Well, Dark Horse will now help to bring more when they publish a prequel comic to The Last of Us in the Spring of 2013, titled The Last of Us: American Dreams.
The four-issue comic will be written by Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann and co-writer/artist Faith Erin Hicks and will follow Ellie's "first steps" of the journey that will eventually result in the character meeting your character in the game, Joel. American Dreams will also introduce readers to another character, Riley who accompanies Ellie on her adventure. Even if you don't intend to buy the game, Druckmann does say that the story can stand on its own. If you do play the game, you'll get more depth out of both the comic and the game.
Though The Last of Us: American Dreams will be released in Spring 2013, Druckmann would not say when the game will be released. Dark Horse has announced that a deluxe hardcover art book for The Last of Us will be released in conjunction with the game..
