Max Payne getting Marvel comic book

Payne is coming to the pages of Marvel comics; Rockstar has announced that a three-part Max Payne 3 comic book is to be produced by the industry giant.

The series will see both a digital and limited print release. It will be written by Rockstar’s Dan Houser and Remedy’s Sam Lake, covering the events of the first two games and taking a look back at the tormented cop’s earlier years. Would a crossover with The Punisher be too much to ask for? Cover art comes from Greg Horn and pencils/inks are by Fernando Blanco.

Issue one is out in a few weeks. It’ll be absolutely free, so there’s no reason not to take a look, right?

Max Payne 3 hits PS3 and 360 mid-May, and PC late May/early June.
