Call of Duty: Black Ops III Gets the Comic Book Prequel Treatment

This fall you can add Activision’s next Call of Duty title to the list of video games with a prequel comic. November 4, will see the release of Dark Horse Comics’ Call of Duty: Black Ops III prequel comic book. It is being written by Larry Hama (G.I. Joe), with Marcelo Ferreira (Transformers, TMNT) doing the art.

“A prequel to the highly-anticipated game, the Call of Duty®: Black Ops III comic book series follows an elite group of soldiers as they wage a secret war across a futuristic war-torn world transformed by technology,” Dark Horse detailed in a press release. “In the bullet-ridden first issue, the team infiltrates Tashkent, Uzbekistan to take down a double agent . . . but as they close in, they uncover something much more sinister at hand.”

Fans attending the San Diego Comic-Con convention next week can pick up an exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops III mini-comic. It’ll be available at the Activision installation or the Dark Horse Comics booth (#2615).

Hamas is very familiar with video games and the Call of Duty series, having played Modern Warfare and worked on Wolverine’s Revenge. Sadly he can’t play video games anymore due to arthritis.

“A lot of the appeal of Call of Duty is in how it puts you directly in the action. That’s pretty difficult to replicate in a graphic story format, so the aim in a comic adaptation is to provide more of what you don’t get a lot of in the game,” Hama said. “We’re talking character development and back-story, and a more involved personal interaction between the characters.  Also, it’s possible to really flesh out the story line, create running sub-plots, and explain technical details that aren’t that easy to convey in the game environment.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will launch on November 6, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
