Posted by Betsy Gomez on August 11, 2017 @ 10:07 pm CT
The Mafia III: The Rise and Fall of Sal Marcano video game will get a graphic novel adaptation courtesy of Frank Tieri and Richard Pace. J.H. Williams III (Promethea, Batwoman) provides the cover for the April 2018 release.
Tieri is also scripting the adventures of John McClane in Die Hard, a new comic series based on the hit movie franchise that kicks off by delving into McClane’s rookie year. The title is set for stores in May 2018.
Bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson (Dune, Star Wars) will write XCOM 2, based on the video game that pits human rebels against an alien occupation. Michael Penick will draw the graphic novel, which will be in stores in June 2018.
Insight Editions launched the Insight Comics imprint earlier this year (see “Insight Launches Graphic Novel Imprint”). The division has two OGNs scheduled for release this fall (see “Two Very Different Heroines Face Down Dystopias”).
