Character Assassination: Hitman Absolution's Cast

No barcodes, no baldness, no bullets. Wrong game?

Hitman doesn’t just have subtitles, it also has people, and not just the sort that are like pinatas stuffed with money waiting to be popped open by an enterprising exterminator. The first in the “International Contract Agency Files” series gives the background detail on Diana Burnwood, the hairless one’s handler. The word is that Absolution is a more personal story, so maybe the Olyphant man will be finding out who his friends really are, or somesuch. I bet he doesn’t have any friends, because he’s a surly murderer who shows up at the pub in a tie and makes everyone feel comparitively underdressed. Way to go, Hitman.

Delightful artwork by Ben Oliver, whose work I’ve admired in a few comics over the years.

Now you must also watch an interview with Marsha Thomason who does the motion capture work for Diana. She reckons games are filled with artistry and at one point says “money, money, money” in a high-pitched voice.
