“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.”
