Cult of the Lamb Is Expanding Beyond Games


The eerie yet cute vibes of Cult of the Lamb are expanding beyond games. In collaboration with Oni Press, publisher Devolver Digital has announced a series of comics and graphic novels based around developer Massive Monster’s roguelite.

The “ongoing publishing program,” according to a press release, is kicking things off with the graphic novel Cult of the Lamb: The First Verse, which has its own Kickstarter campaign. The $10,000 goal was surpassed minutes after launch, and bonuses include variant covers, slipcased editions, and an array of related merch.

The First Verse features writer Alex Paknadel (All Against All, Red Goblin) and artist Troy Little (Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas), set on expanding the game’s disturbingly charming universe.

“Massive Monster is thrilled to bring the dark yet colorful world of Cult of the Lamb into the realm of comic storytelling,” James Pearmain, art director at Massive Monster, said in the press release. “We can’t wait for fans to immerse themselves in the rich narrative and enchanting visuals that this adaptation promises to deliver. Offering new insights into Cult of the Lamb’s lore and world, we’re excited to share this unique perspective on the story with our dedicated community and newcomers alike.”

According to the campaign, shipping estimates are looking at December 2024 for the period to begin fulfillment of the campaign. Until then, friendly reminder that the highly anticipated sex update for the game was released in mid-January, called Sins of the Flesh, in case you’ve been waiting for an excuse to return to your cult duties.
