EVE: True Stories is a graphic novel based on real stories from EVE Online players, and the first issue is now available. The 17-page first issue "Thieves Among Us" has been made available for free by Dark Horse Digital, on both the publisher's site and via the iOS and Google Play apps.

EVE: True Stories is written by Daniel Way, a writer credited on a number of Marvel Comics novels like Deadpool volume 3, Wolverine: Origins and the 18-issue Venom series from 2003. The first issue is illustrated by Tomm Coker, the artist of Homage Comics' Nightfall: The Black Chronicles, Marvel's Daredevil Noir mini-series and Image Comics' Near Death series.

The EVE Online-inspired comics will see future installments on March 5, March 19 and April 2, each available for free until June. All four comics will be bundled in a hardback collector's edition book, set to go on sale on June 4.
