Silent Hill: Past Life

A new comic book mini series based on the universe of the Silent Hill games will be releasing soon. Unlike past Silent Hill comics, this one will have more relevance to the games as its characters will also have significance in the next upcoming game currently being developed by a new team and given the working title of 'Silent Hill 8.' The comic is written by Tom Waltz who is no stranger to Silent Hill and comic book writing as he had also previously written for a previous Silent Hill comic called 'Silent Hill: Sinner's Reward' and he's also a co-writer for the next upcoming Silent Hill game.

The story for 'Past Life' goes back in time to the 1800s and follows a new character, an outlaw named Jebediah Foster and a widow named Esther. The story will be covered in 4 issues with the first releasing in October. You can learn more from reading interviews with Tom Waltz here and here.

Below you can watch the trailer for the next Silent Hill game which also focuses on a man who is running from the law. Fans of Silent Hill should let us know if they are interested in buying Silent Hill comics from our store!
