Yet another awesome signing at Jim Hanley’s Universe (JHU). On Wednesday they had Fred Van Lente and Dennis Calero on site, promoting their latest Titan Comics release: Assassin’s Creed: Templars.
Based on the hit video game, it’s story focuses on the Assassins’ nemesis the Templars. It introduces a new character, the Black Cross, an effective killer, who is just as deadly as any member of the Assassin order. Add a beautifully drawn noirish 1927 China setting, and this book sells itself. Don’t just take my word for it, go out and buy it.
Fred Van Lente is a great writer I’ve been following for sometime, and he was even kind enough to sign my hard copy edition of Action Philosophers. If he keeps writing, I promise to keep on thinking.
And a special thanks, to Dennis Calero, who not to be outdone, threw in this awesome Black Cross sketch. I’m in for the next four issues.
