Sometime you just can't play video games all the time. So instead it is good to take time and read stories based or supplementing video games. Last weekend I ordered a couple of books online, graphic novels to be more specific. Today I received them,here is what I got:
Silent Hill Omnibus: This book is a collection of several comic book stories set in the Silent Hill universe to the tune of 400 pages. This collection includes Silent Hill: Dying Inside, Silent Hill: Three Bloody Tales, and Silent Hill: Dead/Alive, all written by novelist Scott Ciencin and featuring art by Ben Templesmith. Since they announced Silent Hill: Shattered Memories I have been really inspired to complete my Silent Hill game collection and have since brought Silent Hill and Silent Hill 3 back into my collection joining SH2 and 4. When I saw this in the book store recently I thought it would be a good way to build up my Silent Hill passion. I will let you know if it any good.
Dead Space: Another game I have been waiting to play for some time. And since I have heard nothing but great things about I wanted to jump into the Dead Space universe with both feet. So in the last few months I have purchased the movie, the game, and finally the graphic novel. Apparently the game designers have made the story a trilogy with each medium supplying a chapter. I plan to put them all together and see if they fit. Again I will let you know how this trilogy turns out.
