"Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep" debuts this month.
Titan Comics has adapted some of today's biggest video game franchises into graphic novels, most recently launching comics based on Tekken and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The next title to receive the comic treatment is PS4's critically acclaimed Bloodborne, and now the publisher has given us another look at the debut issue ahead of its release.
The first issue of Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep releases in comic stores and online in February. Here's Titan's synopsis of the issue: "Awakening in an ancient city plagued by a twisted epidemic--where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned--a nameless Hunter embarks on a dangerous quest in search of Paleblood."
Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep is being written by Ales Kot (Change, Zero, and Wolf). It features art by Piotr Kowalski, who previously worked on Titan's Wolfenstein and Witcher graphic novels. The publisher has shared the first lettered pages from Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep, along with several variant covers, giving you a chance to preview the debut issue before it hits comic stands. You can take a look at the pages in the gallery below.
Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep isn't the only video game comic coming out in February. Titan is also publishing a graphic novel based on Assassin's Creed Origins. That series is set after the events of the video game and features historical figures such as Cleopatra. Additionally, Titan will release a comic based on the Xbox One pirate game Sea of Thieves in March.
Despite the game's popularity, developer From Software has not announced a sequel to Bloodborne, although the studio teased a mysterious new game during The Game Awards in December. While that may still be a ways from release, players will soon have a chance to relieve From Software's acclaimed action-RPG Dark Souls. A remastered version of the title is releasing this May for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
