So far since the first Assassin's Creed game we have seen Assassin's Creed get a few graphic novels and three issue series, so why not get a monthly series? The games have sold amazingly well and Assassin's Creed The Fall sold pretty well. So fare there have been three main assassin's introduced, Ezio Auditore, Altair, and Nikolai Orelov.
Altair has appeared in a few graphic novels already and he's had a game featuring him in it. But he is also the least developed out of the main characters and really needs more development as a character because while I like him he is quite bland. I think he comes off as bland because that's the way he is, he's supposed to be cold which can be good and bad. His supporting is also a problem because he doesn't have a big one like Ezio, Desmond, or Nikolai and the few people he has are quite boring. I doubt if the series became a monthly comic that he would be chosen.
Ezio has appeared in one graphic novel and several games so he doesn't need to have the series focus on him but it could be really good. He's the most recognizable of the characters and has a large supporting cast and a really backstory. I would like to Ezio have his own comic series because he can hold his own, it could really flesh out the character even more, and I really like Ezio. There is so much that could be done with him and his supporting cast. Maybe explore a romance he has with someone. I'm not sure if that's been done because I only got to rent Brotherhood for 2 days a few months back so I haven't finished.
There really hasn't been a lot of focus on Desmond up until AC: Brotherhood which really shows that he is the main character, not Ezio or Altair. I've always Desmond was never given enough game time in the AC games which disappointed me because I really find him the most interesting because he hasn't been fully explored yet. I would really like to see him in the modern day world as an Assassin without the Animus or going into the memories of his ancestor's. We would be able to see the relationship between him and Lucy grow, and maybe grow into a romance (Which I have been waiting to see since the first game). Desmond is the one I most want to get a series.
Nikolai hasn't made any appearances in the games yet but he was the main focus of Assassin's Creed The Fall which was a three issue series set in late 19th and early 20th century Russia. I haven't read it yet because I've been trying get a hold of it but nowhere seems to have all three issues for the price they're supposed to be sold at. The story follows him and his descendant Daniel Cross, a modern day assassin who is also looking for the Staff of Eden. Once I get it I'm going to update this blog with my opinion and thoughts on whether or not it could be a monthly. (Note AC The Fall was published under DC's wildstorm imprint and not Ubisoft)
If one existing characters wasn't chosen a new character could be created, much like DC did. If an original character was created I would like to see the Cold war era chosen and have it set in 1950's Russia. Another idea for
So Would anyone else like to see a monthly Assassin's Creed comic?
