from Bethesda Softworks this all-new prequel invites readers to experience the
deranged world created by Shinji Mikami.

first issue. The time of the year both
this companion and the game are coming out is obviously appropriately placed as

this first issue and sitting down for a good, scary read. That is of course, if you’re not already too ruined
from the game.
