NYCC 2012 – Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Receives Dark Horse Comics Series!

One most anticipated video games 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 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.
