If you are a fan of Assassin’s Creed than this is a book for you. If you are like and have played all the games so far, you will be hit with a punch of nostalgia as you relive untold short stories from previous games. The stories featured in this collection are not mind blowing revelations but offer a genuine attempt at adding to the character’s history with some new material. Each character’s portrayal is true to the game’s characters. Each story is enjoyable and gives readers and fans something extra beyond completing the games.
I cannot believe it has been ten years already. A franchise that started with an interesting concept ten years again has spanned into a multimedia franchise with new games, comics, merchandise and even a block buster movie. With each game developing it’s own style and fan base, this collection of comics present a wonderful addition to bookend one generation of games and prepare us for the next generation coming out soon.
This collection comes out on October 17th, so don’t miss the chance to catch up with some old friends and revisit some of the epic time periods of Assassin’s Creed’s History.
