20th Century Fox has partnered with comic publisher Boom! Studios to create a one-shot comic that acts as a prequel to the upcoming “Hitman: Agent 47,” the second attempt to adapt the famed video game franchise to the big screen.
The comic sees Agent 47 hunting a deadly adversary in a story that leads directly into the opening scene of the new film. This marks the first time the character will appear in a comic. F.J. DeSanto (“Cyborg 009”) has penned the comic which will have art by Jesus Hervas.
Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware star in the film which is being produced by Charles Gordon, Adrian Askarieh, and Alex Young. The movie hits cinemas August 28th.
