Modern Warfare 2’s adding a new weapon to its arsenal of modern media blitz tactics, Infinity Ward announced today. Joining games like Dante’s Inferno and Star Wars: The Old Republic, Modern Warfare 2’s getting its own comic book miniseries, starring a ghastly ghoul named Ghost.
Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling gave MTV Multiplayer a brief description of the series.
“The ‘Modern Warfare 2: GHOST’ comic is a 6-part series delving into the, more legend than history, backstory of Ghost. The series takes place before his inclusion in Taskforce 141 and as such before the events of Modern Warfare 2; focusing more on the origins of his character, the mask, and his ‘Ghost’ moniker,” he said.
Wildstorm, a branch of DC Comics, is set to publish the bullet-riddled rag.
We can’t wait to crawl under our covers and read it with our official Modern Warfare 2 night vision goggles. Being the biggest geek in history has never been so manly.
