Tokyopop’s big San Diego news is that the long-delayed film Priest, based on the manhwa (Korean comic) by Min-Woo Hyung, will finally be released in May 2011, with Paul Bettany in the lead.

At this afternoon’s Priest panel at Comic-Con International, Tokyopop staffers introduced a Priest iPhone/iPad app and showed off a sneak peek of the full-color comic prequel Priest: Purgatory, available exclusively at the convention — oh, and here, where we have the cover and a three-page preview after the cut.

Priest: Purgatory will debut in comic stores on Aug. 1.

I would like to see Greg Capullo drawing this.
I don’t know if this is the right style to use on a Priest comic.
Everything on the story is sci-fi and fantasy, and this artist draws on a realistic way.
I will only buy this comic because I’m a fan of the story, and not because of it’s art.
