The Last Of Us: American Dreams Paperback Available Now

If you're a comic book fan, you'll definitely want to pick up the latest offering from iconic comic producer, Dark Horse.

"The Last Of Us: American Dreams" is now available for purchase in paperback form. The story is set a short time before the events of Naughty Dog's acclaimed game, and it gives fans a chance to learn more about the unnervingly dead post-apocalyptic world through which Joel and Ellie traveled.

The plot centers on Ellie and a friend named Riley. Riley didn't appear in the game, but the relationship does help to explain Ellie's behavior toward Joel when they first meet. "America Dreams" is co-written by Faith Erin Hicks and Neil Druckmann, and Hicks also provided the art work. You can preview the first 6 pages and if you like 'em, you can pony up the $16.99 required to buy the comic.

Comic books have been tied in with video games for decades. Not exactly surprising, as both were common "geek" trends. I still run into people that assume that because I play video games, I've got an old comic book collection somewhere, too. Well, I don't. Most I ever did was read the old "Archie" comics my dad used to have; never got into the superhero craze.

Depends on how many pages it is. I dumped $250 on the entire Japanese rerelease of the Dragonball/Dragonball Z manga about 6 years ago. It was a 37 book set though so...

Holy balls man, I guess when you look at it from the perspective of a collection it's different.

Oh man I couldn't pass it up. I found the entire collection wrapped fresh in the Japanese book store near my house when I lived in Cali. They come in a bigger sized print, made with much better quality paper than the original press, new dust jackets with all new drawings on them and 3 extra add-on content books. It was HUGE!! I have it sitting on my dresser right now. It's glorious!!! Haha

Oh I hate it when a series expands to other formats to reveal more in the story! If you have a series keep it to one format, it just gets so irritating. Why could this content not be in the for of DLC... there is no excuse. The same goes for novelizations or online series...

One should be able to pick up the game and experience everything. A statement of mine which is becoming more vulnerable as the industry moves on... But just because the industry is changing there morals I shall not. Keep it in the game please.

Trust me, it doesn't reveal anything more in the story. It's really just its own thing. It doesn't necessarily tell you more about Ellie that you didn't know already. You see how Ellie and Marlene meet, but even that's hinted at in the main story.

I think it was more, let the writer/artist of the comic take a unique look at the TLOU world. I think Ellie is the only character Neil Druckmann had complete control of.

So yeah, don't worry, you're not missing out. That said the comic books are really cool, even if like Ben I'm not really a comic book fan.
