Return to the very beginnings of the Dark Souls story with a dramatic
retelling of the Legends of Gwyn – Lord of Cinder and Knight
Artorias. Tying directly into the very first Dark Souls videogame
and featuring all the main characters!
Discovering the ashes of Lord Gwyn at the Kiln of the First Flame,
Silver Knight Arkon – his armor charred black by the Flames of
Izalith – returns to his homelands with rage within his heart.
Meanwhile, the undead curse grows rampant within Anor Londo, claiming
Dragonknight Gravis among others, while Channeller Liste finally
falls foul of the machinations of the monstrous Seath the Scaleless.
Desperate to save the life of his brother Drew from the grisly
shocker of last issue, Magnus finds that he's failed his brother and
family. However, Magnus doesn't do failure—other people fail. Magnus
reevaluates and renegotiates, even if that means making a deal with
the devil . . . a deal that puts the world in danger. Magnus refuses
to take failure lying down.
