If you're a comic book fan, you'll definitely want to pick up the latest offering from iconic comic producer, Dark Horse.
"The Last Of Us: American Dreams" is now available for purchase in paperback form. The story is set a short time before the events of Naughty Dog's acclaimed game, and it gives fans a chance to learn more about the unnervingly dead post-apocalyptic world through which Joel and Ellie traveled.
The plot centers on Ellie and a friend named Riley. Riley didn't appear in the game, but the relationship does help to explain Ellie's behavior toward Joel when they first meet. "America Dreams" is co-written by Faith Erin Hicks and Neil Druckmann, and Hicks also provided the art work. You can preview the first 6 pages and if you like 'em, you can pony up the $16.99 required to buy the comic.
Comic books have been tied in with video games for decades. Not exactly surprising, as both were common "geek" trends. I still run into people that assume that because I play video games, I've got an old comic book collection somewhere, too. Well, I don't. Most I ever did was read the old "Archie" comics my dad used to have; never got into the superhero craze.
