This Comic's Cast:

DSWC is a simple comic, by and large. it's not too concerned with continuity or the deep drama of the Castlevania series. And yet, despite that, one comment I've heard is that DSWC is "too entrenched" in the lore of the Castlevania series and other game it parodies.

I guess it's a fair comment to make, as the comic does quick parodies of a lot of games, and if you don't know the games, you'll probably be lost.

That is what this intro series aims to help with. Hopefully this intro will provide enough broad facts about the Castlevania series and some other games included in DSWC to help those less knowledgeable navigate the series without being too lost.

Hopefully.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
