Remember when I asked vice president of Radical Entertainment Dave Fracchia if any comics inspired the Prototype series? This time it’s the other way around.

Activision announced today that Radical Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics teamed up for the release of a new comic series that will bridge the gap between Prototype and Prototype 2.

The comic series will be split in three chapters: the first chapter “The Anchor“, illustrated by Paco Diaz, continues the story of Alex Mercer, the protagonist from the first game. The second chapter, “The Survivors“, illustrated by Chris Staggs, follows a small group of residents of New York trying to escape the city after the outbreak of the Blacklight virus.  The third chapter, illustrated by Victor Drujiniu, is “The Labyrinth” and will give us deeper insight into the backstory of Prototype 2‘s new protagonist, James Heller.

You can look below for two pages of the upcoming comic series, that will be released every other week beginning on February the 15th on the Dark Horse digital store:

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
