NYCC 2016: Popular Character Reappears in Assassin’s Creed #12!


Ezio Auditore returns to Assassin’s Creed in issue #12, now on sale, when Charlotte de la Cruz travels back to the memories of her ancestors and encounters an older Ezio who is mentoring her ancestor Hiram Stoddard.

Anthony Del Col will be attending New York Comic-Con 2016 where he will be promoting this issue as well as taking part in two panels and being available for signings.

Follow the break for more details.

For fans of Assassin’s Creed, there’s one character that rises above all else: Ezio Auditore, the lead of the second and third video games. He’s listed more times than not as the most popular character, almost ten years since his debut.

And in Assassin’s Creed #12, released today, Ezio Auditore makes a brand new appearance.

As series protagonist Charlotte de la Cruz continues her frantic search for a mystical being that will provide clues in the present, she travels back to the memories of her ancestor in Renaissance Florence. And in this adventure she encounters an older Ezio Auditore, who mentors her ancestor Hiram Stoddard and Giovanni Borgia as they prepare for a large quest.

Meanwhile, in the present day, Charlotte is dealing with some complicated relationships of her own. Left in charge by cell-leader Galina, Charlotte finds herself trying to figure out the murky politics of the hacker collective Erudito. Even if Charlotte can figure out the mystery of Consus there’s no guarantee she can trust Erudito, or even their leader — her own grandmother — with that knowledge.

The official preview is: A brand new arc! And an explosive new secret! While Charlotte is reeling from the meeting with Erudito, it is time for the Assassin cell headed by Brotherhood stalwart Galina Voronina to pull her team together, but will she be able to do it alone, or is it time for reinforcements?
