Cult of the Lamb was released to huge success back in 2022, and it looks like they are here to stay! Spinning out of the events of the game is Cult of the Lamb: The First Verse, the game’s first graphic novel. The book was funded in an unbelievable 6 minutes, so it’s pretty clear there’s a lot of demand!

The book seems to follow the events of the game, just with a little more lore to look forward to. Check out a description of what to expect below.

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.
