Titan Comics has just released the first issue of Devil May Cry: The Vergil Chronicles comic, based on the all-new re-imagination of Capcom’s world-famous eponymous videogame saga.
Both issues of the two-part 'prequel' comic series are already
available digitally, to tie in with the recent
release of Capcom’s newest and highly rated videogame installment of DmC
Devil May Cry.

The Devil May Cry video game series has sold over 11 million
copies worldwide, spinning off into an animated series, graphic novels,
manga, action figures, statues, clothing and more. The franchise has
also just been picked up for adaptation by Screen Gems, the studio that
produced the blockbuster Resident Evil movies.
The next installment sees Capcom collaborating with UK based developer Ninja Theory to
explore new frontiers for the series. Set against a contemporary
backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry depicts a duplicitous world where nothing is
ever as it seems and the line between good and evil is constantly
blurred. The franchise’s hero Dante bursts into this world wielding the
series’ signature mix of sword and gunplay but adds additional weapons,
all new powers and a revitalized gameplay system as players navigate the
rich, interactive environment.
