Netflix’s Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CG animated series will be getting a graphic novel. The graphic novel will be published by TOKYOPOP. The publisher revealed during it York Comic Con Metaverse panel that it will publish a “manga-style” graphic novel based on the Resident Evil anime which will be released simutanously with the series’ premiere.
TOKYOPOP says the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness “graphic novel series will follow protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield in an adaptation of the CG animation.” Constantin Film is producing the Netflix anime show with The Walking Dead’s Bronwen Hughes directing. Supernatural writer Andrew Dabb is penning the scripts.
The Netflix series will tell its new story across two timelines. In the first, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. The second, more than a decade into the future sees less than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this new world, while the secrets from her past — about her sister, her father and herself — continue to haunt her.
