Ubisoft has announced a partnership with renowned writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Marc Laming to create Splinter Cell Echoes, a graphic novel based on Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell franchise. Nathan Edmondson is a comic book author and screenwriter, native of Augusta, Georgia. His critically acclaimed work includes comics Who is Jake Ellis?, Grifter, and The Activity. An illustrator and comic book artist, Marc Laming was an artist for The Activity and has contributed illustrations and art to dozens of comics for some of the world's biggest publishers, including DC Comics and Image Comics.
Set for release in 2013, the Splinter Cell Echoes graphic novel takes place between the events of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist. The story bridges the gap between the two games with a realistic, original story that sets the tone for the opening events in Splinter Cell Blacklist. A video is now locally mirrored.
