Resident Evil 6 received a prequel comic in Japan, and it’s now coming to North America this November. It stars Chris Redfield before the events of Capcom’s critically divisive sequel.

Anime News Network reports that the comic series will be published in five parts and explained the origins of the C-virus, with art and script by Naoki Serizawa.

It takes place in Singapore’s Marhawa High School, where a professor and his nephew find themselves trapped as the outbreak begins around them. Enter Chris Redfield and his Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance squad to take care of business.

Look out for the first volume in November.
