DARK HORSE BOOKS PRESENTS ‘EVE ONLINE: CAPSULEER CHRONICLES’
The official comic collection of ‘EVE Online’, the massively popular online role-playing game
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (May 6, 2022)—Dark Horse Books is pleased to announce EVE Online: Capsuleer Chronicles, based on the online multiplayer role-playing game, EVE Online. This hardcover will collect all four digital comics written by Sam Maggs (The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, Marvel Action: Captain Marvel) and Melissa Grey, drawn by Kieran McKeown (Crime Syndicate, DC Crimes of Passion), inked by Dexter Vines, colored by Sebastian Cheng, lettered by Nate Piekos, with cover art by Jeremy Wilson.
A new threat descends on the star cluster of New Eden, an ancient and ruthless civilization, demanding that all factions submit to conversion or die. Despite their differences in loyalties, four capsuleers fight tooth and nail to save each other and all of New Eden, hoping to buy just enough time for reinforcements to arrive.
It’s not just a book about epic space battles, exploding ships and an apocalyptic invasion. These are people who are brave enough to keep fighting when they’re outgunned, who get back up every time they’re knocked down, and who are willing to sacrifice their lives to protect all they love.
The EVE Online: Capsuleer Chronicles hardcover will be available in comic stores on November 23, 2022 and in bookstores on December 6, 2022. It’s available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic book store and local bookstore. EVE Online: Capsuleer Chronicles will cost $24.99.
