IDW Publishing announced today that the hit video game franchise Borderlands will return to comics this summer.

This July, IDW brings a new, canonical chapter to the hit franchise in the original comic mini-series The Fall of Fyrestone. Returning to the strange and deadly world of Pandora are Roland, Mordecai, Lilith, and Brick, who embark on an adventure as bizarre as the planet itself!

Following the footsteps of IDW's hit mini-series Borderlands: Origins, The Fall of Fyrestone sees The Vault Hunters step off of Marcus's bus to find a city in turmoil and a threat that will take everything they have to overcome.

"Working on Borderlands: Origins was, without a doubt, one of my most fun experiences as an editor at IDW," said editor Tom Waltz. "All the insane excitement of the mega-popular video game—not to mention its patented snarky humor—were brought to bear in that series, and with our same dynamic creative team on board for The Fall of Fyrestone, I guarantee you we'll be turning up the dial way past eleven this time around!"

The new series welcomes back the creative team of writer Mikey Neumann (who returns to Borderlands, having written not only Origins but also the original game) and artist Agustin Padilla.

"Since we finished up Origins, I've been waiting for the opportunity to continue onward in the story now that the Vault Hunters have met up on the bus," said Neuman. "No, seriously. I've been waiting outside of Tom Waltz's house since we shipped the last issue. My hair has birds in it and I've been forced to eat them for nourishment. Tom doesn't look at me the same way anymore, but I know he's just as excited to be back (and also chuffed that I'm off his lawn)."

The over-the-top franchise made waves with two highly successful videogames, and as a comic in the 2012 series Borderlands Origins. A Telltale Games series set in the world of Borderlands is coming soon with voice acting from Talking Dead's Chris Hardwick and The Tick's Patrick Warburton.
