The third issue of American Dreams was an EXTREMELY fast read. It almost has as much intensity as The Last of Us during one of its crazy gun battles…almost. Either way, I zipped through it really fast. These comics have turned out to be a great prequel to the game, and now that I have played it, I appreciate them even more. Also, if you have played it, or plan to, they actually do have some throwbacks to these comics!
In this issue, Ellie and Riley have close call after close call. It’s intense, and it doesn’t stop. They make a great team, and I really wish that we could have seen Riley in the game. There are encounters with the military, fireflies, and the infected. It ends very abruptly, and in that surprise ending, I have NO idea what is going on. The issue just leaves you hanging until the next. I guess we will just have to wait and see.
