Resident Evil goes manga, serves as a prequel to Resident Evil 6

New title from Viz Media

Resident Evil goes manga in a new series from Viz Media. Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire serves as a prequel to Capcom’s Resident Evil 6, created by Naomi Serizawa. The 5-volume series launches November 18 on Viz’s Signature imprint. 

It seems we’ll learn how the dreaded C-virus gets its start. A student suffers a transformation at Singapore’s Marhawa Academy. Soon after, Chris Redfield and his team are called in.  Viz says the manga also gives us some back story to Chris’ partner, Piers Nivans. 

What do you think, fellow manga readers?
