Priest was a manhwa (Korean comic) series created by Hyung Min-woo. It fuses the Western genre with supernatural horror and dark fantasy themes and is notable for its unusual, angular art style. An interview with Hyung in Priest: Volume 3 states that the comic was inspired by the computer game Blood, which featured a similar horror-Western aesthetic and undead protagonist.
Priest was published in English by Tokyopop. The manhwa was adapted into the 2011 American horror film of the same name.
Director: Scott Charles Stewart
Writers: Cory Goodman, Min-Woo Hyung

Born in 1973, Hyung published his first manwha, Chronicle of a Hot-blooded Judo King, in 1994 and four years later the first volume of Priest caught the attention of readers around the world. Priest was made into a video game (not available in the US) and there's been rumors of a movie, but to date no official announcement has been made regarding the status of the project.
