A new IDW-published Gears of War comic details how General Raam, the main baddie from the first game, ascended the ranks of the Locust horde. Gears of War: The Rise of Raam is written by Kurtis Wiebe and illustrated by Max Dunbar, and will will release on January 24.
If the first few pages are a good indicator of the quality of the rest of the series, then I’m sure Gears fans will be interested to see how Raam, one of Gears’ coolest bad guys, became a general among the Locusts. Wiebe also created a neat Marcus and Dom-like dynamic between Raam and Gears 2’s equally awesome main baddie, Skorge.
