What better from San Diego Comic-Con than a free digital download of a new comic book?
Today, the official Hitman debuted as a free download at SDCC 2015. Written by F.J. DeSanto, the comic book serves as a prelude to the movie, and depicts the story of Agent 47 as he hunts down a contract, leading into the opening scene of the feature film. This marks the first time the Agent 47 character will appear in a comic.
Starring Rupert Friend (who we think is a dead ringer for Orlando Bloom), Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware, Hitman: Agent 47 follows a genetically engineered assassin (Friend) who targets a mega-corporation that wants to use the secret of his origin to create a whole army of killers.

Directed by Aleksander Bach, 20th Century Fox will release the film in theaters on August 21, 2015.
