The lights are on
The four-issue The Last of Us comic book miniseries debuted back in April. Now, Dark Horse has released a paperback compilation today. The Last of Us: American Dreams tells a prequel story to Naughty Dog’s hit game from the eyes of Ellie.
Head over to the Dark Horse to check out a preview of the first six pages. The post-pandemic tale will set readers back $16.99. For more on The Last of Us, check out our review and an extensive piece on possible ways the story might have unfolded.
Our TakeIf fans of The Last of Us missed the American Dreams series, now is a great time to pick up the series. I usually wait for comics to be compiled into larger volumes. Plus, I heard American Dreams changed the game’s ending, which means I’m forced to check this series out.

Going to the comic book store tonight to pick this up. Love the last of us, game of the year.
I really like the art of it. I need to play the actual game before I get this though.
It changed the ending because Neil Druckmann originally thought the ''story'' would center around Ellie killing someone for the first time, but in the comic she kills someone... so he was like, ''Yeah, we need to make it about Joel deciding not to save the world.''
I absolutely enjoyed The Last Of Us and it was a complete story in my mind. For that reason I have no interest in external mediums to expand the lore since I like the characters and settings as they are. I don't want to tarnish my respect for Naughty Dog's master piece by delving into lore that I don't need and risk seeing a side of a character that tarnishes their image in my mind.
However, if Naughty Dog is able to create something new and equally compelling in this world I would be willing to give it a try. Any follow ups or tie-ins to the existing plot of the main game is a risk to cheapening the story experience.
I want this for sure.
I have the first issue, but never got the rest.
I wonder if this will become available as an e-book?
So ordering this online!!!
