If The Pirates of the Caribbean has taught us anything, it’s that people love pirates. Well, Titan Comics have teamed up with Rare video gaming to release a comic book series based on their Sea of Thieves shared-world adventure video game. The game is not even out yet but already has 333,000 potential players signed up to the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme.
In Titan Comics’ brand-new series, follow two competing crews of pirates, bound by a shared past and a single destiny, as they sail the Sea of Thieves in a race to track down an ancient treasure. Along the way they’ll deal with undead hordes, devious traps and their own bitter rivalries, but which crew will emerge victorious and ultimately claim the legendary loot?
Written by Jeremy Whitley (Princeless, Thor Vs. Hulk) with art by Rhoald Marcellius (The Incredible Hulks, Warren Ellis’ Supergod) Sea of Thieves the all-ages comic book series is coming this March 2018 and Titan Comics have provided us with covers and a taster of the art. It looks like fun on the high seas to me.
Fans and retailers can order Titan Comics’ Sea of Thieves #1 from the upcoming January Previews catalogue from Diamond. Pre-order now for your digital device.
