Spicy Horse Studios announced that they are working with Dark Horse Comics on a comic version of Akaneiro: Demon Hunters. Written by Justin Aclin (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and illustrated by Vasilis Lolos (Conan the Barbarian), the comics follow Kani, a young woman torn between two cultures, on an epic adventure hunting Yokai as a member of the fabled Order of Akane.
“Though I hate being categorized as some sort of auteur, I’m thrilled to be working again with the rocket-scientist sex machines at Dark Horse,” said Spicy Horse Studio head American McGee. “Our previous collaborations with Dark Horse have produced stunning results, like the art book for Alice: Madness Returns. It’s a perfect marriage of art and execution.”
The comic has an original story expanding the universe of Akaneiro, featuring covers by the Spicy Horse artists creating the game, this three-issue comics series debuting on May 22.
