    Part of the comic, Origin is just a little series of snippets showing the past in relation to the legacy comic. I have some more planned in the future but for now I posted this one up. Here it's set in 2017 (which will be a date referred to as the comic progresses. Not only iis the style for this realistic but I have no issue useing actual popular culture refrences, be it actual political events (just after start of 2015) as well as media culture. In this case the actors of once TV series 'Dr Who' reprise their role for a one off promotional video giving the series a 'true ending' with the Doctor and carla settling in ADVENT'S new cities, though once the camera stops filming, their services are no longer required. The last frame is actually a reference to an item the commander may or not have picked up during the playthrough of Xcom 2. If you seen this image before then you pretty much figured out whose origin this is.Part of the comic, Origin is just a little series of snippets showing the past in relation to the legacy comic.

  • Found by chance but here's a GDC commentary of xcom (much like the gollop video) but involving 2012 game with greg. If you have over an hour it's worth a watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyW61bMYqyQ&t=159s

  • Here's some info, I spoke to a member of Xcom art staff, I don't have acknowledgment to give the person's name but I can put down what he told me. The reply was in response to a question I asked if there was any existing xcom 2012 Bradford and vahlen concept art.This was the reply:

    'Hi Daniel, thank you for your email! I'm really happy that you're such a fan of our games!!...Vahlen and Central did not actually have concept art - they were done directly by the modelers, so I've reached out to them to see if they have any extra material or anything that could be useful for your fancomic.'

    So there you have it, some additional back info on xcom. They may not have extra material but I am quite pleased with how firaxis staff are quite open. Will I get any extra material we'll just see but here is some info for those to know.

    There is only one thing certain with the Hunter: I'll have his rifle, the easy or the hard way.

    So, the Templar look like a lot more fun than I anticipated! Psi-Ninjas or such - can't wait to field one and stomp some ADVENT squads.

    Still possible that some guys kept going the psionic route after XCOM fell - after all, Sectoids etc. did roam the earth and show Psi skills so there sure was plenty to discover for willing disciples of Geist... :)
