Early Look At Kane & Lynch Comic-Book

Keeping with the increasing popular trend of turning video games into comic-books, Eidos will soon release the first issue in the upcoming series based on their unflinching crime franchise Kane & Lynch. The comics are being published by DC Comics’ Wildstorm and written by Ian Edginton, and will feature art from Chris Mitten and cover art by New York Times best-selling artists Ben Templesmith.

Eidos sent along a look some cover art, as well as a few samples from the comic itself. The first issue goes on sale August 4. Here’s how the series arc kicks off:

“Following the bullet-ridden finale to the best-selling video game, Kane and Lynch decide what's best for everyone concerned is that they go their separate ways. That is, until a contract is put out on their collective lives for a huge bounty – and every assassin and two-bit goon around the world is gunning for the volatile pair. Can the unrepentant traitor and medicated psychopath work together once more to save their lives and get to the bottom of this blood-drenched conspiracy?”

Here's the full cover for issue #1:
