Here's a first look at the new Horizon Zero Dawn graphic novel

First issue Erend mid-July.

Horizon Zero Dawn's story will continue this year in a new graphic novel series, Liberation, from Titan Comics.

It's the second Horizon Zero Dawn series to come from Titan, after the successful first run shifted more than 60,000 copies of its initial issue.

Liberation's first issue launches on 14th July and is available to pre-order. Future issues then release in the run up to the franchise's big sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, due at some point later this year.

Liberation tells a new chapter of story featuring Aloy and sidekick Erend initially set during the events of Horizon Zero Dawn. We'll also hear about the liberation of Meridian, and the murder of Erend's sister.

As with Titan Comics' first series, this new run is penned by Horizon Zero Dawn narrative director Ben McCaw and writer Anne Toole from Guerrilla Games.
