  • Although set in the middle of the events of the game, the events in the comic are never referenced in the game or in any other Deus Ex series title.
  • According to Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, art director for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Eidos Montréal followed the production of comics series was followed every step of the way. Jacques-Belletête also stated that although the comics were not written by the Eidos Montréal developers and have a pacing different from the game, lead writer Mary DeMarle "approved everything":[1]

We followed the book every step of the way. The main writer of the game approved everything. I oversaw all the art of the game, but that being said, it is a comic book. Comic books have their own rules, if you will, for comic book readers it is designed to be very action oriented. The pace is different, definitely, but it is totally Deus Ex: Human Revolution and we are completely happy with them.

— Jonathan Jacques-Belletête in 2011
  • 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 that she flies in-game.


  • 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.
