Well, here’s some news I’m rather excited about! I’m writing a new series of comics based on the massively popular Dark Souls video games.
If you’ve never played Dark Souls, but like your fantasy grim, dark and terrifying, then you should get on it straight away. Don’t expect to survive for very long, though, as it’s notoriously difficult.
I’ve loved the Dark Souls setting for ages now, and when the opportunity came along to write a new story set within the mythos, I jumped at the chance. It’s as much fun as I’d hoped it would be, too.
I can’t tell you much about it yet, I’m afraid, as the first issue isn’t out until April 2016, but rest assured – we’re going to put our characters through the wringer, and we’re going to be building on the fantastic mythos that already exists. It’s visually spectacular – I can tell you that much. Alan Quah is a genius. He really is. The pages I’ve seen so far are eye-wateringly good.
I’ll be back soon to talk a bit more about the new characters and the unfolding story, but in the meantime I’ll leave you with some covers for issue #1, along with the Previews codes if you’re anxious to order a copy.
