And it looks BLOODY fantastic!
Titan Comics has dipped its toes into tie-ins with video game comics for a while now. Earlier in the year, the company published comics linked to Dishonored, Wolfenstein and even Little Nightmares! Now Titan Comics has set its gaze on FromSoftware’s critically-acclaimed, action role-playing game Bloodborne, with the comic Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep.
Written by Ales Kot (Generation Gone, Zero), with art by Piotr Kolwalski (Wolfenstein, Dark Souls), readers will follow the narrative through the eyes of a nameless Hunter who has recently awakened in the ancient city of Yharnam. A city filled with horrific beasts and creatures that stalk the shadows and prowl the streets that are lined with the blood of the damned and the wicked. Leaving it is up to the Hunter to cease the seemingly endless Night of the Hunt and stop Yharnam’s twisted endemic once and for all.
Kot seems particularly enthusiastic to be working within the Bloodborne universe. He writes: “Bloodborne is one of my all-time favorite games. I put close to two hundred hours into playing it and researching its universe, and that was before I even knew there would be a comic — I was obsessed.” As for what readers can expect from the comics, he continues to write that “there will be mystery, the weird, the eerie, the horrific and the bloody.”
It’s obvious that Kot is invested in this comic, though only time will tell if his enthusiasm will be enough to live up to the expectations of die-hard fans.
Issue #1 of Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep is scheduled to hit comic stores and digital devices in February 2018.
