Titan Comics have quickly established themselves as the go-to publisher for video game tie-in comic books, working on series based on properties like Wolfenstein, Tekken, and Sea of Thieves. Today, they announced Dark Souls: Age of Fire, a four-part series that ties into the first Dark Souls.

Dark Souls: Age of Fire is poised to hit store shelves on May 16, a week before Dark Souls: Remastered launches on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. According to Titan Comics, Dark Souls: Age of Fire ties directly into the main game, as it features most of Dark Souls’ main characters. The series will also include “a dramatic retelling of the Legends of Silver Knights” for those invested in the series’ thick lore. The first issue will cost $3.99 and will be 32 pages.

This comic is written by Ryan O’Sullivan, known for his work on Void Trip and Warhammer; meanwhile, its artist is Anton Kokarev who has worked on The Evil Dead 2, Tekken, and The Howling. That being said there are three different art covers, one of which is drawn by Anton Kokarev, and the others by Pablo Fernandez Angulo and Bagus Hutomo, you can check all three out at the end of this article.

Dark Souls: Age of Fire will hit store shelves on May 16. If you are more interested in the game, Dark Souls is currently available on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, with Dark Souls: Remastered bringing the game to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on May 25.
