DC Comics have teamed up with EA games to bring EA’s new big tittle to ink. DC comics will be creating a mini series based on Dante’s Inferno with previews availableÃ‚Â at this years Comic-Con at sunny San Diego. DC Comics adds another video game license to their Wildstorm imprint with Dante’s Inferno, the action-adventure game adopted loosely from Dante Alighieri’s “The Divine Comedy”. The great team of Diego Latorre and writer Christos Gage are taking careof the six-issue series, scheduled to launch in December of this year. The comic will concentrate on some of the more action-packed moments of the game, while adding depth to the game’s back story by exploring Dante’s lost-love Beatrice’s plight as her soul travels through the nine circles of hell.
