EVE Online has no dearth of fascinating stories, told and retold on forums, in interviews and in EVE itself. The best of these tales of dismantled empires, betrayals and galactic wars were submitted and voted for by the community, with the possibility that some of them would become the inspiration for comics, books and TV shows set in the EVE Universe.
The EVE True Stories hardcover graphic novel spins one such tale, where one man dismantled what had been one of EVE’s most powerful alliances at the heart of the Second Great War. In a day, a director of the Band of Brothers alliance defected to Goonswarm and wiped out his alliance, ending the war.
And we’ve got two copies sitting on Tim’s coffee table just waiting to be won by you lovely folk.
The graphic novel, based on the events that real players created and participated in, was penned by Daniel Way, whose writing credits include Deadpool, Wolverine and The Incredible Hulk. Artists Tomm Coker (Daredevil Noir), Alejandro Aragon (28 Days Later), Federico Dallocchio (Suicide Squad) and Daniel Warren Johnson (Space Mullet) all take on art duties.
If you want one of our two treasured copies, it’s all very simple.
Just tell us what event in EVE Online you think deserves its own comic book. It doesn’t need to be a big galactic war or the downfall of an alliance – it could be something small and personal. If we think it sounds rad, you might just end up with a copy of EVE True Stories.
Unfortunately, this is only open to folk in the UK. If you live somewhere else, you can still buy the print or digital version over at the Dark Horse website.
So have at it, pilots, and good luck.
