IDW brings Artful Daggers to print

Big corporations taking hold in medieval Europe? That’ll probably turn out fine…

Created by Sean E. Williams (Fairest), Adam P. Knave (Amelia Cole) and Andrew Losq, with lettering by Frank Cvetkovic (Molly Danger), Artful Daggers is a story of greed, betrayal, and ultimately, corruption. Fifty years after a time-traveler brings science and technology to the medieval ages, corporations have replaced kingdoms, and the future teeters on a bleak precipice. Agents and assassins, hired for their specialties by the rivaling companies, stem the flow of information with the flow of blood. But the current system can’t hold, and the balance of power is shifting…

I’m not familiar with Artful Daggers: Fifty Years Later at all in its digital form, but it actually sounds really original and downright awesome. Bringing the trappings of modern business and life in general to a people who are used to setting their problems in a much more direct and violent way sounds like a really cool setting for an action/adventure. It almost sounds like a medieval version of the video game Syndicate- and if it’s anything like that, it should be a pretty great read.

Apparently IDW thought it was pretty darned good too as the Monkeybrain Comics property will be adapted from the digital screen onto the printed page by the publisher. The volume will collect the digital editions of the comic into one complete book, telling the tale of Artful Daggers in its entirety.

Sharpen your sword and don your best pair of wingtips, Artful Daggers: Fifty Years Later is expected to hit comic shops in March of 2014.
