NYCC: DC Comics Announce 2015 Mortal Kombat X Series

Mortal Kombat Online has espoused the importance of comics to Mortal Kombat for quite some time - all the while knowing there may just be something in the pipeline. The long wait finally ends with DC Comics announcing a brand new Mortal Kombat X series at this weekend's New York Comic Con!

Launching as a digital first series in January, 2015: Mortal Kombat X will follow the path established by previous NetherRealm Studios fighting game tie-in: Injustice: Gods Among Us.

DC Entertainment Creative Executive Shawn Kittelsen will take his experience working with DC games to the page as he scripts Mortal Kombat X. Artist Dexter Soy (DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe, Batman Beyond Universe) will have plenty of inspiration as the series tackles the entire catalogue of Mortal Kombat fighters!

Similar to Injustice; Mortal Kombat X will tell the story before the video game. Tied directly to the reboot plot of Mortal Kombat (2011), the series will integrate with MKX, establishing a foundation whilst featuring now klassic characters who may not find their way directly into the game. Superstar artist Ivan Reis (Green Lantern, Justice League) contributes covers.

Preview images already offer the first tantalizing tease at returning character elements from the past - the Red Dragon Clan represented by a warrior or minion(s)! [via Comic Book Resources] The Red Dragon were introduced in 2002's Deadly Alliance as counterpart precursor to the Black Dragon Clan. Members include: Mavado, Hsu Hao & demi-god founder Daegon. Also pictured in artwork: MKX versions of Scorpion, Raiden & Sub-Zero.

Update Oct. 13: NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon notes the series won't simply be "Mortal Kombat X", but will publish with a special sub-title. With a cast expansive enough to include the Red Dragon, DC's "Universe" moniker may be in contention.

""Mortal Kombat X" will be Shawn Kittelsen and drawn by Dexter Soy under covers by Ivan Reis. The series serves as a prequel to the incoming game of the same name by NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The story takes place 25 years after the events of 2011'a "Mortal Kombat" relaunch game. "

I'm excited :)

A Red Dragon member? This could be interesting...

This should help give more character development and story depth.

The Red Dragon guy looks sick. I believe he has something to do with the second boot from Ed's teaser pic.

Dual weapons FTW!

I wonder if this Red Dragon guy will be an actual player in MKX. Personally he seems like a normal generic henchman for the red dragon.

Gonna sound ungrateful but...

While this is really cool and it will give us some extremely cool MK artwork to look at, I'd much rather have the whole story of MK X inside the actual game that I paid for instead.

Having to buy a comic to find out the whole story line instead of it being inside the game is reminding me of the shambles that was MK Armageddon and the ridiculousness of releasing character bios on the website instead of in the game itself. Obviously this game is nothing like that, but similar situation.

Hope it's available for the Kindle. I have some of the Borderlands comics, wouldn't mind having this in my phone.

Injustice says "keep calm and enjoy the ride".

Ok, now this is great news. The Injustice comic was/is fantastic. Miles beyond the game's story. If this is anything close to that, prepare to have characters finally fleshed out. Finally.

Hmm, looks like a generic henchman - colour me surprised if that's a new character.

Indeed, I wouldn't mind browsing through the comics on my ipad. Hopefully this goes better than the MK Deception comic that was scrapped.

Maybe this character is Chameleon taking on a new role? Either way, if this character is in MKX playable, it's going to be "siiiiiiiiiick!"

Long live the Red Dragon!

I thought the Deception comic was great. The pictures told the story better than any dialogue. The other MK comics were stupid especially because of childish dialogue, but the black&white Deception comic was amazing!

Interesting, artwork looks nice too!

Even if he turns out being a generic henchman, chances are we're going to be seeing a new Red Dragon member either way. Possibly boot#2 from Ed's tweet?

For comparison, here's the generic red dragon dude design in Shaolin Monks:

Very similar.

RE: Mortal Kombat X comic

There's the strong chance we might get a Red Dragon member that isn't half-assed. I was actually hoping a new character would be Red Dragon affiliated since it's revealed Daegon and Shinnok are supposed to be allies so why not send a warrior to fight for Shinnok.

I love the concept of the Red Dragon but everyone in it is meh at best, Daegon included. So I hope they have a new character ready to impress.

If it's this guy I can dig it..I like the look. If this is just a minion then I hope the potential member is even better than this.
