With Comic Book Day 2022 just three months away, the wave of marketing for this year's issues has already begun. Many publishers chose to promote upcoming series with a tie-in or lead-in issue available to the public. But, ironically, they also have to tease the promotional material.
Titan Comics is an excellent example, as they have just announced an "epic new series" based on the best-selling Bloodborne video game franchise. The new title is receiving a lead-in issue on Free Comic Book Day this year, and in turn, the cover art for the promo has now been revealed.
The official press release cites the writer as Moon Knight's Cullen Bunn with Coffinbound's Brad Simpson on art alongside Piotr Kowalski, the illustrator behind the cover art on the FCBD 2022 issue. Full details are included in the press release below.
