The Assassin's Creed Comic Books
LAST UPDATE: September 1st, 2016

After seeing a few fans of the series stumble in front of all the Assassinís Creed comic book different covers and stories, I thought, since a new arc have just began with new Assassins, it was time to clear things up a bit and help you catch up on these great stories or just jump back in them before Assassinís Creed Syndicate comes out.

New Assassinís Creed comic books are on the horizon but this kind of Ubisoft transmedia started back in 2011 with the collaboration of Ubiworkshop which brought us the series about Nikolai Orelov, the Russian Assassin, and his descendant Daniel Cross.

Written by Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl, the first story arc, ďAssassinís Creed: The FallĒ, was first cut into 3 issues which were then republished as one comic book and translated in many languages. Then in 2012 came the second and last part of this story called Assassinís Creed: The Chain. Later, both The Fall and The Chain were republished as one complete book named Assassinís Creed: Subject 4.

In 2013, Ubiworkshop surprised us with another beautiful and greatly appreciated story: Assassinís Creed: Brahman. Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl were joined by Brenden Fletcher to offer us once again some totally new characters, a new story set in India but, most importantly, a new assassin: Arbaaz Mir.

Now that we are done with a brief synopsis of the past, letís move on with what is to come.
Writers and artists Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery, Neil Edwards and Ivan Nunes will transport us in the present day with Charlotte de la Cruz, a young woman who does not know what her bloodline holds yet, and in the past with her descendant Tom Stoddard, who is in Salem at the time of the infamous witch trials. This story arc was said to be cut into 5 comic books for us to discover.

Iíve put down in the following sections the covers to help you get around. Most of the issues can be found either on, Amazon or your favorite bookstore.

Ubisoft and their partners have yet again outdone themselves with rich stories and great visuals. In my opinion the comic book format is very much appreciated by many fans and I sure hope they continue in this direction. Another 5-part story arc that would put in the spotlight a Templar focused story is also in the work and should be available to fans later on.

That is all for now but weíd really like to know what is your opinion about the comic books and the story they tell. Let us know in the comments your thoughts and donít hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
