Aya Takes Centre Stage in this Upcoming Assassin's Creed Origins Comic

By Kim Snaith on at

Bayek, you've had your time in the limelight. Time to step aside and let Aya take some of the glory. Titan Comics, publisher of many a video game visual novel spin-off, has just announced an Assassin's Creed: Origins comic mini series, which picks up where the game's story ended.

Aya's the leading lady in the comics, and she'll star alongside some familiar faces — including Cleopatra — as well as some new characters who never featured in the game. The first comic will be available from 28th February, with three different covers to collect. Check out the gorgeous artwork, by Stephanie Hands, Sanya Anwar and Sunsetagain, below.

And here's a sneak peek at a few pages from the first issue. It's written by Anthony Del Col, who's written previous Assassin's Creed comics, and illustrated by PJ Kaiowa. I'm not usually one for comic books, but I might just be swayed into finding out more of Aya's story.
