Remember the trailer for Hellgate: London that we treated you to back in March? Well there's a comic book version on the way to fill in some of the background on the mayhem:

The comic book provides the background story behind HELLGATE: LONDON. Issue “0” begins when MI5 service agent Lyra Darius discovers a human charnel house in London whilst investigating the affairs of recently resigned Home Office Minister, Lord Sumerisle. Soon afterwards, Lyra is entangled in a bloody conspiracy with the Knights Templar in the build-up to the Battle of All Hallows’ Eve.

Hmmm. We guess we'll see how it turns out, but game and movie comic adaptations tend to be the suck. Ian Edginton's Scarlet Traces left us cold and wishing that he and everyone else would leave that kind of thing to Alan Moore, so we're not terribly excited to hear he's writing the Hellgate books.

Dark Horse say that this tale about how mankind’s battle against demonic forces begins will thrill both gamers and comic book fans alike. So that's pretty much the nerd demographic sewn up then.

More on the game itself here.
