The Last of Us graphic novel in development from Naughty Dog, Dark Horse
The Last of Us is getting a graphic novel form Dark Hourse and Naughty Dog. At the NYCC today the novel will emphasize Ellie and the events leading up to the game.
Polygon has stated the artwork presented during the panel depicted a crumbling city. Ellie was shown as a child along with another girl named Rachel.
Naughty Dog Designer Neil Druckman said “In Ellie’s world, when you enter into its version of middle school, you can either choose to become a soldier and go out and fight, or you can say no and go out to fend for yourself with the other survivors,” Druckman said. “Those are the two ways a teenager can live in this world. Ellie believes there is a third way.
“Ellie is living in a world when she wants to be innocent, but can’t be. She’ll find things like a CD player and other pieces of civilization before the game’s event. She’ll get glimpses of the life she can’t have.”
Dark Hourse, the same comic company that does the Mass Effect comics will publish.
