    If you've never played an Assassin's Creed game, or read one of the other comics being published by Titan, then don't worry. While it certainly helps if you have some background to the universe, it's not required for you to enjoy this series. If you're a fan of the AC universe, or characters like the Shadow, then this is a series that you're going to want to get in on from the ground floor. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Isaac Quattlebaum Apr 30, 2016

    Overall Assassin's Creed: Templar #2 stands on its own rather than because it's part of franchise. The complex writing and stunning artwork make this book rise above other video game tie-ins. My one hope as a fan of the Assassin's Creed games is that Black Cross might make an appearance in a future title. His presence throughout this issue made me a huge fan and I can't wait to see what he does next! Read Full Review

    Writer Fred Van Lente and artist Dennis Calero team up again for the third time. They previously worked on the Cowboys and Aliens graphic novel together, as well as X-Men Noir limited run. Calero's artwork is noir-ish, fitting the time period. The Black Cross is visually shrouded in mystery but still menacing looking all at the same. Van Lente is crafting an intriguing mystery that I am looking forward to see its completion. Read Full Review
