Gears of War 4 - The Rise of RAAM graphic novel coming in June

Exciting news Gears fans! The Rise of RAAM graphic novel will be available from June 26th consisting of the four issues released earlier this year.

A prequel to the original Gears of War game, The Rise of RAAM is written by Kurtis J. Wiebe (Rat Queens) with art by Max Dunbar (Dungeons & Dragons). Before he was a general leading the assault against humanity on the surface, RAAM was an upstart commander tasked with waging an unwinnable war against the Lambent to protect the Locust homeland.

With the enemy pushing inexorably forward, he knows the Horde must turn its attention to more vulnerable prey, and he'll use every atrocity and deception at his disposal to bring Queen Myrrah around to his way of thinking.

We are happy to announce that the first print run of the graphic novel will include a Rise of RAAM Mega Pack! This Pack will contain 10 Cards and a bonus Card with one guaranteed Character: Vold RAAM OR Uzil Sraak, as well as ‘Rise of RAAM’ themed weapon skins and emblem. The Mega Pack code will be printed on an insert that will be included with the graphic novel (as well as instructions on how to redeem the code and unlock the content in game).

  

Vold RAAM and Uzil Sraak

Due to the popularity of the series, we encourage you to pre-order your copy now at Barnes & Noble, Amazon or your local comic store to ensure you don’t miss out on the first printing!

Note: The Rise of RAAM Mega Pack will also be available later separately for monetary-only purchase and will eventually be available for credits.
