In a realm where hollowed champions rise and fall with the ages, where brave knights quest for absolution and bonfires blaze against the everdark, myth and legend will forever prevail...
From the desolate worlds of Namco-Bandai's critically-lauded videgame series comes this unsettling collection of all-new Dark Souls tales, written and drawn by some of the comic industry's finest.  Building upon the extensive lore of the franchise, this action-packed anthology is essential for all fans of the game.

    Bounding Into Comics - Mike Fugere Jr. Sep 14, 2016

    Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #1 is a serviceable issue. While none of the stories did much in the way to pique my interest in Dark Souls' lore, they were all clever enough to make me want to see what the creative teams have up their sleeves for the next installment. Read Full Review

    This feels significantly more like an appropriate adaptation of the series, not just in the artwork, but in the writing as well, both capitalising on the game's themes, and morphing the narrative architecture over to fit into a piece of sequential art. Read Full Review
