If you have played Splinter Cell Conviction and the more recently released Splinter Cell Blacklist you would also have noticed the gap between the storylines in the two installments in the Tom Clancy’s series. However, you will soon be able to unearth what went down between the two games through the comic called Splinter Cell Echoes.
The series that exploits the adventures of Sam Fisher is being written by Nathan Edmondson. He is responsible for Marvel’s The Punisher and Black Widow, so I am assuming something brilliant this time too.
Moreover, the art work of the comic will be handled by Marc Laming who was behind the revival of Kings Feature characters in the Kings Watch. The series is being handled by Dynamite Entertainment.
In words of Edmondson, it is going to be a standalone story and will be told in a way that along with maintaining the thrill of the game, will build heavily on the narrative:
“I’m telling a full and original story that stands on its own as an action-espionage tale that we’re both proud of, bringing a narrative element to the thrill of the game in a way that only a comic can do.”
Similarly, Laming believes that Splinter Cell Echoes is going to be “a rattling good spy-fi yarn” that “gives good fan service while equally accessible to folks who don’t know the Splinter Cell world.”
Splinter Cell Echoes was originally released as an 88 page comic with the collector’s edition of Splinter Cell Blacklist that will be released in July with new content alongside a digital version.
