This article is about the comic series. For the game, see Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution comics are a series of mature graphic novels, composed of a total of six issues, created in conjunction with DC Comics and written by Robbie Morrison. The principal drawing artists are Trevor Hairsine and Sergio Sandoval, the cover artist is Jim Murray, the editing artists are Ben Abernathy and Kristy Quinn, the color artist is Jorge Gonzalez, and the letters artist is Saida Temofonte.

The series tells a side-story of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, retaining the protagonist Adam Jensen, and taking place right after the fight with the notorious antagonist Lawrence Barrett. The comics expand on many aspects of the storyline, primarily Jensen's past as a SWAT team member and its connections to his present life. It makes for an interesting segue in the Human Revolution story, featuring many familiar faces such as David Sarif, Francis Pritchard, Dr. Marcovic, and Faridah Malik, along with a few new in-depth individuals.

DC Comics provided the following synopsis

"The legendary video game franchise, which PC Gamer called "The Best PC Game of All Time," comes to comics in advance of the highly anticipated new installment in the series! Adam Jensen is a cybernetically enhanced security operative for the powerful Sarif Industries in a future where biological enhancements have become commonplace, yet fanatically opposed by many. While recovering the kidnapped niece of the founder of Sarif Industries, Jensen unstitches a mystery that goes all the way back to his fully human SWAT origins in Detroit – and an adventure of violence and betrayal that will span the globe!"

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the story taking place relatively within Human Revolution's story arc, Jensen has a surprising amount of active augmentations throughout the comic series.
  • Faridah is depicted as piloting a helicopter, instead of the VTOL she flys ingame.
  • Despite taking place in the middle of the events of the game, the events in the comic are never reference by any of the characters.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Augmented Edition of the game contains a bonus disc that includes a video - a nine minute long 'motion comic' - that takes you through the first half of the first issue.
  • Sergio Sandoval is credited in all of the comics except the first issue.
  • Jorge Gonzalez is credited as the artist of color in the comics, yet DC Comics lists Rex Lokus.
