The Evil Within’s backstory will be fleshed out in a four-part prequel comic series from Titan Comics.

IGN reports the comic will be written by Ian Edginton with art from Alex Sanchez. The cover art comes courtesy of Ben Templesmith.

Each issue will RRP for $4, with the first going on sale on August 27.

The comic tells the story of a young student on the hunt for a missing friend. The search leads Dana straight into Shinji Mikami’s messed up horror world, of course. Check out the cover below.

The Evil Within is due on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in late August.
