Digital Extremes announced today that it has partnered with Top Cow Comics to create a five-issue Warframe comic series. The series is written by Top Cow President, COO, and Writer Matt Hawkins and Editor Ryan Cady. The story is described as follows: "The narrative hinges on the lone Warframe, Excalibur, who is determined to protect a blinded young girl, the last survivor of a recently destroyed village on Earth."

Matt Hawkins had the following to say about the announcement.

I was immediately attracted to Warframe because of its storyline. For a writer, it's a very fertile place to create something fresh, from the mysterious Tenno origins to the faction battles to the Grineer Queens and more. It's a fantastic universe where I have lost many late night hours playing the game.

Digital Extremes studio head Sheldon Carter also provided a statement.

Matt and his team at Top Cow understand how to handle original story material with a sense of purpose, subtlety and urgency. Their full embrace and understanding of the Warframe universe won us over and we couldn't be prouder of this first issue.

TennoCon attendees will be given an exclusive "Convention Edition" of the first comic completely free of charge. Everyone else will have to wait until the comic's retail release this October.
