Darkstalkers/Red Earth: Maleficarum is a 200 page black and white manga written and illustrated by Mami Itō who is also known for her work on ROBOT, Pilgrim Jägar and Super Street Fighter II X Gaiden. The manga focuses on Capcom's Darkstalkers series (Vampire in Japan) as well as Red Earth (Warzard in Japan).
The manga was originally released only in Japan on October of 1997 as Capcom Selection Maleficarum (カプコン・セレクション マレフィカールム, Kapukon Serekushon Marefikārumu) and published by Shinseisha. In 2010, Udon Entertainment translated and released the manga as Darkstalkers/Red Earth: Maleficarum Vol 1.
Written and drawn by Mami Itou (ROBOT, Pilgrim Jäger) Maleficarum is video game manga at its best. This standalone volume includes five short stories from across the monstrous Darkstalkers universe, as well as a four-chapter tale featuring the swords & sorcery world of Red Earth. You’ll see succubus Morrigan fight the wolfman Talbain, the devilish Jedah confront vampire lord Demitri, the heroic lion-man Leo questing to cure his cursed body, and several more fantastic tales. Also included are gag strips and artist commentary.
