We already knew that there’s a Darksiders novel on its way along with a “bible” for the game set for release at the same time as Darksiders II, and out of E3 2012 has come word that a digital comic series from Dark Horse is coming, too!
From the Press Release:
From the mind of Joe Madureira comes a full-blown Darksiders II digital comic series from Dark Horse Comics. Delving into the days before the Apocalypse, Darksiders II: Death’s Door is a pivotal contribution to the world of the anticipated new game.
Created in collaboration with THQ’s Vigil Games, the studio co-founded by Joe Madureira, this original story follows Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, on a mission to destroy a rogue demon. Chasing the creature across magical realms and even through time, Death’s quest takes him on a heart-pounding adventure that reveals some of the greatest mysteries of the games!
Written by Andrew Kreisberg (Batman Confidential, Green Arrow and Black Canary, FOX’s “Fringe”) and drawn by Roger Robinson (Batman: Arkham City, Azrael), Darksiders II: Death’s Door reveals essential secrets from the world of the upcoming game.
