August 24, 2019 - 11:55pm

Rising Sun, Eric Lang's highly regarded game that was published by CMON Limited in 2018 is getting its own comic book, to be published by IDW beginning in November 2019.

The comic book is to be written by "industry legend" Ron Marz and David Rodriguez, the co-authors of IDW's Skylanders, with illustrations by
Martín Cóccolo, who has previously illustrated web comic compilations as well as Star Trek: Year Five that were published by IDW.

According to the press release, "IDW’s Rising Sun storyline introduces Chiyoko of the Koi Clan, leader of a group of powerful warriors – the best each clan has to offer – on a mission to save Japan from dragons and monsters. But perhaps the greatest threat she faces is not the many monsters who are ravaging the country… but her very own team!"

The initial 3-book miniseries and the following issues will also provide exclusive content that promises "to enhance the game-playing experience" for the game's many fans.
