“The comics hold a special place in my heart, as it does for many people on the team. What an awesome time for Dead by Daylight, appearing in this format for the first time. The Legion is a pretty interesting set of characters. They are great to dig into because they embody the very universal themes of teenage angst, rage and revenge,” says Mathieu Côté, Head of Partnerships for Behavior Interactive. “Seeing our stories and characters come to life on the page is a wonderful feeling and we hope our fans enjoy it as much as we do. Stay tuned!”
“The Legion are the perfect killers to kick off the Dead by Daylight comics. The group is an inherently recognizable and ubiquitous evil, which can be far scarier than the gore or the grotesque. Nadia and Dillon provide real nuance to the descent into the darkness of the Legion,” says Phoebe Hedges, Managing Editor of Titan Comics. “It’s so exciting to bring Dead by Daylight to the comic book page. We really bring the tension of the game and turn it into an exciting story.
