Blizzard Entertainment updated the Diablo – Legends of the Barbarian: Bul-Kathos pre-order page with 6-new images. This preview shows this graphic novel is tied to Diablo IV in a big way. For the first time in Diablo printed media, players will finally witness the moment in time when Lilith purges Sanctuary of the renegade angels and demons … long before the Sin War.

This graphic novel is definitely Rated-M showing blood, gore and explicit decapitations and tearing of limbs by sword. You can pre-order Diablo – Legends of the Barbarian: Bul-Kathos and expect it to ship on July 11, 2023.

You can read more about John Arcudi (author) and Geraldo Borges (artist) in my previous article (Feb 22).

Diablo – Legends of the Barbarian: Bul-Kathos Preview

At the dawn of Sanctuary, legends were born. Don’t miss this exclusive, original Diablo® graphic novel chronicling the rise of Bul-Kathos, progenitor of the barbarian class, and his ancient charge to defend Mount Arreat.

Long before Bul-Kathos became known as the father of barbarians, he was father to only two: his twin children Naarah and Hiram. Naarah followed her father’s path and became a great fighter, but the ways of their tribe never came naturally to Hiram. After years on walkabout, Hiram returns to his family, having discovered a new way . . . and a new power he seeks to claim with his father’s help.

From the Diablo® development team and storied author-artist duo John Arcudi and Geraldo Borges comes an unforgettable, stunningly illustrated tale. Legends of the Barbarian: Bul-Kathos is at once the myth of a mighty king whose name was forged in battle and the tragedy of a father who bears a heavy crown.
