DC's Wildstorm imprint makes video game comic book magic once more with Nier, a three-part online comic book series detailing the fall of humanity and its lasting effects in Square Enix's upcoming action RPG.
Nier is a video game with a strong focus on one particular plot point: Nier fights to find a way to heal his disease-stricken daughter Yonah of the mysterious Black Scrawl, a deadly affliction that's brought humanity to its knees. A strong focus is good, but it leaves many unanswered questions. Where did The Black Scrawl come from? What's with the snarky talking book, Grimoire Weiss? What the hell is a "shit hog?"
