Edward Kenway Returns In New ‘Assassin’s Creed: Awakening’ Manga

It might be a sour note to touch on the fact that Ubisoft is not releasing an Assassin’s Creed video game this year, but we are strapped in for their live-action Assassin’s Creed film in December. Titan Comics has released a few Assassin’s Creed comics that told two powerful tales from the Assassin’s & Templars point of view.

Titan Comics is now gearing up to release a new series titled “Assassin’s Creed: Awakening”, which will follow fan-favorite Edward Kenway. Unlike Titan’s past Assassin’s Creed comics, Assassin’s: Awakening will be in the vein of a manga series. The series will be written by Yano Takashi, & the artwork will be handled by artist Oiwa Kenji. Assassin’s Creed: Awakening #1 will hit stores on November 9th!
