The Killzone comics were a series of planned comics by Dreamwave Productions.
The comic series was announced on July 8, 2004, as a three part comic series by Dreamwave Productions. It is unclear if any of the issues were finished at all, but Dreamwave would continue to release press releases on the three issues up until their bankruptcy. On July 27, Dreamwave founder, Pat Lee would talk about the series to comicsbulletin.com: "Killzone is a project that we’re working with Sony on. They came to us with it, and we thought it would be a really interesting idea if we took on this new property. They’re putting it out as a video game fairly soon. We’re pretty excited, it’s the type of project that we’ve always been interested in. We’re telling a war story with a video game franchise. It’s gonna be a blast."
Before it's official cancellation, John Ney Reiber, writer of the comic series, would tell CBR.com: "Dreamwave is apparently preparing to close its offices. A press release is forthcoming, I’m told. Neither Pat nor Roger Lee have confirmed this–to me, anyway. Which could be very naturally attributed to the holiday season. Or just as naturally attributed to any number of less jolly causes. But I can say with absolute certainty that this was a bleak Christmas for at least one freelancer who was assured earlier in the month–*after* your announcement of the McDonough/Patyk lawsuit against Dreamwave– that they would be paid on time for the work they had turned in."
This was proven to be correct, as the company officially announced its bankruptcy on January 4, 2005.
