NYCC: Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Gets Comic Series From Dark Horse Comics

By on October 13, 2012

Straight from Dark Horse Comics at NYCC. Upcoming game The Last of Us will be receiving a Dark Horse comic series to accompany the game. See the press release below from Dark Horse Comics.

October 13, NEW YORK, NY—The most anticipated video game of 2013, The Last of Us, comes to print with a comic series and an art book from Dark Horse Comics and Naughty Dog!

The Last of Us: American Dreams will be a four-issue series by The Last of Us lead writer Neil Druckmann, with rising star Faith Erin Hicks (Zombies Calling, Friends with Boys, The Adventures of Superhero Girl) as cowriter and artist.

Ellie, the heroine of The Last of Us, has grown up in a postpandemic world, shuttled between military orphanages in one of the last remaining quarantine zones and resigned to the fact that when she’s old enough, she’ll be channeled into the army or left to fend for herself—until she meets an older girl determined to find a third way out. American Dreams explores Ellie’s backstory and her first steps on the road that led her to her companion Joel.

The first issue of The Last of Us: American Dreams will appear in the spring of 2013.

The Art of The Last of Us, a deluxe hardcover exploring the characters, the infected humans, and the intricately realized world of the game, will launch in conjunction with the release of the game.
