IDW Publishing has announced it is teaming with CMON to bring Rising Sun, the feudal combat and political intrigue game to comic books.
IDW’s Rising Sun storyline introduces Chiyoko of the Koi Clan, leader of a group of powerful warriors – the best each clan has to offer – on a mission to save Japan from dragons and monsters. But perhaps the greatest threat she faces is not the many monsters who are ravaging the country… but her very own team!
Rising Sun is written by Ron Marz and David Rodriguez, with art by Martin Cóccolo.
“When I first saw the game, I immediately knew it was a world I wanted to play in,” says Ron Marz. “As soon as I found out that Rising Sun was going to move into comics, I was the first one jumping up and down with my hand raised, yelling, ‘Pick me! Pick me!’”
“Rising Sun has a huge amount of world-building and deep backstory with the Clans, and it’s been great creating characters representing aspects of those clans and throwing them together,” says David Rodriguez. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ron, Martin, and game designer Eric M. Lang on other projects. They’re great talents, and IDW pulling them all together was a huge win for the book.”
Rising Sun #1 is set to arrive in November 2019.
