Bethesda Teams Up With Dark Horse to Release RAGE Comics [Wait, what?]

Bethesda Teams Up With Dark Horse to Release RAGE Comics [Wait, what?]

On June 22nd, Bethesda and Dark Horse Comics will release a three-issue comic series based on the upcoming game, RAGE. No doubt, this is just another way to get the name of the game buzzing in the geek-o-sphere. RAGE comes out in stores on September 13th in North America and the 16th in Europe.

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.

Here’s to hoping one of the speech bubbles will say “FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU.” Or, at the very least, have a panel with an easter egg saying “F7U12.”

Full press release below.

Update: Cover art has also been released.

Top Comic Picks for 3/2/11

Hey kids!  It’s your favorite host of the hilarious podcast, Comic Issues, coming back to you again with my top picks for the comic book week of 3/2/11.

With last week being pretty hard on my wallet, it was kinda nice to have a light week this time around.  Although, there’s no such thing as too many comic books.  Comics kick ass, and so do you, and good things come in light weeks.  If you dig anything I talk about today then be sure to keep an eye out for them at your local shop this Wednesday, and don’t forget to check out another awesome podcast from me and the guys.

Top Comic Book Picks for 2/23/11

 

Sweet Christmas!  What a comic book week it’s been for me. Hey kids it’s Anthony here again, plague carrying host of the Comic-Issues.com podcast.  This week I found myself picking up 11 books, which is huge for me.  I don’t have a job or lifestyle to allow me to buy as many books as I particularly would like, but I do try to keep myself satisfied.  Typically my stack of books tops off at about 6-8 a week.  This gives me enough that I’m happy, but honestly I’d like to take one of everything.

This week I turned a corner on a lot of story arcs, coming into the home stretch.  I got deeper into the Age of X, got one step closer to seeing the Death of Spider-Man, and watched Peter Parker mourn the death of everyone that he’s ever lost.  In the end when I had to pick my favorite I decided I just had to go with the one that made me laugh.

Also this time it appears the film will be from the perspective of other Lanterns aside from just Jordan.

Hey dudes and dudettes!  Anthony here, your favorite host of the insanely popular Comic Issues podcast (comic-issues.com), and I got to thinking!  We can’t be a podcast with the word “comic” in it without talking about what’s good on the new release wall at the local comic shop.  Thus let it now be told!

I, my dear reader, will let you in on what I feel made up the best of what came out for the week of 2/16/11.  I tell you only the best, because comics are a lot like pizza: you never know what you’re gonna get.

This Week's Comic Book Recommendation 7/13/09: Y: The Last Man

Posted by: |

ythelastman 1

This is my first post in what I’m hoping to become a regular thing. Each week I’ll be recommending a new comic book series/graphical novel for you to check out. When I first found myself drifting in to the world of comic books I felt overwhelmed. Unlike movies and video games, there aren’t many internet resources for comic book reviews and recommendations. So, if you’re looking for some comics to read, be sure to check PixelatedGeek every Monday (or so).

My first recommendation is a series called Y: The Last Man. It takes place in present time and follows the story of a young man named Yorick Brown. Yorick is a smart-ass, amateur escape artist, living in New York. His girlfriend, Beth, is traveling in Australia, when every mammal with a Y chromosome (only males have Y chromosomes, for those that didn’t pay attention to Biology in High School) is simultaneously killed. Every mammal with a Y chromosome that is, except for Yorick and his pet Monkey, Ampersand. Through out the story, Yorick and his counterparts struggle to keep his identity a secret as they attempt to navigate their way through the world’s crumbled societies to figure out exactly how and why Yorick and his monkey survived.
