Dragon Age ‘Awakening’ comic is a thing that is happening

If pouring over pre-release coverage of Dragon Age: Origins expansion “Awakening” isn’t enough for you, perhaps a new line of pre-release comics will be. Rekindling an old relationship, EA and Penny Arcade are releasing a six-part comic over the next few weeks leading up to the expansion’s release. You can read the first part this afternoon via the game’s official Web site, where you’ll be able to see the others later.

The comic revolves around a “shadowy figure” trying to break into Vigil’s Keep. We’re guessing that this person isn’t a burglar, Jon Stamos, or a lost hobo. Rather, he or she will be an important part of the expansion’s narrative. But that’s just a guess. Stranger things have been put on the Internet.
