Shank Comic Bridges the Story Between Both Games

on February 15, 2012 7:30 PM

Don’t you just hate it when developers go for the obvious cash-grab and release books, comics and the like alongside their games? Well, Klei Entertainment is doing something completely different: The Shank comic is now available for download, but you won’t have to pay a single cent for it. That’s right, it’s totally free.

The comic bridges the gap between the first two games and you can either download it from Comixology onto your Android, Kindle or iOS device or directly onto your desktop. Illustrated by Jeff Agala and Vangelis Christou, the 12-page book is just as bloody and gritty as you’d expect it to be. But it’s also as colorful and vibrant as you could possibly hope. Don’t you just love freebies?
