Dark Horse has announced the release date for the first issue of the God of War comic prequel, subtitled Fallen God. It is due out on March 10th, although it was originally slated for release in June last year. The plans were disrupted by a pandemic.
The plot of Fallen God tells about the events leading up to Kratos’ journey to the North.
The Fallen God storyline follows Kratos after defeating Zeus. Believing that he is finally free from bondage, the God of War sets out into the wilderness, hoping to distance himself from his home and shame, but finding that anger and guilt follow him.
Kratos directs his anger against his only invincible enemy – himself. However, instead of winning the war against himself, he acquires only madness.
The screenwriter is Chris Roberson, whose works include comics for DC, Vertigo and Marvel. He also worked on a God of War comic that came out in 2018.
