Official PR follows:
Titan Comics and Blizzard Entertainment are thrilled to announce an all-new comic book series set in the universe of the critically acclaimed and genre-defining action role-playing game series Diablo®.
Written by Marv Wolfman (Blade, Crisis on Infinite Earths) and illustrated by Piotr Kowalski (Wolfenstein), DIABLO will launch with a four-part miniseries in 2018. The comics will follow a group of zealous scholars and crusaders as they discover the true origins of humanity. Will their faith survive these shocking revelations?
Set in the dark and demon-infested world of Sanctuary, the Diablo game series invites players to face down the infernal hordes of the Burning Hells—and rewards them for their efforts with piles and piles of epic loot. Diablo III, the current installment, set a record for fastest-selling PC game, with over 3.5 million copies sold in the first day of its release, and more than 30 million sold to date. Diablo III is available for Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms.
