Namco BandaiNamco Bandai Games will be appearing this weekend at the MCM Expo in London, showing off their forthcoming game titles. As well as having signing sessions throughout both days, the company have two sessions scheduled on the Saturday morning. Of particular note, the creative team behind the Dark Souls 2 tie-in comic, Into the Light (which will be available on-line in January) will be there both days. For more information and a peek at the comic together with the Namco Bandai Schedule for the weekend and a fantastic video of Simon working on a page from the comic, click on!

Here’s the video of Simon at work. Quite hypnotic!

Dark Souls 2 Into the Light PageDark Souls 2 Into the Light CoverDark Souls 2: Into the Light is written by Rob Williams (Ghost Rider, Daken, Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark X-Men, Cla$$war, Star Wars Tales, Judge Dredd: Trifecta) and Andi Ewington (45) with art by Simon Coleby (Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, The Authority). The comic will be available in print from pre-orders at a number of selected retailers (to be announced). Looking at the cover and sample page on the right (click for a larger version), I think you’ll agree the comic looks pretty darn nice. There’s also a great video of Simon putting together one of the pages of the comic in time-lapse. Quite hypnotic to watch!
