Dante's Inferno Comic Book Annnounced

Visceral Games has announced a joining of forces with DC Comics/WildStorm to turn its hack-and-slash adaptation of Dante Alighieri's classic poem into a comic book too.

Dante's Inferno will be a six-issue mini-series written by Thunderbolts: Secret Invasion and X-Men/Spider Man scribe Christos Gage, with art by Hulk: Broken Worlds illustrator Diego Latorre. The first issue is slated for release in December.


An animated adaptation of the allegorical bloodbath is also in the pipeline, coming from the director of Hellboy Animated: Blood and Iron. The feature is scheduled for release alongside the game, which arrives in 2010 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PSP.
