Konami and IDW Publishing are planning a comic based off the Metal Gear series for a September release. Writing will be done by Kris Oprisko, whose recent work includes the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation comic, with artwork being handled by Ashley Wood, who previously did design and illustration work for Contra: Shattered Soldier.
"Personally, I have always been a fan of Mr. Ashley Wood," stated Hideo Kojima, director and producer of the Metal Gear Solid series. "I am very glad that Metal Gear Solid will be made into a comic with his talented artwork. I have a lot of confidence in the people at IDW Publishing, who understand the world of Metal Gear Solid. I have great hope for this new development of the series through the work of these people."
