Dark Horse has just announced new comic written by Matt Kindt, with art by Matthew Southworth, to tie into the storyline for the upcoming Capcom video game, Remember Me. Besides featuring a thirteen page preview of Dark Horse's The Art of Remember Me, this comic will also be notable for marking the exact point when Kindt went from being a hip, underground sensation to a washed-up, mainstream sellout, at least according to the group of hipsters who like to lean against the wall outside the Outhouse offices, smoking Marlboro lights.
"I was into Matt Kindt back when he did Revolver, man," said one hipster, nonchalantly, when we asked her for comment. "You know, back when he was good."
"Oh yeah, man? I was into him when he did Super Spy," another hipster retorted from deep inside his hooded sweatshirt.
"I was into him when he was on Frankenstein at DC…" began a third before the other two pelted him with half-empty cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, which they insisted they were drinking because they enjoy the taste.
"What?!" the insulted hipster argued. "I was into him ironically!"
"Ooooooh," nodded the other two approvingly. They went back to leaning against the wall, looking quite bored.
Though the hipsters warn that this video game tie-in comic is sure to mark Kindt's long descent into corporate mediocrity, we think it sounds pretty damn cool, and we also recommend you pick up Mind MGMT, which is easily one of the top two or three ongoing comics being published today.
"Don't tell them to do that, man!" protested one of our hipsters. "You'll ruin it for everyone!"
"You Outhousers are so uncool," said another.
We're uncool ironically, we told them, settling the argument.
Here's the press release:
MATT KINDT PENS ALL-NEW COMIC TIE-IN TO CAPCOM’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SCI-FI ACTION-ADVENTURE GAME REMEMBER ME™!
Customers who preorder the Remember Me video game through GameStop will receive an exclusive print comic, featuring an original story and a preview of Dark Horse’s upcoming art book!
As Capcom gears up for the release of what is sure to be one of the year’s most-talked-about video games, Dark Horse is proud to announce its part in furthering the Remember Me story line. The publisher has tapped Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT, 3 Story) to write a special ten-page comic story, with art by Matthew Southworth. In addition, this comic will feature a thirteen-page preview of Dark Horse’s upcoming The Art of Remember Me, which will be released on June 5, the day after the game’s release!
Remember Me is a third-person action-adventure game set in Neo-Paris, 2084, where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite Memory Hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities, have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity. During the course of the story, Nilin will start remembering who she was and relearning all the fighting moves that made her one of the world’s leading Memory Hunters.
In the exclusive print comic, Nilin’s undercover mission at a high-society party is compromised when her target is assassinated. Now she has to manipulate the crowd’s memories to avoid being framed for the murder. Who better to write this tale of “mind management” than Eisner Award nominee Matt Kindt!
Fans who preorder Remember Me through GameStop will receive this exclusive twenty-four-page comic, featuring art from the game and the ten-page comic story that provides players with additional insight into Nilin! To guarantee your copy, click here to order from GameStop today!
