"Titan Comics is pleased to announce the launch of the Devil May Cry™: The Vergil Chronicles graphic novel. Based on the re-imagination of Capcom’s stunning Devil May Cry™ videogame, the series divulges the shocking secrets behind this world-famous saga.
Set against a contemporary backdrop, Devil May Cry depicts a duplicitous world where nothing is ever as it seems and the line between good and evil is constantly blurred.
This comic prequel reveals the crucial back-story of the franchise’s hero, Dante, and his twin brother Vergil; with never-before-told revelations about these iconic game characters!"Okay, I think everyone knows that I'm a war-gamer -figures/armies on tabletops to battle it out. I played "Pong" in the 1980s but that just blew my mind. So, with my young nephew and niece I decided to "give it a go"....and I swore never to be humiliated by 6 and 7 year olds again.
So I have no background on the game involved. I'm coming at this as a comicker with a love on Manhua, even though I'm told that the characters in this book have been "Westernised" -there is the Manhua look and feel though both creators are French.
There is enough "weird" and crazy in this to keep me happy. The art is superb -as you can see from the pages below. I have actually looked through this book so many times since it arrived and I still love it. The story is good and, like all good BD series, there is that "to be continued" on the final panel!
Annoying because this was a good read and the quality of print is excellent.
Another book I would happily recommend!
