The lights are on
Namco Bandai will release a free online comic book based on its upcoming Dark Souls II.
The graphic novel will also be packaged as a physical comic book that will be packaged in certain limited editions of the game. While little is known about the story other than the fact that it's set in the universe of Dark Souls 2, it is being created by veteran comic writers Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Star Wars Tales) and Andi Ewington (45) and artist Simon Coleby (Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper).
Email the author Matt Helgeson, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
I saw this earlier on facebook. Can't wait for this and Dark Souls 2 to come out! I still can't wait to fight that mirror knight boss.
Time to get pumped.
Perfect timing for this, Dark Souls 2 graphic novel, the Walking Dead returns, and the Dark Souls 2 closed beta starting Saturday, I'm ready for the weekend.
That's a comic I might just read.
Though I am out of my element, though, that seems like quite the pedigree of comic creators working on this...
Anyways, if they just keep it really Berserk-y, I'm sure it'll turn out fine.
Oh, at first I thought that ROBIN Williams wrote this thing. (lol)
Free is good. I'll be checking out the beta this Saturday.
Got killed by some skeleton dragon..
This would be cooler if that art matched the game better.
I don't really see this kind of exposition being in line with the spirit of the series, but who knows maybe it'll be cool. Probably not, but maybe.
GIMME GIMME GIMME
well, this isn't the worst thing you could put in the special edition of a game.
Honestly I'm not very excited for a graphic novel, but being a huge Souls fan I will take whatever I can get. March could not come sooner, heck I'm more excited about Dark Souls 2 than getting my PS4.
The main character of this comic better die at LEAST 4,200 times or else its not true to the source material
I wonder if a physical edition is packaged with the collectors edition of the game. I already got mine pre-ordered after they announced it and would not mind at all if this was added into the deal.
Hopefully you'll be able to buy this separately from the game.
Since I won't be playing full price.
I hope this means we might get some concrete info on the lore of Dark Souls 1. I have a lot of burning questions.
