The Gears of War 2 team will be at Comic-Con this week with showings of new stuff. The stuff included are the announcement of novels, comic books and action figures for the franchise.

Hey, its going on the Halo route now. =)

Except the novels are being written by Karen Traviss. She wrote the superb Republic Commando series of Star Wars books (some of my favorite books of all time). Her skill should put the Gear's tie-in books several steps above Halo's.

Seems like more developers are paying attention to Comic Con, this would make more sense with Star Wars/Fantasy/Comic games but I would think they would rather show updated builds at Leipzig and PAX.

I don't think they would with TGS. Since many Western games don't sell well there.

Sweet. She is a great author. I might pick up the novel.
