RAGE Comic Issue #2 Now Available

by on July 20, 2011

Back in June, we brought you the news that the first issue of the three part RAGE comic was available, and we also showed you the cover art. This time around we (again) have the cover art for you, but the first few pages of the comic too. We think you’ll agree, it looks pretty cool!

Based on id Software’s upcoming first-person shooter RAGE, 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 the Authority has seized power and is carrying out cruel “experiments” on radiation victims, but when a scientist discovers the true extent of its deceptions, she finds herself an enemy of the state, with only a fledgling resistance to turn to.

The three-issue comic book series is an original miniseries written by Arvid Nelson, the acclaimed creator of Rex Mundi, and penciled by Andrea Mutti (DMZ). The cover art was created by Glenn Fabry, best known for his work on Hellblazer and Preacher. Set prior to the events in the game, the comics are an extension of the RAGE universe and provide insights into the game’s over arching storyline.
