As talked about here and here.
I fear the expectations on this are outpacing the reality, so I wanted to do some rumor control. I also want to say that this was a work for hire gig I did, one of the ones where the creative person (me) is a true hired gun and not involved in the larger decision making processes. In short, I wrote a script and got a check and how/when/why its released is not a conversation I am part of. Which is fine, its the way work for hire is supposed to work.
THAT SAID it was a fun job. I wish I could have written more than the 16 pages of script I did, but like I said, its not up to me. I love LOTR and nothing would make me happier than to write a regular comic for general release. But as far as I know, and I’m only going off the info in the above links, this is a digital-only incentive promo comic available to people who pre-order the video game from Amazon or Toys R Us.
More info as I have it, but likely this’ll be all I have to share.
