SOLICITATIONS: Titan Comics announces Devil May Cry tie-in comic series
Titan Comics is pleased to announce the launch of the DmC: Devil May Cry: The Vergil Chronicles Comic, based on the all-new re-imagining of the world-famous Devil May Cry video game saga. The first of two tie-in comics is available digitally from today, coinciding with the release of new video game installment, DmC: Devil May Cry. The two issues will hit comic stores in print beginning in May.
The Devil May Cry series has sold over twelve million copies worldwide, spinning off into an animated series, graphic novels, manga, action figures, statuettes, clothing and more. The franchise has also just been picked up for adaptation by Screen Gems, the studio that produced the blockbusting Resident Evil movies.
The first of two comics, released digitally today, takes place before the game DmC: Devil May Cry and reveals the unmissable backstory of Vergil and Kat; with never-before-seen revelations!
This gorgeously illustrated story features chilling and resplendent art that takes the characters into stratospherically blockbuster dimensions of hellish action and atmosphere.
Freshly translated for a simultaneous release with the French edition, this beautifully illustrated story, in the vein of Titan’s thrilling Assassin’s Creedgraphic novels, is written by Guillaume Dorison aka Izu (Omega Complex) and illustrated by artists Robin Recht (The Third Testament) and Patrick Pion (Tomb Raider: Dark Aeons).
The two-part comic series is available to read today on the iPad, iPhone, Web, Android and Kindle Fire, exclusively through the comiXology app and comiXology.com
In print, DmC: Devil May Cry: The Vergil Chronicles #1 is on sale May 15 and #2 is on sale June 19.
