Dayjob Studio presents Hotline Miami: Wildlife, an eight-issue monthly comic series that operates as a spin-off story set in the Hotline Miami universe. Told from the perspective of a new character Chris, Wildlife tells the tale of Chris’ struggle to deal with a coming war, his tendency towards self-destruction, and the mysterious pseudo-patriots of 50 Blessings.
The narrative will take fans of the Hotline Miami games to new locales and introduce new masked figures while exploring dark and disturbing themes reminiscent of the violent indie game series. While the story and events are not canon in the Hotline Miami universe, Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital blessed the project after Dayjob Studio’s brilliant work on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number digital comic series.
Dayjob Studio has a lot of experience expanding video game universes having also created comics based on Enter the Gungeon and Ronin. Each issue of Wildlife is written by Federico Chemello and Maurizio Furini with art by Alberto Massaggia, Ludovica Ceregatti (with Giorgia Lanza), Andrea Dotta and Andrea Errico.
The first issue of Hotline Miami: Wildlife is available now in PDF and CBR formats, you can also pre-purchase the entire series and save 25% off the cover price.
