The long running and popular fantasy horror role-playing game Kult was originally created in Sweden by Gunilla Jonsson and Michael Petersén way back in 1991. Notable for its philosophical and religious depth as well as its extreme violence and mature content Kult is a ‘cult classic’ amongst RPG fans.

The story of Kult is set in contemporary times but borrows from gnostic beliefs to present our world as an ‘Illusion’ behind which a darker and sinister ‘Reality’ lurks filled with unspeakable horrors and evil. Characters in the RPG experience an ‘Awakening’, granting them special powers and allowing them to see both parts of existence, including the monsters and terrors that lie beyond. Sounds like it would make an excellent horror comic!

Well it just so happens that Dark Horse is releasing a 4 part mini series set in the world of Kult.

Dark Horse claim

The Kult series introduces this setting anew with parole officer Tomas Zenk, one of the few who can pierce the illusion. As he overcomes monsters sent to kill him, Zenk discovers the true extent of his powers, including the ability to exert control over the machinery of humanity’s enslavement. But will he aid the forces attempting to bring down the illusion . . . or succumb to the temptations of power?

Issue 1 is now available. Find out more, including a 6 page preview, on the Dark Horse website.
