In January we brought you a first look at Dark Horse comics new series “DEVIL”, that is a collaborative effort with Japan based publishers Madhouse (“TRIGUN”, “NINJA SCROLL”). Since then however the title has shifted dates from February 3rd, up to a February 17th release date, and news on the title has been scarce. However today a 6 page preview has surfaced, and if they are a telling example of what kind of a story we can expect to see, then you can consider me excited. Read on for the full preview.
“Manga artist Torajiro Kishi (Maka-Maka) and blockbuster anime studio Madhouse (Trigun, Paprika, Ninja Scroll) love comics. So much so that they’ve decided to publish an original, Western-style comic exclusively with Dark Horse! Enter Devil, a thrilling, sci-fi take on the vampire genre.
A virus is raging across the planet, turning people into bloodsucking superhumans referred to as “Devils.” Most victims die within days, sometimes months, but there’s a new strain, a new class of Devil that threatens to overtake mankind with power and bloodthirst. This new class of Devils derive from an experiment to clone a virus victim, and it looks like science has created a true monster this time. Can Takimoto and the Devil Investigation Section of the Tokyo police force stop this societal scourge? We’ll just have to see.
* Exclusive comic specifically for the American audience and only available from Dark Horse!”
Dark Horse Comics, teamed with Madhouse Publishing, will release “DEVIL” issue 1 on February 17th!
