Titan has published a variety of comics based on Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise this past year, but one of the more notable has been Assassin’s Creed: Conspiracies, a two-part standalone series previously only available in French. If you missed out on the individual issues and would like to experience the saga in its entirety, Titan has announced it is releasing both parts together as one graphic novel, and it hits comic stores next week.
The Assassin’s Creed: Conspiracies collection releases on December 18, and it combines both issues of the series into one 104-page graphic novel. Unlike any of the video games, Conspiracies is set during World War II and follows the story of Eddie Gorm, a rookie member of the Assassin Brotherhood who must stop the Templars from unleashing an atomic weapon. Here’s Titan’s synopsis of the series:
“Europe, World War II: On the sidelines of the race for the atomic bomb, discover the story of Eddie Gorm and his integration into the Assassin Brotherhood while he infiltrates the Templars to foil their plan to create a devastating weapon.”
Assassin’s Creed: Conspiracies is written by Guillaume Dorison, with artwork by Jean-Baptise Hostache and Patrick Pion. Ahead of its release, Titan has provided GameSpot an exclusive preview of the upcoming collection. You can click through the gallery below to read a 10-page excerpt from the graphic novel.
Conspiracies certainly isn’t the only Assassin’s Creed comic from Titan this year. The publisher has also released new issues in its Assassin’s Creed Origins series, which picks up after the events of the Assassin’s Creed Origins game and features historical figures such as Cleopatra. Most recently, Titan published the final chapter of Assassin’s Creed Uprising, which concludes the Phoenix Project saga introduced in Assassin’s Creed Unity.
