Renowned comic-book scribe Peter David has written the script for Epic Games' Shadow Complex for Xbox Live Arcade. The game is coming out on August 19 and TheFeed's excellent Jake Gaskill will have preview on it soon. According to Microsoft:
"David created an original new story for Shadow Complex that runs parallel to the events in Orson Scott Card’s best-selling novel, Empire.The game delves further into the hollows of government conspiracy, dark politics, military upheaval, and the sinister plan of a rogue paramilitary group called the Restoration."
To promote David's involvement in the game, he'll be signing autographs at Microsoft's booth at Comic Con 2009. He'll be available for autographs, pictures, and juggling lessons on Friday, July 25 along with the game's creators,
Colonel Donald Mustard and Cliffy B Cliff Bleszinski.
I was really looking forward to Shadow Complex as it is. David's involvement with the game has me super looking forward to it. I loved his work on The Incredible Hulk, Captain Marvel, and (especially) Young Justice. As far as blending humor, action, and emotion, David is one of the best.
How do you feel about Peter David writing the script for Shadow Complex? Happy? Sad? Meh?
