Behemoth Comics' Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Death Upon Us will dive headlong into Bohemia, just as its ruler King Wenceslaus IV is captured by his evil half-brother, King Sigismund. The four-issue series will delve into King Sigismund (with his Cuman mercenaries) and his cohort Istvan Toth (and his bandit army)'s raids on Bohemian villages for valuables - and also to stamp out Wenceslaus loyalists.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Death Upon Us is written by Brett Murphy and drawn by Wilson Gandolpho - both coming off their creator-owned series Paranormal Hitmen (opens in new tab) (also published by Behemoth). Gandolpho and Niko Walter both draw covers for the book.
Here's a four-page preview of Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Death Upon Us:
The Kingdom Come: Deliverance game is an open-world RPG set in historically accurate 15th-century Czech lands, following the semi-historical struggles in the Roman Empire's province of Bohemia. By the time the game begins Bohemia is already overrun by the invaders, and the story follows a young man named Henry from a mining town as his life is turned upside down and he's pulled into his country's war. The setting and gameplay are grounded in a realism that excludes typical medieval RPG genre trappings like magic, spells, and mythical creatures, instead focusing on believable stories and battles.
Originally released in 2018, Kingdom Come: Deliverance received largely positive reviews and ultimately sold over 4 million units.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance #1 (of 4) goes on sale in June.
