Dark Souls 2 absolutely needs a graphic novel: Into the Light
I don’t know about you, but I need Dark Souls II RIGHT NOW. March is so far off and sometimes I don’t think the beta will ever come for me. While nothing can be done on that front, I do have good news. How does a Dark Souls graphic comic sound? That’s correct, the answer is “YES F@#$ GIVE ME THAT NOW!” Ahem, it sounds alright… I guess.
Let me introduce you to a Dark Souls II: Into the Light. This graphic novel is a collaboration of “some of the most exciting comic writers and artists.”
Rob Williams is an acclaimed British-based comic book writer whose credits include Ghost Rider, Daken, Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark X-Men, Cla$$war, Star Wars Tales and the 2013 British Comic Award nominated Judge Dredd: Trifecta.
Simon Coleby is a British comic book artist who has worked for Marvel and 2000 AD. His credits include creating art for Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper and the popular ‘The Authority’ series from DC/Wildstorm. He also worked on the 2013 British Comic Award nominated Judge Dredd: Trifecta.
Andi Ewington is an up-and-coming writer whose breakthrough debut novel ‘45’ won critical acclaim from reviewers and fans alike, and has recently claimed a #1 Amazon UK Kindle Superhero bestseller spot. He was also named in WizardWorld’s ‘5 on the rise’ for 2010.
As you may have picked up on, I’m preeeetty excited about this. The authors even went on to say that the “Gothic environments, unworldly monsters, eldritch atmosphere, adventure and terror.” In summery, the authors and artists get it, which is really comforting/terrifying. The graphic novel will be released early January of 2014 in Europe – no word of it elsewhere – yet.
