We all know that Kratos was a figure you did not want to mess with; and as angry as he was when it came to fighting and decapitating his foes, he also had a sexual appetite that matched. However, the latest 2018 take on God of War showcased a more mellow and non-sexual Kratos, and it looks like this new comic series by Dark Horse will explain why.
According to website screenrant.com, we learn that this new God of War comic book series titled God of War: Fallen God will focus on Kratos’ journey from the end of God of War 3 leading up to the most recent (2018) entry on the PS4.
The website notes that this series will seemingly focus on Kratos’ familiar behavior leading to his [current year] edition.
As for the story behind God of War: Fallen God, it follows Kratos attempting to move forward from his bloody past after his victorious battles against Zeus and Athena.
In addition to the above, Kratos finds that it’s difficult to forget his past as he tries to build a new life for himself in the remote Norse wilds. While seeking to discard his rage, he inadvertently sparks a feud with a berserker cult after attempting to save a stranger from an abnormal bear.
Furthermore, Chris Roberson will pen God of War: Fallen God — the one behind iZombie and The Dragon’s Nine Sons. Tony Parker — who worked on This Damned Band — will serve as the artist, while Dan Jackson — of The Strain and The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys — will do the coloring.
John Roshell, behind the Overwatch Anthology and Astro City, will work on the lettering, while the following image is done by Dave Rapoza:
The first issue of God of War: Fallen God is planned to release on June 24th, 2020. It will focus on Kratos raging against the one foe that has proven to be unconquerable – himself.
