Two years after the last installment from the highly popular RPG franchise God of War, a new comic book series from Dark Horse is about to arrive, shedding new light on the barbaric character during a period not covered by the games.
Written by God of War veteran Chris Roberson, the storyline will take place between 2010’s God of War III and 2018’s award-winning God of War. Tony Parker will be drawing its artwork alongside colorist Dan Jackson, while John Roshell will oversee its lettering. According to an official description, the new series follows Kratos as he is forced to confront himself after defeating Zeus: “God of War: Fallen God follows Kratos after conquering Zeus and thwarting Athena,” reads the official synopsis. “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.”
For the God of War fans out there, the first edition of Fallen God will be available June 24. Make sure to mark your calendars now.
