DC Entertainment and 3000 AD Announce Line of Defense

3000 AD and DC Entertainment are bringing comic books fans to the edge of conflict with Line of Defense. A video game where forces are trying to take over the resources of a distant planet and build a super weapon, all of which causes conflict for Galactic Command, Line of Defense was designed by veteran Derek Smart and developed by 3000 AD.

For many years the Terran military forces of GALCOM have been engaged in various conflicts with the Insurgents– a splinter group of military personnel opposed to the Terran governing body. In a surprise move, the Insurgents setup shop on the long abandoned planet of Lyrius, previously used by GALCOM for weapons testing, R&D and other forms of military operations. This move wouldn’t normally warrant a deep space troop deployment, except for the fact that the Insurgents were rumored to be developing a super weapon on the planet.

Firefight, a special limited-edition,“First Issue” comic based on the Line of Defense videogame, will be featured at the DC Entertainment booth at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, E3 and several other trade shows, as well as various online outlets. The comic will tell the story of the direct action team sent by GALCOM to neutralize the Insurgents threat and destroy their super weapon.

Firefight was written by Ricardo Sanchez (Resident Evil, Telara Chronicles, Alganon), and will feature interior art by Brian Ching (Gears of War, Batman: Arkham Unhinged, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) with cover art by Puppeteer Lee (Blacklight Tango Down, Storm Lion).
