Devolver Digital partners with Oni Press to publish first ever Cult of the Lamb comics and graphic novels 

Devolver Digital has partnered with Oni Press to create the first ever series of comics and graphic novels based on Massive Monster’s global video game phenomenon Cult of the Lamb. The pre-order campaign for Cult of the Lamb: The First Verse is currently causing a stir on Kickstarter where it racked up 1,400 followers in just 18 hours and has nearly 7,000 backers with three weeks to go. The Kickstarter campaign runs until 12 April with new surprise items and stretch goals unlocked throughout. Cult of the Lamb: The First Verse will be published on 5th June 2024.  

The all-new series adapting and expanding Cult of the Lamb’s sprawling cosmology is being created by comic book royalty – Alex Paknadel (All Against All, Red Goblin) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Troy Little (Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas). 

Devolver Digital head of global licensing and partnerships Fée Heyer said: “Cult of the Lamb has been an amazing success since launch, expertly tapping into the cultural zeitgeist that has seen fandom for cute, yet demonic content go next level. We’re over the moon to now partner with Oni Press to create comic books and graphic novels for Cult of the Lamb fans and we’re not even embarrassed to admit we’re more than a little starstruck that Alex Paknadel and Troy Little are the incredible talent behind them.” 

Hunter Gorinson, president and publisher of the multiple Eisner Award and Harvey Award-winning publisher Oni Press, said “Cult of the Lamb is one of the most creatively energising concepts to emerge from the world of video games in recent years – thanks in all arenas to the hard work and exceptional vision of Devolver Digital. It’s little surprise that Cult of the Lamb has found many millions of ardent followers around the globe, and both Oni Press and our creators are committed to serving Lamb’s dark justice with a graphic novel extrapolation that will enrapture longtime fans and introduce a new legion of readers to this darkly hilarious and compellingly entertaining world.” 

James Pearmain, art director at developer Massive Monster, said: “Massive Monster is thrilled to bring the dark yet colourful world of Cult of the Lamb into the realm of comic storytelling. 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.” 

Since its debut in 2022, Cult of the Lamb has grown a following of millions with amusingly dark, satirically biting adventures that cast players into the role of Lamb – a supernaturally resurrected cult leader empowered by an impossibly ancient deity to recruit followers into the thrall of his doom-laden gospel.  

Heralded as “adorably demonic” by IGN and “troublingly compelling” by The Guardian, Cult of the Lamb ‘s genre-bending collision of anthropomorphic animals and folk-horror iconography amidst a crumbling world of ritual and ruin has earned it widespread critical acclaim and a long list of preeminent games industry awards and nominations – including three BAFTA nominations, a win for “Best Indie Game” from the Golden Joystick Awards, and a win for “Game of the Year” from the Gayming Awards.  

Most recently, in January 2024, Devolver Digital and Massive Monster released Cult of the Lamb: Sins of the Flesh, the game’s much anticipated DLC expansion, garnering millions of downloads in its first week of release.
