EVE: True Stories Available for Free Download


It goes without saying that EVE Online is a very successful MMORPG. And you know that they say behind every successful MMORPG there's an equally successful comic book. It's not quite a common adage yet, but at the rate we're going, it'll be the norm instead of the exception before long. Having said all that, Dark Horse Digital is proud to offer up "Thieves Among Us," the first tale in EVE: True Stories for free, in conjunction with CCP Games.

Issue #1 of the EVE: True Stories graphic novel dramatizes the opening throes of one of the greatest gaming stories of the last decade – the fall of the player alliance known as the Band of Brothers. Filled with action and intrigue, “Thieves Among Us” is inspired by actual player-driven events. It's written by Daniel Way and illustrated by Tomm Coker, with cover art by David Palumbo. Future instalments of EVE: True Stories will arrive digitally on March 5th, 19th March and April 2nd 2014, via Dark Horse Digital.

The hardback prestige collected edition of EVE: True Stories, containing all four comics, will go on sale in book and comic book stores on June 4th, 2014. Full press release below. No word on how many ships carrying the digital comic were lost in the epic space battle.
