DARKSIDERS II Prequel Comic Available with Game Pre-Order


Pre-ordering Darksiders II at Best Buy on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will get you a print prequel comic book by Dark Horse, the publisher announced Monday.


The qualifying purchase is the Darksiders II: Angel of Death edition, which includes not only the comic, but also an exclusive combat pack featuring "increased striking ability and armor protection." The comic, titled Darksiders II: Death's Door, is by writer Andrew Kreisberg (Green Arrow and Black Canary) and artist Roger Robinson (Batman: Arkham City), with a cover from Joe Madureira, who has strong ties with both the comic book and video game world and most recently worked on Marvel's Avenging Spider-Man.

Darksiders II is scheduled for release in August 2012, on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and Wii U.
