Oh yeah, I guess I can upload this now.

I drew this dumb little comic almost two years ago when I first joined the AC team at Ubisoft. It has nothing to do with the game other than being related to Ancient Egypt, and was drawn fun and sent around the office for shits and giggles.

I wish I could say the joke was my own. Alas, I aped it from an old computer game some Aussies in the crowd may know: Skippy and the Curse of the Temple of Ock.
