Although the release of Naughty Dog’s highly-anticipated title ‘The Last of Us’ is still two-months away at this point, fans can start diving into a few of the game’s characters.
Naughty Dog and Dark Horse Publishing are releasing a four-issue series based on the game called ‘The Last of Us: American Dreams’. The story will follow one of the lead character’s in the title, the 13 year old girl named Ellie. The series will introduce, then subsequently follow Ellie, starting with her introductory to military school. The Lead Writer and Creative Director ‘Neil Druckmann’ (who we had the great pleasure of interviewing last year for the upcoming game) worked with famed illustrator Faith Erin Hicks to produce the series. The comics are available at standard comic-retailers. Fans can pick up ‘The Last of Us’ on June 14, 2013 when the game will be released exclusively for the PS3.
