Hollywood Daze: The Last of Us (REVISTED AGAIN!)

.

Earlier today HBO announced that they would be adapting a series based on the very popular Last of Us video game. We’ve discussed this video game numerous times on this website, just two weeks Nico wrote a video game segment in his Week in Review article where he spoke about this and many other video game comic book series, We also wrote a detailed article about the comic books back in September when preorders opened for the NEW Last of Us video game.

The Last of Us released in 2013 was developed by Naughty Dog Games and was one of the most popular games released for the Play Station 3 console. The Last of Us is a post apocalyptic third person shooter with a very detailed campaign story mode. Dark Horse Comics produced a prequel comic book series for this game that was published two months before the release of the game titled Last of Us American Dreams. This book was very underordered because retails couldn’t anticipate the demand for this franchise resulting in the first issue having three printings – all of which have historically sold well on the secondary market.

When this game was released there were two premium edition collectors packages which included very rare variant editions of the first issue of this comic book. The Survival Edition was only available in North America and came with a special edition comic book while the Joel Edition was only available in Europe and came with the same comic book published in the size of an Archie digest – labeled a “mini comic” in all of the promotional materials. Both of these books feature the same content however the European version is a much harder book to find.

After this four issue mini series was released Dark Horse released a Hardcover collection of the series. This Hard Cover sells for $80 to $100 on various online marketplaces.

Issue of The Last of Us American Dreams are currently on the rise so now is a great time to try to secure copies. I am not suggesting buying marked up prices off ebay but I am saying that you should be looking for these books in the wild. The Last of Us is a very big game franchise and The Last of Us 2 is already shaping up to be one of the biggest games to be released in 2020 so unlike the numerous of things that are optioned every week I have no doubt this series will end up being developed.
