A sneak peak of pages from the upcoming Vampire Hunter D: Message from Mars comic book have been released, as well the cover and a variant, all of which can be seen below. The series was announced earlier this summer.
Unified Pictures explained, “We’re creating a multi-issue comic book series for “Vampire Hunter D: Message from Mars”. It’s an adaptation of “Message from Cecile”, a Vampire Hunter D short story by Hideyuki Kikuchi. This story was only published for a fan event in Japan and will make it’s English debut in this comic book series published by Stranger Comics.”
Written by Brandon Easton (“Agent Carter”, “Mask”) with art by Michael Broussard (“Artifacts”, “The Darkness”), the first issue of the series is set to come out on November 16th. Pre-orders are available through your local comic book shop.
Vampire Hunter D is also becoming a CGI TV series dubbed “Vampire Hunter D: Resurrection“, which is also being produced by Unified Pictures. There hasn’t been an update on that series recently but we’re keeping a close eye on it!
Everyone cool with it if we also make a motion comic? pic.twitter.com/LLO8DlEnvE
