Inspired by the world of the Dark Souls franchise that also includes Dark Souls II: Scholar of the Sin and a third title lined up for April 2016, the forthcoming comic series is penned by the best-selling writer George Mann.

The first issue of the Dark Souls comic book series will hit stores n April 6, 2016 and arrives with five different covers to collect, including a game cover, concept cover, two art covers and a blank sketch version.

“I am dead excited to be working on this new series,” said Mann. “Dark Souls has a rich, original universe that’s just begging to be explored in comics and I am honoured to have the opportunity to delve in and tell some new stories within it.

“I have been a fan of the games for some time, so it’s a real thrill to be able to contribute to the mythology of the Hollows and their world.”
