Although Bloodborne was released nearly a decade ago, the video game has blossomed into a sprawling franchise that has found homes in multiple entertainment mediums. Widely revered to be one of the world's best video games, it makes sense that the world has become so fleshed out since the title's initial release.
Board games, card games, spin-off titles, manga, and multiple comic series have helped to flesh out the world of Bloodborne. Now, Titan Comics is set to continue that trend with a brand new graphic novel series exploring the citizens and world of Yharnam.
It has now been announced that the series will receive a lead-in issue on Free Comic Book Day 2022 to set up the new comic series, and the cover art from artist Piotr Kowalski has been revealed. The official press release is included below.
