Welcome everybody to a special uber edition of the Daily Hitman. For those of you who are new, this is a weekly (sometimes monthly) release of information about all things related to the Hitman series. If you haven't already then remember to sign up because we are beginning to grow and starting to become one of the internet’s best and most comprehensive sources of Hitman information. To my regular readers (who know who you are ;) ), welcome back and lets begin!
Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome some new member to the wiki, each of whom have worked diligently on improving articles and images.

In the Spotlight
In other Community News the Hitman Wiki has been given a place on the Encyclopedia Gamia's Action-Adventure Portal for passing the 500 page mark and for maintaining such a high standard in our articles. Thanks to Revitalizer for the update. Make sure to check out his blog on it for more information.
In honor of our 500+ pages on the wiki, we have some new userboxes for anyone that would like to spruce up their userpage. Credit to Dotman and TLR.
It is with great pleasure that I announce that we have a new affiliate to the Hitman Wiki and a prominent member of the Hitman Community himself. CoVert, the creator and administrator of the Hitman Hideout, a multilingual website featuring everything Hitman series related has allowed us to use images which he himself has created and acquired. The site itself can now be read in English, German, Polish and French and the Hitman wiki looks forward to a long and fruitful collaboration with CoVert.

Hitman: Absolution – New Information
The Saints ICA File
The ICA (International Contract Agency) files are a series of videos that provide in-depth background information on the main cast in Hitman: Absolution and feature exclusive art from comic artist Ben Oliver. This video reveals that the Saints began as an experimental wetworks unit. Proposal for the formation of the hit squad came directly from Benjamin Travis. I will say no more in case of spoilers but the video contains much more information if you wish to know more.
The leader of "The Saints" is voiced and played by Vivica Fox. An American actress best known for her roles in Kill Bill, Batman & Robin and Independence Day.
Fans can meet the talent behind the new character in another video filmed on the set of Hitman: Absolution during the performance capture sessions at Giant Studios. 
Hope News Times - Issue 1 to 8
There's panic on the streets of Hope and many of the local residents are putting their faith in Sheriff Skurky to put an end to it. After the latest grisly piece of news, Skurky has laid down the gauntlet to whoever is causing these tragic incidents. For the first week in quite a while, nobody appears to have been killed in the town of Hope. That said, a local resident is missing and the police are on the hunt. Where do you think Tyler has gone to? The full report can be found in the seventh and eighth issue of the Hope News Times.

Although the pictures itself would just make you wondering what they are about, looking at their respective articles in Barcode Society would reveal some of the mysteries. The links are above (just below the heading). Issue 6 of the Hope News Times is currently unavailable as the town was apparently in mourning after an unknown incident (and a series of mysterious deaths) in Hope.
However, the Facebook page also reveals some more interesting screenshots that may reveal more of the happenings in Hope, Idaho.
