A number of big video game franchises are soon getting the comic book treatment, with the latest being Bethesda's Wolfenstein series. Publisher Titan Comics has announced it is releasing a new graphic novel based on the acclaimed shooter this month, and we've gotten a look at its cover and some interior artwork ahead of its debut.
The first installment, Wolfenstein Volume 1, is a prequel to the series' most recent title, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Titan hasn't revealed many details about the story, but like the game series, it stars B.J. Blazkowicz and features at least one character from The New Colossus, The Professor. Here's how the publisher describes the first issue:
"It's 1960, the Nazis won the war, and a small band of outsiders fight to survive in occupied America. But the relative peace of their sanctuary is shattered by the arrival of Nazis on the hunt for some top-secret quarry. But they're not the only new faces. A strange old lady has a tale to tell of the legendary Nazi hunter--B.J. 'Terror Billy' Blazkowicz."
Wolfenstein Volume 1 is set to debut later this month, on December 19. It's written by Dan Watters (whose previous credits include Limbo and Dark Souls) and features art by Piotr Kowalski (Sex) and Ronilson Freire (Doctor Who, The Mummy). You can see its cover and a sample of some interior artwork in the gallery above.
Wolfenstein isn't the only game series Titan is turning into a graphic novel this month; on the same day, the publisher will release a new comic based on Tekken. Titan also has a graphic novel based on Bloodborne in the works. The first issue of that series will release in February 2018.
