Image Comics and Newsarama have made the first issue of the Dead Space
comic book available to read online
. The story in the six-part series takes place prior to the events of the video game on the USG Ishimura. Some finer details of the game might be spoiled by reading the comic, but those who've finished the game will get more backstory without having to read Ishimura crew logs.
The comic series was originally released earlier this year
and is also available now in a collected hardcover edition. If you want to know more of our thoughts about Dead Space
, be sure to check out our "Game of the Year" post
about this "strategic dismemberment" thriller.
