Bethesda Softworks and Dark Horse Comics Announce RAGE Comic Book Series

Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media
company, and Dark Horse Comics today announced a three-issue comic book
series based on id® Software’s upcoming RAGE® video game. This original
miniseries is being written by Arvid Nelsion, the acclaimed creator of
Rex Mundi, and penciled by Andrea Mutti (DMZ). The cover art is being
created by Glenn Fabry, best known for his work on Hellblazer and
Preacher. Set prior to the events in the game, the comics are an
extension of the RAGE universe and will provide numerous insights into
the game’s storyline. The first of the three comics will be available in
North America and the UK on June 22, 2011.

This comic series, developed with the direct participation of RAGE’s
creative director, Tim Willits, presents a new twist on the
post-apocalyptic near future as one woman discovers that the survival of
humankind doesn’t necessarily mean the survival of humanity. The Earth
has been devastated by a collision with an asteroid, with a tiny
fraction of the population surviving in life-sustaining Arks buried deep
below its surface. Those who survive emerge to find a wasteland
controlled by a global military dictatorship called the Authority. But a
rescued scientist learns that the Authority has lied to her and the
other survivors about how this new world came to be.

RAGE is the latest game from id Software, the acclaimed designers of
the Wolfenstein®, DOOM®, and QUAKE® series. RAGE features intense
first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive
world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary
id Tech® 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future, you emerge to
discover humanity working to rebuild itself against forces such as
bandit gangs, mutants, and more.

Eagerly awaited by the gaming community, RAGE is already being touted
as one of the industry’s most innovative first-person shooters, winning
numerous awards at E3 2010, including ‘Best Overall Game of Show’ from
IGN and three ‘Best of E3’ Game Critics Awards including ‘Best Console
Game’. RAGE is slated for release in North America on September 13th and
throughout Europe on September 16th and will be available for the Xbox
360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3
computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.
