Titan Comics is pleased to announce that due to incredible fan and retailer demand, the first print of Bloodborne #1 has sold out at distributor level and is going to a second print. Featuring a special black-and-white variant of Jeff Stokely’s (The Spire) cover A from Issue #1, this new printing is due to hit comic shops the same day as Issue #2 on Wednesday, March 28, 2018.
Last week, Titan brought JAPAN Studio and Fromsoftware’s critically-acclaimed Bloodborne videogame to comics, garnering huge praise from critics and fans alike. The Bloodborne videogame series debuted on PlayStation®4 in late March 2015. As announced at the SCEJA Press Conference 2015, Bloodborne went on to sell more than 2 million copies, as well as expanding the game world with an expansion DLC, “The Old Hunters” which launched on November 24, 2015. Nominated for eight Golden Joystick Awards, the blood-chilling videogame won “PlayStation®4 Game of the Year” and “Best Original Game” in 2015’s Golden Joystick Awards.
In Titan Comics’ new Bloodborne series entitled “The Death of Sleep” – written by Ales Kot (Generation Gone, Zero, Days of Hate), with art by Piotr Kowalski (Wolfenstein, Dark Souls) and colorist Brad Simpson (Kong of Skull Island) – a nameless Hunter awakens in an ancient city where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned. Seeking an escape from the endless Night of the Hunt, the Hunter embarks upon a dangerous, gore-filled quest with the hopes of ending Yharnam’s twisted endemic.
“We’re so excited to see the swift and enthusiastic response to Bloodborne #1,” said brand manager Chris Thompson, “Comic fans have embraced the popular team-up of Ales Kot and Piotr Kowalski, while gamers have embraced the opportunity to experience the world of the Hunter from a fresh perspective. FromSoftware’s tireless support has meant the right people found it and are wanting more! By rushing out this second-print of issue 1, those who missed it can still grab a copy alongside issue 2.”
“We couldn’t have hoped for a better reaction to our Bloodborne series!” said Bloodborne series editor, Tom Williams, “The creative team has poured their sweat, tears and plenty of blood into this series, and I think the results speak for themselves! Delighted the hunt can begin again!”
