First Dead by Daylight comic will focus on The Legion

Dead by Daylight is set to have its very first comic release next year, with the focus being on the pack of Killers known as The Legion.

Dead by Daylight is a game that’s interesting stories have always lay beneath the surface, wit.h bits and pieces of it being slowly unveiled via the game’s Archives – a system that lets players discover more of the memories of the Killers and Survivors they play, as well as the mishmashed world that makes up the cat-and-mouse game.

The series has expanded substantially in the past few years, collaborating with partners such as Attack on Titan, For Honor and even Psyop, who Behaviour Interactive worked with to create their very own dating sim, Hooked On You.

Now the team at Behaviour Interactive are looking to step into the world of comic books with the first issue of Dead by Daylight releasing in March 2023. The issue will focus on fan-favourite Killers, The Legion – a close-knit group of four troubled teenagers with a streak of violence that resides deep within their hearts. Their leader is Frank, a high school dropout whose interest in killers draws in the troubled small-town girl Julie. They are joined by jokester Joey, as well as the shy and naive Susie.

In this story, written by Harvey Award winner Nadia Shammas (Squire, Where Black Stars Rise), with art by Dillon Snook (Bluefall) and published by Titan Comics, we’ll follow the start of their relationship and how it led to the formation of a group that would come to terrorize innocents within the Fog.

“Comic books hold a special place in my heart as with many people on the team. What an awesome
time for Dead by Daylight, appearing in this format for the first time. The Legion is quite an interesting
set of characters. They are great to dig into since they embody the very universal themes of teen
angst, rage and revenge,” says Mathieu Côté, Head of Partnerships for Behaviour Interactive. “Seeing
our stories and characters coming to life on the page is a wonderful feeling and we hope our fans will
appreciate it as much as we do. Stay tuned!”

The English version of Dead by Daylight Issue #1 will hit comic shops and digital devices in March
2023.
