The Gears of War franchise is tailor-made for a big screen adaptation and while that may not happen for some time that does not mean that the characters from the Gears of War universe can't continue their adventures on another medium. IDW Publishing and The Coalition bring Gears of War to comic book fans with Gears of War: Rise of RAAM #1. This essential story in the ongoing Gears of War saga explores the most iconic villain in the Gears of War universe, General RAAM! Years before he became the bane of humanity on Emergence Day, RAAM rose through the ranks to take leadership of the Locust Horde armies thanks to his intelligence, strength, and ruthlessness, and now fans can witness the untold tale of his vicious ascent.
The positive fan response for this book has led to it selling out at the distributor level just as it arrives in comic book stores this week and pretty much guarantees a second printing to meet fan demand. Luckily fans who missed the debut issue of the series will not have to wait long for the second printing as they will be able to score a second printing of issue #1 on 2/21 along with issue #2. Check out the second printing cover below.
