Comics Writer Greg Rucka 'Will Cut a Throat' to Work on Mass Effect

May 13th - via:
Greg Rucka doesn't seem like somebody who needs help making his dreams come true. This is, after all, a man who wrote Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman comics all at the same time. He’s also managed to craft incredibly tense dramas in creator-owned series like Queen & Country, Whiteout and Stumptown. But the best-selling novelist still has other things he wants to do, like write a work set in one of BioWare’s video game universes. And, as he recently told me, over e-mail, he wants it bad: “I’d cut a throat to get into the Mass Effect and Dragon Age universes, frankly.” (Read More)

That seems to be the motto behind Gato Salvaje's second Kickstarter appeal after the first one fell short last summer. But they're impessive names at that, as the Spanish developer plans to bring aboard renowned comic book writer Greg Rucka and actress Ash Sroka, best known as the beloved Tali’Zorah from the Mass Effect RPG series. (Read More)
