Rockstar announced yesterday that a 3-part original Max Payne 3 comic series will be created in partnership between the game developer and Marvel Custom Solutions. The upcoming comic will be released as both a digital graphic novel and in limited print editions.
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.
Look for Issue #1: “After the Fall” to be released in the next few weeks for free via the Rockstar Newswire, the Max Payne 3 Official Site and additional digital comic channels. Stay tuned for more updates.
