Id co-founder John Carmack had a famously unflattering remark about video games and storytelling. “Story in a video game is like a story in a porn movie,” he said. “It’s expected to be there, but it’s not that important.” In spite of that caveat, if you’d like to explore the story behind id’s upcoming shooter Rage, you can do it through an upcoming comic book series.
Bethesda says the three-issue series is being developed with Rage’s creative director Tim Willits, and is being written by Arvid Nelsion and penciled by Andrea Mutti. Glenn Fabry has created the covers.
The comic focuses on the aftermath of an asteroid’s collision with Earth, and how the survivors are dealing with the aftermath. The first issue hits stores June 22.
