Assassin's Creed: Brahman Comic Takes Series to India

Assassin's Creed: Brahman Comic Takes Series to India

Ubisoft brings us a new assassin and new time period in its latest graphic novel.

Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed: Brahman, a new graphic novel featuring a new assassin in 19th century India. Brahman will be written by Brendan Fletcher, with art by Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschel.

The comic will introduce readers to Arbaaz Mir, a young assassin who is battling a "lifelong foe," probably in the form of the British Empire. During much of that time period, India was under the control of the British Raj via the East Indian Company. After an Indian mutiny in 1857, the British crown assumed full control of the country. India didn't achieve full independence until 1947.

Avid Assassin's Creed fans will note that Stewart and Kerschel were the team behind the previous two graphic novels, Assassin’s Creed: The Fall and Assassin’s Creed: The Chain. Both of those comics told the story of Russian assassin Nikolai Orelov and his descendant Daniel Cross.

Assassin's Creed: Brahman is up for pre-order at the Ubiworkshop for $19.99 and is scheduled for release this fall. A small preview of the graphic novel is below.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
