Many players will be pleased to hear that Cryptic Studios plans to release a monthly City of Heroes comic book based on their upcoming MMORPG: City of Heroes. The events in the comic book will reflect the past month's activity in CoH. This is definitely an intriguing development, what better way to encourage the role-playing environment.
"The comic will be distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors Inc., produced by Blue King Studios, written by Rick Dakan, with art by Brandon McKinney (Switchblade Honey, Planet of the Capes) and colors by Moose Bauman (Action Comics, Green Lantern). City of Heroes subscribers will receive the comic book in the mail as part of their monthly service (a good reason to make sure your mailing address stays current!). The comic will also be available for purchase at your friendly neighborhood comic book storeÃ¢??for those who have not subscribed to the game, or in case you want a few extra copies to share with your friends."
