For all of you Prototype fans, there is a new digital comic coming out that is based on the games. Published by Dark Horse Comics and with teh help from Prototype developers Radical Entertainment, the Prototype world will have some gapes filled with three comics which will bridge the two games, offering a continuation of Alex Mercer after the events of the first game as well as some back story for Prototype 2 protagonist Sgt. James Heller.

The first comic will be entitled “The Anchor,” illustrated by Paco Díaz. This will explore the events after the conclusion of the first game and will be focused on Prototype protagonist Alex Mercer. The second comic will be entitled “The Survivors,” illustrated by Chris Staggs. In this comic, readers will follow the footsteps of a group of New Yorkers trying to escape the city after the Blacklight Virus outbreak. The third and final comic will be entitled “The Labyrinth,” illustrated by Victor Drujiniu. The comic will focus on the back story of Sgt. James Heller, protagonist of Prototype 2.

These three digital comics will be available every other week beginning February 15, 2012 at Digital.Darkhorse.com. For a sneak peek, just scroll down and see two illustrations, both from “The Anchor” and “The Labyrinth.” Prototype 2 will be available in April 2012 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
