Dark Horse Comics and Felicia Day’s The Guild are teaming to bring the web series to comics.

The Guild follows six players, AKA “Guildies” (Bladezz, Codex, Vork, Tinkerballa, Zaboo, and Clara), who decide to finally meet in real life after spending months playing together in an online world. Their individual social dysfunctions lead to several problems in the real world, but together, as in the online game, they become greater than the sum of their collected baggage and start to become . . . well . . . kinda normal . . . er.

“I’m really excited to work in a new medium and expand the Guild universe,” said Felicia Day in a prepared statement. “The comics will be a great way for fans to become more involved with the characters, and see the characters interact in environments that we can’t afford to show in the web series. I can’t imagine working with a better company than Dark Horse. It seems like a perfect match for the show. Indie cred to the max!”

Day will write the series, but at this time no artist has been announced.

  1. Ms. Day also appears in season 7 of Buffy, as Vi – one of the potentials -> slayers. Besides being a talented actress and writer, she seems to be a kick’in business woman. Yet another comics series I’ll be addicted to.
    I’m just wondering when (ahem… God?) she’ll move to being an action herione (again) in an all-black outfit (made of what ever), like Angelina, Charlize, Kate, Kristanna, Rachel….

  2. Day kicks major ass. She is one of the leading pioneers in creating original web content. The democratization of the entertainment field is going to happen – just as it happened to the mainstream news media. Corporations and commerce is in control of the most entertainment now – and the result is bland entertainment geared toward the masses, continually less and less creative and intelligent (hi there, GI Joe). The most creative people will look for a unfettered outlet – and then when they get successful, they will be in control of the people they work with and the organizations they partner with. Good for you, Day – lead the way.

    Whedon latched on to this with Dr. Horrible – the trend is clear.
