DC COMICS TO PUBLISH PROTOTYPE

DC Comics and Sierra Entertainment -- a division of Vivendi Games -- on Tuesday announced plans to publish an all-new comic book series based on the open-world/action video game Prototype.

The series is set to debut in August via DC's WildStorm imprint. According to DC, details will be announced later this year.

Prototype puts gamers in control of Alex Mercer a genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anybody that gets in his way...assuming their physical identity, memories and abilities. Fueled by a three way war between Alex, the military and its elite Blackwatch division, and a viral outbreak known as the Infected, players will venture deep into a dark conspiracy 40 years in the making.

"Prototype is all about shape-shifting action, and we're using that key element to redefine the open-world game space," said Al Simone, Sr. VP of Global Marketing, Sierra Entertainment. "Another key feature setting Prototype apart from other open-world games is its incredibly deep, conspiracy-based back-story, and by joining forces with the largest comic book publisher in the world -- DC Comics -- we can bring this new anti-hero and his tale to an even wider audience of comics fans and gamers alike."

"We're blown away with what Sierra and developer Radical Entertainment have shown us of Prototype, and know with absolute certainty that this will make for a terrific comic book," said Hank Kanalz, VP/general manager, WildStorm. "Prototype's back-story, visuals and gameplay are stunning, and we have every intention of bringing those core pillars to our book because this is a great opportunity to expand on the world they've created, and build something new and interesting for comics fans."
