'Legendary' (ALL) Gets Graphic Novel, Pre-Order Bonus and Release Date

by Rainier on Aug. 1, 2008 @ 2:59 p.m. PDT

Legendary tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he opens the box, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard’s unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures of the box.

Developed by Spark Unlimited, Legendary: The Box tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he opens the box, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard’s unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures of the box.

Legendary: The Box is a breath-taking blockbuster experience where man and machine take on the beasts of legend in the war to end all wars, all set against a backdrop of total social disintegration. High calibre ordnance meets beak, talon, fang and claw in awe-inspiring fire fights the like of which have never before been realised in a video game. Living, breathing dynamic environments are spectacularly torn apart in the battle to stay alive, with the devastation of New York and London realised on an unprecedented scale.

Legendary Pre-Order Bonus

Don’t be left behind when the monster apocalypse strikes! Those who pre-order Legendary through participating retailers will receive a full color book personally put together by Steve Firchow, Art Director of Legendary, that shows the painstaking care and detail that went into designing the characters and creatures in the game. Those who just can’t be satisfied by visually still frames will be glad to hear that the Legendary art book contains a DVD chock full of trailers, videos and eye candy of a monstrous level.

Legendary Graphic Novel

It takes a legendary writer to translate a game like Legendary, and that’s exactly what Spark Unlimited accomplished in assembling a team to create the Legendary graphic novel. Mark Waid, author of such comic epics as Kingdom Come, takes the helm of the 96-page graphic novel that translates the tale of Deckard’s fight against the Black Order from video game to printed page. This epic tale gives fans details not told on the television screen, and delivers over-the-top action that can only be delivered from panel to panel. Be on the lookout for the Legendary graphic novel on shelves at the same time the video game hits shelves.
