The first issue of God of War: Fallen God will be out shortly, but only in the United States.
The God of War saga is without a doubt one of the most loved and best realized that Sony fans have been able to touch over the years. Considered by critics and the public as one of the most successful products in the video game industries, it is normal that the brand has also resulted in contexts external to those strictly related to video games, such as comics.
The Dark Horse Comics company is in fact about to release a new comic book entitled God of War: Fallen God which will narrate some events of Kratos’ private life that have never been deepened or in any way analyzed, in the course of the various video games, by the software house Santa Monica.
This new album made in four parts, will be set between the events of God of War (title released in 2018 on PS4) and those of God of War 3, more precisely after the events of the massacre between our protagonist Kratos against Zeus and Athena. A story that will also talk about what prompted the ferocious God of war to be a father and a husband.
Below we leave you to the official synopsis of the comic:
God of War: Fallen God follows Kratos after conquering Zeus and thwarting Athena. Believing himself to be finally free of his bondage, he sets sail for the desert in an attempt to distance himself from his home and his shame only to find his rage and guilt follow close behind. Kratos rages against the one foe that has proven to be unconquerable—himself. But a war against oneself is unwinnable, and only invites madness.
Writer Chris Roberson and artist Tony Parker, two of the creative team that gave birth to the first work of the comic, will return to work on this project again. Together with them, we find the colorist Dan Jackson, the letterer John Roshell and the artist who will work on the cover artwork Dave Rapoza.
The prime issue of God of War: Fallen God will be available from March 10 in the US only.
