Army ComicDeep in a maze of corridors at the Army Game Studio, the worlds of graphic art, gaming and military collide. Marsha Berry, Army Game Studio public game director, said the purpose in everything they do — games, comics, apps, and future products already in the works — is to tell the public the true life of a Soldier by exploring Army values, careers and technology.

The America’s Army comic book, added in 2009, was a natural direction, Berry said, both because of the popularity of comic books with young gamers and the Army’s long history of using comic books for communication. Since 1951, the Army has published the preventative maintenance monthly comic “PS Magazine.”

“Comic books and the Army have been around for a long time,” explained Berry.

The America’s Army comic sets the back story of U.S. involvement in Czervenia, the fictional country where the game takes place, and tells of the humanitarian aid that the Army is conducting, Berry said. “As we move forward, we’re starting to integrate more and more between the story line and products that we put out to the public to kind of tie everything together so you can get a better broader picture of the Army and Soldiers,” he said.

Whitney Stovall, Army Game Studio marketing director, said fans of the game and comic can expect in 2013, a new version of the game, more mobile comics and further development of the back story of the America’s Army products.

The team is keeping details of the new game hush-hush, but Stovall said following along with the comics and the America’s Army social media pages on Facebook and Twitter will give gamers clues about what to expect.
