks to the new partnership between Dynamite Entertainment and Double Helix Studios, the new series is slated to launch on September 13th, and will provide fans of the game with epic new adventures set within the its stunning game-play universe!

The Shadow Lord Gargos has been defeated, but the battle to save humankind from his Astral invasion has taken a terrible toll on the Earth. Our world lies in ruin, and a sinister new power called the Coven has risen from the ashes, vying with the megacorporation Ultratech to rule the shattered nations. The heroes Kim Wu and Jago-their Astral powers weakened by their devastating war against Gargos-must band together with the scattered remnants of the Night Guard to forge a pathway into the Astral Plane. Here, in the birthplace of The Shadow Lord and The Guardians, festers the secret malevolence that threatens to destroy them all…and enslave the world forever.

Killer Instinct is based on the popular video game franchise originally released in 1994. The fighting game developed by Double Helix Games is published by Microsoft Studios. The 2013 game serves as a reboot of the franchise after a 17-year long hiatus since its last title, Killer Instinct 2, was released in 1996.

The debut issue of Killer Instinct features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of Yildiray Cinar, Jonathan Lau, interior artist Cam Adams, and Udon. Limited variant editions in “Black & White” and “Virgin” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.
