This was officially announced at TokyoPop’s virtual panel Friday at New York Comic-Con, so I can finally talk about it: I’m returning to the world of Resident Evil with a new graphic novel that ties into the Infinite Darkness animated series that debuted on Netflix this past summer. The story will focus on fan-favorite Leon Kennedy, who is not only one of the most popular characters in the RE game, but is also one of the protagonists of the animated series. The graphic novel — which will initially be released as a five-issue miniseries — will serve as a prequel to the animated series.
The artist hasn’t been announced yet, but should be soon. I’ve already written the first two of the five scripts.
