Anthem is coming to consoles early next year and publisher Dark Horse Comics is releasing a new limited series prequel to the highly anticipated game.
In July, Dark Horse Books and BioWare announced they had formed an Anthem publishing program, beginning with The Art of Anthem, due to arrive February 26, 2019. Now, Dark Horse Comics is thrilled to offer more details on a three-issue comic miniseries that will serve as a prequel story to the highly anticipated game.
Penned by Alexander Freed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Mac Walters (Mass Effect: Foundation), with art by Eduardo Francisco (Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse), the Anthem comic series follows a boy named Kismet who is rescued from an ambush by Yarrow—one of the javelin pilots known as Freelancers. Now an orphan, Kismet and his adoptive sister Jani must build a better future for themselves, and humanity, in a world filled with danger.
