The Gears of War: Comic series is a 24 issue publication from Wildstorm and DC Comics with collaboration from Epic Games. The aim of the series is to fill in the gaps between the games and the books and to expand the universe of Gears of War. There are three story arcs and several stand alone issues.
This story arc details Delta-Ones mission to the city of Montevado as they investigate the seismic activities that have been happening there. The story arc introduces several new characters into the gears universe such as Jace Stratton, a young gear just out of basic training. This story arc is set between Gears of War: Aspho Fields and Gears of War: Barren.
This story arc details Delta-One as they investigate a signal from the city of Jilane. With the help of Alex Brand a native of Jilane they attempt to find any survivors from the Locust massacre. This story arc is set between Gears of War: Hollow and Gears of War 2.
This story arc details the lives of Delta-One and the rest of the COG as they try to rebuild humanity after the sinking of Jacinto. This story arc is set between Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3 and interweaves with Jacinto's Remnant, Anvil Gate, Coalition's End and The Slab.
The most iconic villain of the Gears of War universe takes the spotlight! Years before he became the bane of humanity on Emergence Day, RAAM rose through the ranks to take leadership of the Locust Horde armies thanks to his intelligence, strength, and ruthlessness. Now, witness that swift and brutal ascent in... The Rise of RAAM!
Hivebusters introduces a fearless new squad, racing headlong into a conflict like none you’ve ever seen! After successfully busting a Swarm hive on the remote island of Pahanu, this suicide squad will face their most dangerous mission yet — going after the Swarm that decimated the home settlement of one of their own!
Between story arcs there are stand alone-issues which are related to certain characters or events. Some issues focus on the lives of secondary characters such as Tai Kaliso, Jonathan Harper and Jace Stratton while others explore significant events of the Pendulum Wars.
The Gears of War: Sourcebook was released in June 2009 and holds a collection of images from artists from the comic book industry and a story from Joshua Ortega on the inner struggle of Dominic Santiago.
