DC Goes Into UNCHARTED Territory in November

DC Goes Into UNCHARTED Territory

When DC said the end of WildStorm wouldn't mean the end of their licensed properties, they apparently meant it.

And they're not holding back on the talent involved.

The latest video game license to get its own comic book series at DC is Uncharted, the hit Sony adventure game for PlayStation 3. The game and comic follow the adventures of explorer Nathan Drake as he tries to take down a slew of bad guys who come after him as he solves the mysteries of from his ancestors' past.

In November, the Uncharted comic will begin with a surprisingly high-profile artist: Francesco Francavilla, who is fresh off his Detective Comics run and about to start the second arc of the brand new Swamp Thing series that is part of DC's "New 52" initiative.

The writer of the series is Joshua Williamson, who got a lot of positive buzz from DC fans last year with his fill-in issue on Superman/Batman.

The new comic will coincide with the November release of Uncharted: Drake's Deception, the third in the game series. Tony Harris will be providing the covers, with Adam Hughes doing variants.

The game series launched in 2007 with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and followed up with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
