Marvel At The Upcoming Max Payne Comic
Rockstar and Marvel are teaming up to bring you a 3-part Max Payne comic series which will be out in “the next few weeks.” Even original Max Payne developer, Remedy is somewhat involved with the studio’s Sam lake being part of the creative team.
As Marvel explains: “Written by Dan Houser and Remedy’s Sam Lake, and featuring cover art from Greg Horn and pencils/inks by Fernando Blanco, this original Max Payne 3 comic series will delve into Max’s troubled past – exploring the events that occurred in and around both Max Payne and Max Payne 2, leading up to Max Payne 3 while also shedding new light on Max’s early years.”
The comics will be released as digital graphic novels and also be printed in limited editions. The first issues will be launched as a free digital comic on the official Max Payne site in “the next few weeks” and has been titled “After the Fall.” It’s safe to assume that the comic will thus fill in some of the blanks between Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne and Max Payne 3.
The game itself is out on May 18 for consoles while PC boys will have to wait until June 1.
