Deep Silver today released a six-page digital comic revealing events that lead to the highly anticipated Dead Island, which places players amidst the terrifying zombie outbreak in the tropical holiday island of Banoi.
The comic introduces journalist Roger Howard, who has traveled to Banoi to investigate the illegal exploitation of the island’s resources. During his investigations in the Royal Palms Resort hotel he discovers a terrible surprise that no one could ever expect.
The story was created by Marvel Custom Solutions by the creative team of writer William Dailey, along with artists Jorge Lucas, Juan Santacruz, Diego Olmos, Carlos Rodriguez and Sergio Arino. The comic also features an eye-catching cover by Christian Nauck.
The comic was previously only available as a printed limited edition at the recent San Diego ComiCon last July. The Dead Island comic can now also be read here Dead Island Digital Comic
