Villains from popular Far Cry games are transported into prehistoric times by the priestess Batari, who has pulled them from their lives before they’ve committed their most heinous crimes. Now, they’re tasked with fighting against the dangers of a prehistoric world and challenging their supposed destiny. Will the unusual circumstances encourage them to come together, fight against each other, or go rogue?

This nature-versus-nurture narrative examines popular characters in a new context. The series features appearances from game villains Antón Castillo (Far Cry 6), Vaas Montenegro (Far Cry 3), Pagan Min (Far Cry 4), and Batari (Far Cry Primal).

The Far Cry video games are published by Ubisoft and have thrilled millions of players over the 20-year history of the franchise. Far Cry 4 notably features Pagan Min in the role of lead antagonist; he also appears in TOKYOPOP’s CAPTAIN LASERHAWK: A BLOOD DRAGON REMIX – CRUSHING LOVE – an original boys’ love manga inspired by the Netflix animated series created by Adi Shankar featuring alter egos of iconic characters from hit Ubisoft video games in a highly referential homage to the early 90s. Interestingly, TOKYOPOP are calling it a manga.

Free Comic Book Day is an annual promotional effort by the North American comic book industry to attract new readers to independent comic bookstores. More details are available at
