Lacuna Coil have collaborated with the Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, Iron Maiden’s official game, with a themed dungeon event and new character – The Shadow Sorceress – based on Cristina Scabbia.

Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast adds:

This wicked wielder of dark magic harnesses her rage and transforms it into powerful spells. Her basic attack, Sword of Anger, removes beneficial effects from her target and will inflict Smite on all enemies!

Lacuna Coil have announced today that, after the successful collaboration with DC – most recently with Dark Nights: Death Metal, the band intend to release a whole mini-series of comic books with them in lead roles. Each issue of the mini-series will be based thematically on the style and lyrics of each of Lacuna Coil’s albums.

Singer Cristina has this to say about the series – “We’re really excited about this. We love comics, and the idea of having super-powers is something that everyone dreams of! I can’t wait to see what fans think of this!”

Cristina refused to reveal what powers each of the band member have, but did reveal: “Inspired by the body-paint art from our first album, Issue 1 starts with Andrea and I coming out of a magical pool like fish-spirits that take over mortal bodies…”

The first issue, “In A Reverie“, is due for release in April, with “Unleashed Memories” to follow in May.
