Tomorrow, August 24th, Issue #1 of IDW’s six-part comic adaptation of Anne Rice’s Servant of the Bones hits store shelves, and we have a look at the covers for the first three issues along with a peek at an excerpt from the miniseries’ debut.

The text has been adapted by Mariah McCourt and edited by Mariah Huehner with art by Renae DeLiz and Ray Dillon. To pre-order your copies from TFAW, just click the various covers below.

Issue #1 Synopsis:
Anne Rice, among the most iconic creators in horror, brings one of her richest stories to IDW in this six-part tale of murder, demonic revenge, and the redemptive power of faith.

When a beautiful young woman is brutally slain in the streets of New York City, the demon Azriel sets out to discover who killed her, only to find a far more sinister plot that could end the world. Once a human in ancient Babylon, Azriel is a spirit of rage and terror that gradually rediscovers his humanity through holy vengeance and spiritual love.

Issue #2 Synopsis:
Babylon. The city of gods and kings. Before he became a spirit of vengeance, Azriel was a young Hebrew who could talk to Babylon’s deity, Marduk. And it’s that unearthly connection that leads to his dark destiny, when the city priests and witch Arsenath prepare him to become a ‘living god.’

Issue #3 Synopsis:
Azriel must submit to an ancient ritual and parade through the streets of ancient Babylon after his relationship with the cities most powerful deity, Marduk, is discovered. To save his city and his family, Azriel must become a living ‘god’, enduring the pain and horror of a slow, fiery, death to finally become the Servant of the Bones.

Check Out Episode 1 of the New VR/360 App Narrative Series Find Me

Published

on

Let me get this out of the way right off the top. I’m not really into the whole VR/360 experience. I’ve tried it out and it’s cool and all, but I’m not sold just yet.

That said, if you are into such games/experiences, you might want to check out “Find Me”.

The mobile app is a 360/VR narrative series from BlackBoxTV, James McFadden, Eric Jacks & Collab, as well as #YouTubeSpaceLA and The Los Angeles Times.

Each episode features visual codes and puzzles for you to solve, unlocking additional content and information available only in the app. That is until IRL gameplay begins in Los Angeles on December 25th and the app becomes your key to unlock locations in the real world.

“Find Me” will have one winner with a one-of-a-kind prize for the person who “finds” and frees the main protagonist Julia Zamora (played by Madison Lawlor) via the app.

Again, I’m not into these VR/360 apps but if you are – or want to try one out – I highly suggest taking on “Find Me”.

You can watch “Find Me – Episode 1” below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!

Get the “Find Me” App for iOS HERE and Android HERE.

New Trailer Arrives for Overkill’s The Walking Dead Video Game

Published

on

Over two years after it was announced, we’ve finally been given our first good look at Overkill’s Walking Dead video game in the form of a series of new videos posted on the company’s YouTube channel.

The first video introduces Aiden, one of the playable survivors, and confirms that the game will be set in Washington D.C. No gameplay is shown, but it still serves as a pretty decent intro for yet another story in the Walking Dead universe.

Following on from the trailer above, Overkill also released a video introducing the team working on the game, in addition to an extended 28 minute interview with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be a four player co-op action FPS in which you’ll have to fight crazed fellow survivors in addition to zombies. There will be four playable survivors in total, each with their own unique upgradable abilities.

Starbreeze Studios will publish the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year. Keep an eye on Overkill’s YouTube channel for more updates in the meantime.
