Publisher Meteor Entertainment announces that the Hawken graphic novel written by Jeremy Barlow will launch in March 2013! Barlow previously wrote a series of Mass Effect comic book adaptions. The story will take place on Hawkens post-apocalyptic, over-industrialised planet and depict the populations struggle for resources. Executive editor Joe LeFavi in the original announcement:
Boasting influences from Blade Runner and Tekkonkinkreet to Nausicaä and Ghost in the Shell, Hawken is a breathtaking portrait of a war-torn world where greed is good, war is life, and survival is for the few with the most ammo.
To find such a gritty and grounded vision of our future was inspiring. Sure, the game is gorgeous and really fun, but Meteor isn’t simply creating a great game. They’re creating an entire universe fans can enjoy and explore for years to come.
