Bethesda Softworks and Dark Horse Comics have announced that they’re teaming up to create a three-issue comic miniseries based on id Software’s upcoming Rage.
The series will be written by Arvid Nelsion (Rex Mundi) and penciled by Andrea Mutti (DMZ). The cover art (which you can see to your left) is being created by Glenn Fabry, best known for his work on Hellblazer and Preacher. The first issue will be available June 22 and will serve as a prequel to the game’s story:
This comic series, developed with the direct participation of Rage’s creative director, Tim Willits, presents a new twist on the post-apocalyptic near future as one woman discovers that the survival of humankind doesn’t necessarily mean the survival of humanity. The Earth has been devastated by a collision with an asteroid, with a tiny fraction of the population surviving in life-sustaining Arks buried deep below its surface. Those who survive emerge to find a wasteland controlled by a global military dictatorship called the Authority. But a rescued scientist learns that the Authority has lied to her and the other survivors about how this new world came to be.
Rage will be released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 13.
