Dark Horse Comics have announced that they will team up with game developer Ubisoft to expand the world of Tom Clancy’s The Division series and release “The Division: Extremis Malis.” Christofer Emgard (“The Whispering Dark”) will write the three-issue series, with Fernando Baldo (“Deep Gravity”) serving as the artist and Michael Atiyeh (“Green Lantern: Rebirth”) on color duties. J.P. Leon (“DMZ”) provided the cover art.
Picking up months after a bio-weapon attack that destroys New York City, Dark Horse tells Comicbook.com, “the Division agents are the last hope of a United States struggling to hold itself together.” The book will center around Division Agent Caleb Dunne after his partner is killed in a mission gone wrong. Dunne “vows to track down the mysterious woman responsible.” During his search for vengance, Dunne discovers a threat that can destroy a nation already on the cusp of collapsing.
Fans eagerly awaiting the release of Ubisoft’s second Division game can chew on this to hold them over before its March 2019 scheduled release. If that weren’t enough, Dark Horse have also announced The World of Tom Clancy’s The Division, a 192-page hardcover collector’s item, full of art and even more lore from the video game franchise. Dark Horse once again told Comicbook.com “Don’t miss this opportunity to learn all there is to know about the tactical methods, the high-tech tools, and the all-important mission of The Division!”
“The Division: Extremis Malis” #1 will hit comic shelves on January 9, 2019 and is available to be pre-order now, while The World of Tom Clancy’s The Division goes on sale March 19, 2019, just after The Division 2 is expected to arrive.
