Avast ye comics reader

Ages in development, Ubisoft’s open-seas, pirate adventure Skull and Bones was re-announced this past summer. With a release set for this fall, the game offers players the chance to create their own sea-dog, and set sail for some old fashioned pillaging and plundering.

But the thieving isn’t going to stop there, as the property will be making it to the printed page as well. The accompanying comic series will come out of Dark Horse Comics, with John Jackson Miller and James Mishler onboard to craft its tale. They’ll be joined by artist Christian Rosada, and colorist Roshan Kurichiyanil, who’ll be bringing that story to visual life.

A merchant vessel on the high seas is besieged by a vicious crew of pirates, but the fighting is interrupted by a devastating typhoon. When the storm crashes in, it leaves predator and prey stranded on an island somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Discover the mysteries and danger that will betide them all. A gritty story set in the merciless world of Ubisoft’s upcoming pirate game.
