The name of the game in licensed video game comics used to always mean going through a proper comics publisher, but following the success of its in-house webcomics effort ShiftyLook, Namco Bandai is once again going its own way with the launch of its Dark Souls II digital comic. Debuting yesterday with the first of what will be weekly page uploads on the Dark Souls Facebook page, "Dark Souls II: Into the Light" is coordinated by Namco Bandai Games Europe and From Software, and written by Rob Williams (Cla$$war) and Andi Ewington (45) with art by Simon Coleby (2000 AD), lettering by Troy Peteri (Artifacts) and colors by Len O'Grady (The Zaucer of Zilk).
