First issue of Dishonored graphic novel arrives next week

The first issue of a four-issue graphic novel set in the world of Dishonored will be arriving on store shelves next week.

The graphic novel is being penned by writer Gordon Rennie and drawn by illustrators Andrea Olimpieri and Marcelo Maiolo. Each issue is priced at $3.99, and the remaining three issues are set to be released in the coming months leading up to Dishonored 2’s launch in November when all four volumes will be available as a full graphic novel.

According to Bethesda, the graphic novel will act as a bridge between the two Dishonored games, being set roughly 12 years after the original Dishonored (but before the events of Dishonored 2) and focusing on Corvo Attano’s return to the city of Dunwall and the troubles that follow him.

Issue one of the graphic novel series will be available on August 3 with four different collectible variant covers. Dishonored 2 is set to launch on November 11 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Here's the schedule of the graphic novel release dates:

  • Issue #1 – August 3, 2016
  • Issue #2 – September 7, 2016
  • Issue #3 – September 28, 2016
  • Issue #4 – October 19, 2016
  • Graphic Novel Collection – November 29, 2016
