Now our hero "sets his sights on the future and securing an apprentice to continue his legacy," but inevitably finds himself pulled back into "an otherworldly conspiracy" after running into "an impossible face from his past."
The comic series is aid to be released sometime during August along with a "collected edition" in November. Titan's book division is releasing the first installment in a trilogy of novels in September. The first book is called Dishonored – The Corroded Man and is being written by Adam Christopher.
