Hmm. It’s proving quite the day for PC Game/Sequential Art cross-over. Following on from the L4D2 comic I noticed an interview at Comic Book Resources with Obsidian’s Chris Avellone about writing the Fallout: New Vegas prequel comic that Dark Horse are publishing. There’s been an upsurge of gaming comics in the last few years, with the first issue of Wildstorm’s Gears of War comic being apparently the biggest selling of the year… but it’s still relatively rare that they’re actually written by the creative minds behind the games themselves. It’ll be out on in Hardback on October 19th – the same day as its US release – and has a rather lovely hyper-detailed Geoff Darrow cover. If you’ve got an Iphone or Ipad, you can view a full preview here. I haven’t so, will just have to twiddle my fingers. Of course, with an Eisner-nomination for his Clone Wars comic work, Chris is hardly a newcomer to the medium, so it will hopefully be acceptably nifty.
