Cult of the Lamb has become an indie darling on Switch and other platforms for its creative gameplay and darkly cute aesthetic. Now, the game’s universe is branching out into the medium of graphic novels. A Kickstarter for Cult of the Lamb: The First Verse launched just today, and has already been funded with nearly $200,000.

Cult of the Lamb: The First Verse will consist of four comics published by Oni Press, written by Alex Paknadel, and illustrated by Troy Little. More artists and creative contributors will be revealed over the course of the campaign. There are multiple tier options for backers, including digital and physical editions of the comic, special variant covers, and more.

In a land pervaded by cruelty and evil, the most innocent among us – young Lamb, the last of their kind – was selected to become a final, dark sacrifice. Their death would forever seal the darkest of the Old Gods from our realm and usher in a new age ruled by the four eldritch Bishops of the Old Faith. So Lamb died… then forged a deal of their own.

At the crossroads of eternity, Lamb was met by the imprisoned deity known as The One Who Waits, who revealed the lies and distortions of the false prophets who rule the world above. And so, Lamb was bequeathed the power and responsibilities of the Red Crown and returned to the land of living with unholy powers to exact vengeance and deliver a new cult unto the Earth.

The Bishops of the Old Faith must fall … The disbelievers must be destroyed … And, as Lamb assembles their flock, a new master shall reign over creation!

Presenting all four issues of Oni Press’ upcoming CULT OF THE LAMB comic book series in one deluxe, 112-page collection from heretic-smashing creators Alex Paknadel and Troy Little, the hit Devolver Digital / Massive Monster video game is reborn as an all-new graphic novel exploring and expanding the second life of the sacrifice turned spiritual warlord known simply as Lamb.
