Dead Island Prequel Comic Available Digitally Now

Looking to get in the mood for the upcoming Dead Island? Check out the official prequel comic from Marvel.

Games and comics are a good match for each other. There's often a lot of crossover between enthusiasts of both media, and there have been a number of successful "extended universe" publications on game-related properties in the past. The latest to join the fray is Deep Silver's Dead Island, which gets a prequel comic from Marvel today.

The comic follows the story of journalist Roger Howard, sent to Banoi to investigate the illegal exploitation of the island's resources. Suddenly, zombies, and you can probably guess the rest.

The comic was written by William Dailey with artwork from Jorge Lucas, Juan Santacruz, Diego Olmos, Carlos Rodriguez and Sergio Arino. The cover was designed by Christian Nauck. The whole six page comic was previously only available as a limited edition printed version at Comic-Con in July -- but now you can read it online here.

Dead Island is out on September 6.
