FromSoftware’s eldritch horror saga Bloodborne isn’t an easy game to adapt into sequential art; despite disturbing visuals and a deep lore, Bloodborne guards its narrative secrets fiercely, parsing out only small details about its world between absolutely punishing boss fights and creature tussles. Writer Aleš Kot and artist Piotr Kowalski pulled off a minor miracle with the first four issues of Titan Comics’ comic companion, translating the look and feel of Bloodborne to the printed page with a storyline that embraced, rather than ran from, the game’s constant cycle of death and rebirth.
Beginning this September, Kot and Kowalski will continue their damned journey into Yharnam with Bloodborne #5, the start of the series’ second arc, “The Healing Thirst”—and the first issue since Bloodborne’s extension from mini-series to ongoing comic. Check out the official solicitation below, along with an exclusive first look at covers from Kowalski and Ghost Rider artist Tradd Moore, and be sure to nab the issue September 19, 2018.
