<p>
As we announced at Fanfest last April, CCP is working with <a href="http://www.darkhorse.com/">Dark Horse Comics</a> on two excellent project from the EVE Universe. The four part comic book True Stories and the heavily illustrated detailed lore compendium EVE Universe – Source.</p>
<p align="center">
<img alt="True Stories" src="http://content.eveonline.com/www/newssystem/media/65216/1/29e9c0a9bdd59cf77fac8f5acbd3188b_13.jpg">      <img alt="Source" src="http://content.eveonline.com/www/newssystem/media/65216/1/8c2c062deb4c6c15dfa15556653d2016_13.jpg"></p>
<p>
To talk more about these two excellent books, CCP will be attending <a href="http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/">New York Comic Con</a>, which coincidentally will take place in New York city on October 10-13.</p>
<p>
<strong>True Stories</strong> is a comic book loosely based upon a story from <a href="http://truestories.eveonline.com">True Stories from the First Decade</a>, crowdsourced from the EVE community and adapted to comic book form. It is something that we plan to do more of in the future, since the stories of EVE players and their antics continue to amaze both us, the mainstream media and the EVE community itself. The comic book will be seperated into four chapters, each illustrated by a different artist, which will be released digitally free of charge and then available for purchase in pretty printed form.</p>
<p>
<strong>EVE Universe – SOURCE</strong> takes a different approach. In this thick, stylish lore-rich book, we are given an insight into the EVE Universe, the races, the backstory and the setting in more detail than ever before. Loaded with both classic and original art from the Universe, not only will SOURCE look splendid on your yin-yang coffee table, but it will also provide you with a deep understanding and immersion of New Eden, home of the immortal capsuleer (you).</p>
<p>
Both will be available in 2014.</p>
<p>
Representin‘ for CCP will be Creative Director of EVE IP development Torfi Frans Olafsson and Art Director of EVE IP development and one of CCP‘s key concept artists <a href="http://borkurart.com/">Borkur Eiriksson</a>. Both have been part of EVE‘s core team for a very long time and in various roles have contributed significantly to what the EVE Universe has become over the years.</p>
<p>
Torfi will be attending a panel called "<a href="http://nycc13.mapyourshow.com/5_0/sessions/sessiondetails.cfm?ScheduledSessionID=18A9CAC2">Rewriting the Classics, Modern Sci-Fi in comics</a>" on Thursday, Oct 10th at 3.15. The panel will talk about EVE and other sci-fi properties, with news on upcoming storylines in Prometheus, Aliens, Predator, as well as Star Wars. Not only that, we will delve into the science fiction classics of tomorrow, with exclusive news on Mass Effect, EVE Online, HALO and more!</p>
<p>
CCP will reveal art from the upcoming Source book. But for those at home, here is a small glimpse of what‘s in store:</p>
