In January 2020, IDW Publishing will proudly debut Tom Clancyâ€™s Ghost ReconÂ® Breakpoint: Blind Prophets, a five-part comic book miniseries about the worldâ€™s most elite US Special Operations Forces, the Ghosts, protagonists of Tom Clancyâ€™s Ghost Recon military tactical shooter video games by Ubisoft.
Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson(Warlords of Appalachia, Last Sons of America) and illustrated by Paco Diaz(Avengers: Endgame, Deadpool), this never-before-seen chapter of the Ghost Recon saga pits the Ghosts against a mysterious Sudanese warlord with shocking ties to their own elite team!
Bridging the gap between the Tom Clancyâ€™s Ghost ReconÂ® Wildlands and Tom Clancyâ€™s Ghost ReconÂ® Breakpoint storylines, this mission forces Nomad and Colonel Cole D. Walker to question everything they thought they knew about the Ghosts.
â€œFor the Ghost Recon lore hounds who want to know more about Walker, his relationship with Nomad, and the other new characters of Tom Clancyâ€™s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, this comic is definitely for you,â€ says Johnson. â€œAnd if you just love Ghost Recon and want to read a comic that makes you feel like youâ€™re in the game, this series is for you.â€
Johnson adds, â€œFor me, writing a series like Ghost Recon is the best of both worlds: as a gamer, I get to add to the lore of a beloved Ubisoft game series inspired by the Tom Clancy brand, one that means a lot to millions of gamers around the world. But more importantly, as an active duty soldier, I have the opportunity to tell an original story that honors the service and sacrifice of my real-life fellow soldiers who are doing the hard work all around the world.â€
â€œIâ€™m really proud to be part of this project because I love Tom Clancyâ€™s books,â€ says Diaz. â€œThe characters and situations are very realistic and exciting. Phillip has the talent, skills and knowledge to maintain an exciting verisimilitude level.â€
The first issue of Tom Clancyâ€™s Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Blind Prophets will be available in three cover editions: Cover A by Paco Diaz, Cover B by Andrea Mutti, and a retailer incentive Nomad Game Variant.
“We’re always looking for meaningful ways to expand the Ghost Recon universe and are excited to partner with IDW and their creative talents on this series. We are eager to share Ghost Reconâ€™s first mission in the comic book world with this exciting new story,â€ says Romain Foucher De Brandois, Ghost Recon Brand Director.
