Ratchet & Clank Comic Coming

If you’re a fan of the PlayStation brand’s most popular space-faring duo then you’re probably a little bit sad that there won’t be a Ratchet and Clank game this year. The pair are set to make an appearance in Sony’s motion-controlled crossover title Heroes on the Move but that might stretch into 2011.

So up steps DC Comics imprint Wild Storm with news to warm your heart. They’re printing (and making available on the excellent Digital Comics service for PSP) a comic book following the exploits of everyone’s favourite long-eared, jaundiced, racoon-looking thing (I know he’s a Lombax, don’t attack me).


The comic book will be written by Insomniac’s TJ Fixman and follow on after the events of A Crack in Time. The art is being done by Adam Archer with covers by CreatureBox (Insomniac artists David Guertin and Greg Baldwin). Release date for the printed book is fixed for September 8th in North America, most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Digital copy is slightly more ambiguously dated for “this Fall”.

  1. they pair???? warm you heart??? :) anyways is it me or does ratchet look 5 years old.. i heart ratchet would be cool if there was a series out an not a comic..

    • Bah, typos. I haven’t had my coffee yet and I don’t usually do Saturdays until at least 11am.
      Fixed now :)

    • I think Peter’s got Jerry Lawton ghost-writing for him. ;-)

      • L-O-L.
        He might be looking for a job soon but from what I’ve seen of his work he’s not good enough to volunteer for TSA ;)

      • Mate, I wouldn’t even give him to IGN!

    • Not only does he look about 5, but also slightly not like Ratchet – I wouldn’t be able to read this for the simple reason of not being able to shake the feeling that its actually Ratchet’s 5 year old cousin…

  2. Nooo, sad Ratchet face! :(

  3. This shall be an instant purchase for me. It won’t be long before I start experiencing Ratchet withdrawel.

  4. They look too ‘human’ to me!

  5. Ratchet looks like a child lol And where’s Quark’s mahoosive chin?! Still, that looks pretty cool, will buy it if enough are made, but if its just a one-off thing…

  6. Ratchet looks filled with teen angst. He just feels so much!

  7. So they are actually continuing the story? well hell yeah now we can know what happens next.

    ill probably get this sometime next year, at the same time i get Heroes on the Move and a Crack in Time (but i wont read it till late 2011 or early 2012)

  8. Now if only that excellent Digital Comics service for PSP would be available in The Netherlands :S

    There are many comics I’d like to buy if I was able to.
