Dante's Inferno Comic Available Now

EA and Wildstorm Productions Unleash Hell With Issue #1 of Dante's Inferno Comic Book Miniseries. First Entry in the Six-Issue Comic Book Miniseries Available Now!

DC Comics/WildStorm Productions and Electronic Arts will take comic book fans and gamers alike on a journey through the gates of Hell, with the release of the first issue in the six-issue comic miniseries, Dante’s Inferno, available now at comic book stores and retailers. Written by esteemed comic book writer Christo Gage (X-Men/Spider-Man, Wildcats) and featuring the highly stylized artwork of Diego Latorre (The Incredible Hulk). The first issue of the comic book portrays the murder of Dante’s beloved Beatrice, and his descent to hell to reclaim her soul

Created by Visceral Games, Dante’s Inferno is set in Dante Alighieri’s vividly imagined nine circles of hell – limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, violence, heresy, fraud and treachery. Players take Dante on an epic descent through hell, battling their way through a terrifying gauntlet of demons to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice. The Dante’s Inferno comic will highlight the action-packed moments in the game, and will also deliver more perspective on Beatrice’s experience, adding more depth to the game’s story and exploring more of the poem’s dramatic depiction of the underworld.

“We’ve been incredibly lucky to get the talented artists of WildStorm to contribute their inspired craft to the Dante’s Inferno epic,” says Dante’s Inferno senior producer, Justin Lambros. “The vivid artwork from Diego Latorre just screams out of the page, and Christo Gage’s thoughtful words breathe life and give soul to Dante and Beatrice. We can’t wait to see what gamers think of the comic, and we think comic fans will love the game once it hits stores on February 9.”

Below I've included the cover art of the comic, as well as the first four pages. I'd post more, but I don't want to get into trouble with EA :o)

I'm not a HUGE fan of the art style that they used for the comic, but I can overlook it if the story's good (I haven't finished reading Dante's Inferno #1 yet). Click the images to view them full-size (in a new window)... They're kind of hard to read when they're shrunk down to fit in the page.
