Castlevania Comic Underway
Posted by Nathaniel at 1:04 PM
Since this item involves both comics AND games, I had a hard time figuring out what category to attach it to. Evidently, IDW Publishing will soon be coming out with a comic based on the Castlevania series of games, and chronicling the epic exploits of the Belmont family.
It is 1576, and the legend of the Belmont family’s vampire-hunting prowess still echoes through the Romanian countryside. While Christopher Belmont celebrates his nuptials, dark forces conspire to raise Count Dracula from his unholy slumber. With this ancient evil unleashed once more, young Belmont must to prove he is worthy of the Belmont legacy.I am definitely looking forward to this endeavor, as the Castlevania story is always one that I thought took very well to fan fiction and should really have a canon storyline attached. Looks like we'll have to wait a couple more months, as the first issue isn't slated to arrive until March 2005.
