Rage comic books announced

Dark Horse to doodle FPS tie-in.

Forthcoming mutant shooter Rage is to get a three-issue comic book series, publisher Bethesda Softworks has announced.

The comics, the first of which launches on 22nd June, take place shortly before the events of the game.

Apparently the Earth has been devastated by an asteroid collision, with a few survivors holing up in life-sustaining Arks beneath the surface. They emerge to find a mutant-ravaged wasteland ruled by a brutal military dictatorship. A scientist sets out in search of answers and discovers that, as is so often the case with these sorts of scenarios, all is not quite as it seems.

The Dark Horse-published books are written by Rex Mundi creator Arvid Nelsion and crayoned by DMZ man Andrea Mutti (DMZ). Developer id Software's creative director Tim Willits has also chipped in.

The game upon which it is based is due to launch for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 16th September.
