While From Software may be busy leading up to the release of their next hardcore RPG in the Demon/Dark Souls series, publisher Namco Bandai has just revealed that a new comic book will be available before the game's release.

Titled "Dark Souls 2: Into the Light", the graphic novel takes place in the very gritty and thrilling universe of the game with story penned by Rob Williams and Andi Ewington with art provided by Simon Coleby.
Rob Williams is an acclaimed British-based comic book writer whose credits include Ghost Rider, Daken, Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark X-Men, Cla$$war, Star Wars Tales and the 2013 British Comic Award nominated Judge Dredd: Trifecta.

Simon Coleby is a British comic book artist who has worked for Marvel and 2000 AD. His credits include creating art for Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper and the popular ‘The Authority’ series from DC/Wildstorm. He also worked on the 2013 British Comic Award nominated Judge Dredd: Trifecta.

Andi Ewington is an up-and-coming writer whose breakthrough debut novel ‘45’ won critical acclaim from reviewers and fans alike, and has recently claimed a #1 Amazon UK Kindle Superhero bestseller spot. He was also named in WizardWorld’s ‘5 on the rise’ for 2010.
When asked about their collaboration around the graphic novel, the authors teased that "Gothic environments, unworldly monsters, eldritch atmosphere, adventure and terror are the best arguments that an artist could wish for!"

"Before you venture into the darkness, pay heed to those who know what awaits within."

Those looking to nab a copy of the comic tie-in will find it available sometime during January 2014, ahead of the game's launch on March 14, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with a PC release sometime after. Check out a timelapse video of Simon Coleby at work below.

it is certainly a world full of unspoken or very slightly alluded to lore, a heap of stories could be written

also isn't the PC version coming a month late to market after the consoles?

You are correct Pave, thanks for the reminder! I should really get around to finishing Dark Souls, it had a really engrossing atmosphere but I just got piled on with other big titles to play.

Not sure what to think about this. Souls was fantastic in part because nearly all the lore and storyline were really complex and under the surface. It was all so subtle and the fun was all the posts and commentary by players trying to unravel it, the opposite of this. As long as it doesn't take away from that experience, great.
