Titan Comics has announced a new ongoing comic series based on the popular video game Horizon Zero Dawn from developer Guerrilla Games! Even better? Horizon Zero Dawn game writer Anne Toole is serving as writer on the book, and it'll kick things off with a special Free Comic Book Day edition that'll lead into the actual ongoing series. Given the upcoming book's description, it also sounds like all of this takes place after the events of the game itself -- which could mean this will be the first good look at what a sequel might be like.
Free Comic Book Day, for those that might not be aware, is an event that a number of local comic book stores take part in where they offer a bunch of different comics for free. These comics are often specifically manufactured and branded to be given away at the event, and sometimes serve as either samplers of content or promotional material for upcoming releases. Free Comic Book Day 2020 is set to be held on May 2, 2020.
You can check out the cover for the Free Comic Book Day comic below:
Here's the full information on the new comic, straight from Titan Comics' solicits:
