Titan Comics has offered the first look at its recently announced Bloodborne comic series, Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep.

The series is being created by author and self-proclaimed Bloodborne fan Ales Kot (whose previous work includes Wolf, Zero, Generation Gone, and Secret Avengers), and it features art by Piotr Kowalski.

Back in October, when Titan announced Death of Sleep, it offered this brief synopsis of the new series: "A nameless Hunter awakens in an ancient city where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned. Seeking an escape from the endless Night of the Hunt, the Hunter embarks upon a dangerous, gore-filled quest with the hopes of ending Yharnam's twisted endemic."

That certainly sounds like the Bloodborne we all know and love and swear at, but it's not entirely clear if The Death of Sleep will be a direct adaptation of Hidetaka Miyazaki's Lovecraft-inspired video game tale, or if it will tell an entirely new adventure set within the Bloodborne universe.

According to Kot, however, "There will be mystery, the weird, the eerie, the horrific and the bloody -- and there will be an undercurrent of decaying romanticism, walking hand in hand with brain-mashing, soul-cleaving action, together ascending towards the Blood Moon."

Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep's first issue is due to arrive in February next year, and Titan has released two interior pages, drawn by Piotr Kowalski, alongside four alternative covers. The latter feature artwork by Kowalski, Andre Araujo, and Jeff Stokely, as well as art from the game. You'll can see them all below, apart from the one above, which isn't.


Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep will be available digitally and, for the traditionalists out there, in old-fangled paper form when it launches next February.
