Back in February, Electronic Arts and Image Comics announced a new comic book series based upon the upcoming original survival horror video game Dead Space. This new six-comic book series set in the Dead Space universe, serves as a prequel story for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game that will be released on October 31st, 2008. The comic will be written and illustrated by Ben Templesmith and written by Antony Johnston.
This series tells the gut-wrenching tale of a deep space mining colony that unexpectedly pulls an ancient and vicious alien life force from the dark rock.
The first issue became available on March 3rd and to promote it they’ve released the first part of an animated Dead Space comic online. It’ll have you wondering “What the heck is that?” Something darn strange is going on around here.
