A video game based on a comic is going to be made into… well, a comic.

At New York Comic Con today, DC announced that they were producing The Wolf Among Us as their first Vertigo digital title. Vertigo’s official information on the release is as follows:

The first-ever Digital First Vertigo title will be FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US, based on the critically-acclaimed episodic game series from Telltale Games licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The story will be written by Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus with art by Steve Sadowski, Travis Moore, and Shawn McManus. The cover artist for the series is Chrissie Zullo. FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US will be a weekly Digital First series and is set to debut in December 2014 with print collections to follow in 2015.

Although it is based in the Fables world, the events in Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us take place before those in the book, so it won’t be exactly a rehash of the existing comic series. It’ll be interesting to see how the choices that the player makes in the game translates into a comic (unless, of course, it was in Choose your own Adventure format).
