a comic be comin’ captain
Sea of Thieves will not only be an ongoing multiplayer experience, but also a comic series, thanks to Titan Comics. The first issue of Sea of Thieves will be launching in March, around the same time that the game reaches our shores. The comic will follow two crews who are chasing down the same treasure, battling monsters, avoiding traps and generally getting up to all sorts of hijinks. The series will be written by the author of Princeless, Jeremy Whitley, and provided art by the marvellously named Rhoald Marcellius (seriously, who else would you want drawing a pirate comic) who has done some great work for Marvel on the Content Of Champions series and All-new Inhumans. The style varies a little from Rare’s look for the game, but it maintains the spirit of fun and light-hearted looting that makes Sea of Thieves such a joy to play. Keep an eye out for this one in comic book stores soon.
