This March, Titan is releasing a new Dark Souls anthology miniseries titled Dark Souls: Tales of Ember, which explores the worlds of the game in a number of short stories that expands the lore of Lordran and Drangleic in new and exciting ways. Written by George Mann and Tauriq Moosa, the two issue miniseries features art by a host of some of the best in the industry right now, each providing their own spin on the iconic franchise.
FromSoftware's Dark Souls series of video games have captured players' imaginations and fueled their frustrations with its no-holds-barred, no-quarter-given style of gameplay. The franchise has developed a fierce following over the course of three games that have spun off into all sorts of other media, including comics books via Titan Comics.
Earlier this year, Titan launched its first eponymous Dark Souls comic by George Mann and Alan Quah, and today the publisher has announced the creative team are reuniting for a sequel miniseries titled Dark Souls: Winter's Spite due for release this November.
Earlier this month we shared writer George Mann's commentary for the first issue of the Titan Comics series Dark Souls, based on the hit action role-playing game set in a a primeval world of dragons, witches, and warriors.
With the second issue arriving in stores this week, we've asked series artist Alan Quah to offer his insights on the creative process for the issue, and to share a few of his pencilled pages. So grab your copy of Dark Souls #1 and read along as Alan details his biggest challenges, his preferred storytelling methods, and the rewards of working on such an epic story!
The hugely successful action role-playing game series Dark Souls allows players to immerse themselves in a primeval world of dragons, witches, and warriors as they try to piece together the parts of their characters' stories. Building on the world of Demon's Souls, and with three Dark Souls games to explore, the series has created a rich environment that Titan Comics hopes to develop further in its Dark Souls comic book series.
The first issue sold out on its day of release, but Titan has rushed out a second printing, so on the day that the new edition hits stores, we asked series writer George Mann to provide exclusive commentary on the book, introducing us to some of the themes and Easter eggs and his own favorite pages from artist Alan Quah.
