Here's our first proper look at the Life is Strange comic sequel

How novel.

Life is Strange's official graphic novel follow-up launches next week, and we can now take a peek at how it looks.

Set after the events of Life is Strange's finale, the comic follows the Bay timeline and picks up Max and Chloe's story one year later.

I just finished reading its first issue and it's a great opener - the game's time-travelling weirdness is still causing issues, there are clues to the lingering fates of characters from the Bay ending of the game, and really it's just nice to see Max and Chloe together again - even if just on page.

Rather than ever branding this the "canon" ending of the game, the comic presents this version of what happens next as simply one option in a multiverse of possible futures. (But we all know this ending was best.)
