Godkiller remains the highest-selling Black Mask book of all time, and the new Godkiller: For Those I Love I Will Sacrifice #1 is on FOC tomorrow. but all anyone wants to talk about is the video game,
And I get it, Critical Role and The Last Of Us Part II's Laura Bailey is to take on the voice role of the character Halfpipe and that the comic book's co-creator Matt Pizzolo, will write the adaptation. And that Bailey joins previously announced castmember Aya Cash in this dark-fantasy videogame about a team of anti-heroes who've survived their world's descent into a dystopia and undertake a vendetta against the cruel men and strange deities responsible for the end of the world.
Halfpipe was introduced in 2008's self-distributed Godkiller #1 as a street kid buying herself out of slavery through organ stealing before joining a campaign through the savage land of Outer City to find a new heart for a dying girl. In the nearly fifteen years since her debut, Halfpipe has developed into a time-traveling sorceress appearing in crossover comics with other universes, adorning numerous tattoos and even vinyl record picture discs.
Produced by Emmy-winner Brian Giberson (Power On: The Story Of Xbox), the project leads a new gaming initiative at Black Mask Entertainment, the busy production arm with more than two dozen features and series in development at studios and networks.
Pizzolo and Wieszczyk initially self-distributed the Godkiller comic at comic cons starting in 2008, where it grew in notoriety leading to a Warner Bros.-distributed animated feature written and directed by Pizzolo in 2011. The comic book returned through publisher Black Mask Studios with 2021's 'Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes' to overwhelming success, selling out of a 40,000 book print run on the day of its release and going on to sell through numerous additional printings. It quickly became one of the top-selling indie comic books of the year, and Black Mask's all-time bestselling series.
But it all comes down to the comics. Godkiller: For Those I Love I Will Sacrifice #1 is published in September, and goes to FOC tomorrow. It was previewed to fans at San Diego Comic Con and now you get to see a preview of it as well…
