Brian Wood to Write ‘Lord of the Rings’ Video Game Tie-In Comic

Brian Wood will write a DC Comics digital tie-in for a forthcoming video game based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. The game, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, is based on the immense backstory of Tolkien’s Middle Earth mythology. Wood’s comic will further explore its storyline, which takes place concurrent with the events of the famous main narrative.Specifically, Wood and Judge Dredd artist Simon Coleby will depict a battle that’s set in the lands of Eriador and Rhovanion. The writer of Northlanders, the Viking comic that routinely depicts intense medieval action, Wood is a natural choice for this Lord of the Rings comic book.

Details may yet change, but as of now the Lord of the Rings: War of the North digital comic will only be available as bonus material that can be purchased with certain editions of the game and only from certain outlets. Parts 1 and 2 can be accessed by pre-ordering the game from Toys R’ Us. Amazon’s pre-order has part 2 only, if that’s all you wanted. Hopefully the material will be made available via DC’s comiXology app upon the game’s release later this year.
