'Mirror's Edge' (ALL) Gets Comic Book Series, First Issue at Comic-Con

by Rainier on July 24, 2008 @ 10:42 a.m. PDT

Mirror's Edge is a revolutionary new take on the First Person Action Adventure category. You are part of an underground group of concerned citizens who, not relying on technology, use runners to relay messages.

In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called Runners transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. In this seemingly utopian paradise, a crime has been committed and now you are being hunted. You are a Runner called Faith - and this innovative first-person action-adventure is your story.

Mirror’s Edge delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith’s world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous. Live or die? Soar or plummet? One thing is certain, in this city, you will learn how to run.

Mirror's Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of this modern day heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. With a never-before-seen sense of movement and perspective, players are drawn into Faith's world.

DICE is teaming up with DC Comics' WildStorm to create an exclusive, limited-edition Mirror's Edge comic book. EA and DC Comics will distribute the first issue of the Mirror's Edge comic book series at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The game will also be on display at booth #5233.

"This partnership with DC Comics sets the stage as readers explore Faith's world in Mirror's Edge," said Owen O'Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. "The unique graphic style offered by the comic book genre is perfect for taking fans through her back-story. Frame by frame, page by page, we'll learn more about the events that shaped both her and the city."

Based on the upcoming Mirror's Edge video game, the comic combines the talents of writer and story designer Rhianna Pratchett with artist Matthew Dow Smith. Pratchett is also responsible for crafting the intricate script for the game. The six-part comic series will introduce readers to Faith and her fellow 'Runners' - a network of couriers who use acrobatic moves to avoid being detected as they traffic packages across a network of rooftops and aerial skyways.

"Rhianna and DICE have created an amazing game with a great backstory," said Hank Kanalz, Vice President/General Manager for WildStorm. "The characters have really come alive in the game, and we are pleased that we will be able to add to the canon of the Mirror's Edge universe with this project."
