Video game developer Deep Silver has teamed up with Dark Horse Comics to bring zombie fans a brand new digital comic book based on the upcoming survival horror adventure Escape From Dead Island. Written by author Alex de Campi with artwork by Deadpool artist Mike Hawthorne, the first chapter of this three-part series will serve as a bridge between Dead Island 2 and the highly anticipated new title; due in stores later this month.
The comic book series is currently a digital exclusive; only available via online retailers. However, the first chapter is being offered for free to both Android and iOS users; while those with a Dark Horse account can login immediately and download the issue right now!
Death comes to the mainland! Richard and Marco were two ordinary slobs, until the zombie apocalypse gave them the chance to become heroes . . . or at least run around and scream a lot! Don’t miss the sidesplitting, gut-ripping digital-exclusive comic that ties directly into the hit Dead Island game series!
As we recently reported, Escape From Dead Island is actually a new spin-off of the popular zombie franchise. With highly-stylized graphics and an immersive single-player campaign, the upcoming title is being billed as a “survival mystery” game rather than the cooperative multiplayer experience offered by previous installments.
But as gamers anxiously await the official sequel, comic book fans can sample this free, zombie-drenched series from Dark Horse Comics online. Just visit the website for more details including artist information, release dates, cover art and a small free preview.
