You’ve finished the game, unlocked the trophies, conquered the online servers and collected all those golden guns, but have you read the Max Payne 3 comic book?
Rockstar, in conjunction with Marvel, have just announced the release of the second issue of a three part story which joins the dots between previous Max Payne outings and his third Rio-bound adventure.
First issue After the Fall ‘sheds new light on Max’s life through key events from his troubled upbringing,’ with the second issue Hoboken Blues furthering his shattered background. The series is set to culminate with its next issue, while it’s worth noting that each book is not only free but co-written by Dan Houser who also authored the game’s script.
See the official Max Payne 3 website for download links.
