Official Wildstorm SummaryEdit

The best-selling video game franchise arrives with a blast! This story bridges the gap between the Lightmass Bombing at the end of the first Gears of War game and the start of the second game. Follow the brutal adventures of Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad in their battle against the Locust in this new collection of GEARS OF WAR #1-6![1]


Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad survived the Lightmass Bombing, but not without suffering casualties. Now they're on a new mission: searching the badlands near Jacinto for a few missing squads. Unfortunately, that's not all they find and the action heats up immediately!

This book helps to bride the gap between the first two Gears of War video games... and introduces new Delta Squad member Jace Stratton. Game writer Josh Ortega and artist Liam Sharp (Testament) take you deep into Locust Territory!
