This year, one of the biggest names in cutting-edge action comics will team with one of the most respected publishers and developers of video games, as Devil’s Due announces a new publishing deal with Capcom. As part of an expansive package, Devil’s Due will launch four new titles based on Capcom game properties, including Bionic Commando and Lost Planet.

DDP is very excited to be joining forces with Capcom,” said DDP President Josh Blaylock. “Not only are these awesome games, but they have great stories behind them ripe for comics, including a vintage classic with Bionic Commando that’s been revived along with the new sequel.”

Already a leader in comic books featuring prominent pop culture icons, Devil’s Due heads into Summer 2008 with a rapidly swelling library of new adapted and original titles.

Devil’s Due is a very passionate and creative comic publisher,” said Germaine Gioia, senior vice president, licensing, Capcom Entertainment. “We are thrilled to be working with DDP to begin evolving some of our highest profile videogame properties in other media.”

More details about Devil’s Due’s plans for Bionic Commando, Lost Planet, and other new Capcom books will be announced at July’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Other new CAPCOM books you say? Please let there be a RESIDENT EVIL anthology book in those plans. Like one where S.T.A.R. teams up with Phoenix Wright. That’d be so awesome. Especially if Mega Man showed up to kick Frank West in the nuts.

And I know that picture says “Not Final Art,” but that Sean Phillips’ rendering of Bionic Commando is pretty sweet.
