The Evil Within, the upcoming survival horror title from Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami, will be getting the comic book treatment with a four-part prequel series.

Created by Titan Comics, this prelude story to the hotly-anticipated horror focuses on student Dana, who is searching for a missing friend. Naturally, things don’t go too smoothly, with her hunt taking her to a world “fraught with tension and unimaginable horrors.”

Penned by Ian Edginton, the first chapter launches alongside The Evil Within on August 27, and will set you back $4 for the 32-page story.

The Evil Within is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
