The lights are on
We first heard about the comic book prequel to The Last of Us back in October. Now the first of four issues is out in the wild.
The Last of Us: American Dreams tells "the story of thirteen-year-old Ellie's life in a violent, postpandemic world," reads the summary on Dark Horse's site. "A newcomer at a military boarding school, Ellie is reluctant to toe the line, which earns her new enemies—and her first glimpse of the world outside."
Credits include Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann on writing duties alongside writer/artist Faith Erin Hicks.
Head to the Dark Horse Digital store to see a preview page or buy the issue for $3.99.
Email the author Bryan Vore, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
4 issue mini-series? Hmm...well, I can't afford another monthly comic, even four issues. The Injustice comic was pretty much my last new ongoing for now.
This. Looks. Awesome.
Count me in, Dark Horse Comics (you too, Naughty Dog, I anticipate The Last of Us being amazing).
I hate the term comic book...
Reminds me of Scott Pilgrim, I like it.
I'll give it a shot.
Well, Ellie certainly looks.......odd.
This doesn't look half bad. I might as well pick it up.
The Last of Us is a great story to do a comic book for, Walking Dead style, but what's the deal with that crappy looking artwork? Joel and Ellie aren't Charlie Brown here. . .
I found the horse. Do I get a prize now?
The art style keeps reminding me of Scott Pilgrim. I'm not sure if I'll be able to take it seriously.
i might have to get it
As excited as I am for this game, I think I'll probably pass.
There is a teaser of this on Dark Horse's site for free. It's not bad. I'm just a little confused with the timeline though. Because in the teaser it looks like the pandemic is in its early days, but the game looks to be many years later with the vegetation growth and stuff blown to hell and back.
WE WANT YOU TO BUY THIS TO UNDERSTAND MORE THE GAME.
Is that the dark horse in the background? Har.
