Long ago in the Victorian Age, the once-great city of Anargal prospered under aristocratic rule. One of these carefree and privileged nobles, Arthur Artorias, had everything he could ever dream of to live a life of luxury. After receiving a foreboding message from his father, everything will change for Arthur and his beloved city forever… Written by the acclaimed Kevin Grevioux, creator of the Underworld and I-Frankenstein film franchises as well as writer for a collection of Marvel and DC Comics stories like Amazing Spider-Man, Young Avengers, Cyborg, and others, the comic series sets up the events of the anticipated stealth action-adventure.
"Kevin's dark and brutal stories combined with Chris' stylish illustrations are the perfect combination to set the tone for Winter Ember for its release next year," said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. "With the release of each issue, we are just that much closer to the game's full launch, please look forward to what we have in store!"
