I am not going to lie, I am immensely excited for Naughty Dog’s “The Last of Us.” Granted, I never played “Uncharted” (I know, I know!), which was also made by Naughty Dog and I hear is amazing, but something about “The Last of Us” really catches my eyes. It could be the fact that the story is set two decades after a post-cordyceps-type fungus outbreak (this fungus can turn humans into hideous looking creatures), the world has gone to crap, and our protagonists are living in a harsh regime under Martial Law trying to escape.

Dark Horse Comics and Naughty Dog joined forces to bring us a prequel comic book mini-series cleverly titled “The Last of Us: American Dreams.” It will be co-written by Naughty Dog’s “The Last of Us” creative director Neil Druckmann and co-written and drawn Faith Erin Hicks (Friends with Boys). And providing the killer cover artwork is Julian Totino Tedesco (Thunderbolts, Uncanny X-Force).

Check out the first look at the preview pages and solicitation below:

The Last of Us American Dreams #1 cover

The comics-exclusive prequel to the new game from Naughty Dog! Creative director Neil Druckmann teams with breakout comics star Faith Erin Hicks to present the story of thirteen-year-old Ellie’s life in a violent, postpandemic world. A newcomer at a military boarding school, Ellie is reluctant to toe the line, which earns her new enemies—and her first glimpse of the world outside.
