DC Comics to back DCUO with weekly comic series
Today DC Comics Executive Editor Dan Didio spoke to IGN about an upcoming weekly comic series, designed to live right alongside Sony’s long-in-development MMORPG DC Universe Online. Titled DC Universe: Legends, DC is working with Sony “to construct a series that not only tells a core story but connects with gamers, giving them hints, strategies and even a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of the game.”
Details are still scarce, but as the article specifically pairs Legends with DC’s other two impending event series, Justice League: Generation Lost and Brightest Day, it seems DCUO is finally coming to PS3 sooner rather than later.
Didio hints at an “American Idol”-like cross-pollination angle to the game and the comic: “What I think is the most exciting thing is that, if everything is working as well as we hope once we get down the line, characters that players create actually have an opportunity to work their way from the game into the comics themselves.”
So if you think you can come up with a better candidate for Justice League membership than Geo-Force, now’s your chance.
