Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe & Titan Comics Announce Little Nightmares Comics – Based On The Highly Anticipated Video Game!

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and Titan Comics have announced the creation of comics based on the upcoming, highly anticipated 3D puzzle-platformer Little Nightmares! The Little Nightmares video game is scheduled to hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam platforms on April 28th, 2017 and, to tie-in with the release, Titan Comics’ Little Nightmares Issue #1 hits stores in May.

Strange, spooky and surreal, Little Nightmares is the first collaboration between BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and Tarsier Studios – the Swedish team best known for their award winning work on a PS Vita game in 2012.

This four-issue mini-series delightfully connects to the deranged video game, which follows Six, a little girl, who tumbles into a den of ravenous creatures beneath The Maw – a grim feeding trough for the swollen, corrupted souls of the world. A place where excess is encouraged and dark secrets kept far out of sight.

Titan Comics’ Little Nightmares Issue #1 is written by Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel with art by Aaron Alexovich.

Based on the Legendary Game, a First Look at Freeway Fighter #1

Spinning out of the legendary Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks created by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson in 1982, the post-apocalyptic Freeway Fighter distinguished itself by deviating from the usual mix of orcs, goblins and cave-trolls. Celebrating 35 years in 2017, Fighting Fantasy brought together choice driven storytelling with a dice-based role-playing system to create a world in which “YOU are the hero!” The series sold over 18 million copies worldwide and is translated in over 30 languages.

In the new comics series, written by critically acclaimed writer Andi Ewington with original creator Ian Livingstone and artist Simon Coleby with Len O’Grady, an unknown virus has wiped out over 85% of the world’s human population. Former I-400 Driver Bella De La Rosa is one of the 15% – living every day as if it were her last. Now, eighteen months after the collapse of civilization, faced with a new world order where violence and chaos rule the Freeway, she must hone her racing skills and survive any way she can!

Titan ComicsFreeway Fighter Issue #1 comes with fantastic covers to collect by artists like Ben Oliver, Simon Coleby & Len O’Grady and also Orlando Arocena.

Freeway Fighter #1 thunders into comic stores and digital devices on May 17, 2017, just in time for the 35th Anniversary of Fighting Fantasy and is available to order from the upcoming March edition of Diamond PREVIEWS.

Review: Rivers of London: Black Mould #3.2

422401-_sx1280_ql80_ttd_

There’s a mould problem in South London. Not the usual stuff that smells funny and can be hell on the lungs. This mould is possessed by some dark power full of bad intentions and it’s another case for London’s one and only trainee wizard cop, PC Peter Grant!

The building seen near the end of the last issue of Rivers of London: Black Mould seems to have more history than I would have suspected. While I won’t spoil the surprises, there is a lot of them and writer Ben Aaronovitch delivers. Yet, there still are so many unanswered questions remain. What is the source of the sinister mould? Who is creating it? I want to know!

The realistic art style by Lee Sullivan continues, only with a supernatural edge. While this issue shows a little more of a “normal” life. It’s a nice contrast and is a clear building point in the plot before issue three is released. I’m curious to see how the artist deals with the unanswered questions and how that might impact the art.
