This critically lauded comic series is adapted from the fan-favorite Bloodborne video game by FromSoftware. Bloodborne follows the hunters through the dark streets of Yharnam. The inhabitants of this gothic city have been infected by an unusual blood-borne disease that transforms humans into beasts and monsters. Here is a little run down of each part in the series.
Bloodborne Vol 1: The Death of Sleep
Awakening in an ancient city plagued by a twisted endemic – where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned – a nameless hunter embarks on a dangerous quest in search of Paleblood… From writer Ales Kot (Zero, Days of Hate, Wolf), and artist Piotr Kowalski (Sex, Wolfenstein).
“An all-around gorgeous recreation of Yharnam. Highly recommended.” - Bleeding Cool
Bloodborne Vol 2: The Healing Thirst
Uncover the horrors of the Healing Church! As the first Hunters stalk the night in search of the afflicted, the Healing Church struggles to halt the mysterious Ashen Blood plague – and a renegade priest strikes a pact with an eccentric doctor to expose the awful truth!
“The dialogue is well-written and the pacing is excellent … Even if you aren’t a fan of the game series, I would gladly recommend this comic. 5/5” - But Why Tho
Bloodborne Vol 3: A Song of Crows
The City of Yharnam is buried in snow, and Eileen the Crow buries its Hunters. But one eludes her. Overcome with beastly madness, he prowls Yharnam, leaving bloody corpses in his wake. As the bodies mount, reality shakes, and strange things are amiss in Byrgenwerth. On the hunt for the Hunter, Eileen glimpses things beyond mortal understanding – can she catch the killer before she loses her own sanity? Discover the story of Eileen the Crow in this new story spinning out of FromSoftware/Hidetaka Miyazaki’s critically acclaimed horror-action game.
“Like the games before it, A Song of Crows teases its narrative over repeated reads and hidden imagery. A masterpiece for those who enjoy dark fantasy and horror both visual and mental” – Aurealis
Bloodborne Vol 4: The Veil, Torn Asunder
Yarem came to the city a long time ago, a man with a past spent in shackles. He found a new purpose in travel and discovery… but what he will find in Yharnam will test the limits of not just his desire, but also his sanity. As Yharnam falls apart, Yarem realizes his own perception of time and space is becoming radically altered. The walls of reality buckle and fold. He sees the Moon fill with blood. Yarem decides to descend deeper into the madness, and boldly discover the new horizons of reality. The price for such sights may be his life… or at the very least his mind.
“One of the best ongoing horror comics on the newsstand” – CBR
