Is the black women Riley from the comic?

16 replies 250 views Edited Apr 18, 2013
I just noticed. That the black women from the trailer looks a lot like Riley from the comic. Is this a known fact? Am I late? (I can't find a picture of her)

I've yet to read the comics. Can I get them from Chapters? I'm in Canada, too, so I dunno if that helps or not. Also, I don't really want to get them yet, as I get American Dreams comic 1 with variant cover with my game. I kind of want to wait to play the game, then read all the comics as sort of a prelude to what happens. Also, if anyone ends up dying, it'll hurt more if I like them even more than I already do.

No, it's not. The comic is set just a year before the game. You think Riley would grow up that fast?! We don't know much about the black lady, except that she's played by Merle Dandrige (Alyx Vance from Half-life)

I actually don't know where to get it. I read the first issue off of a YouTube video.

Well the art style kind of makes it hard to tell her age. To me she doesn't look that young

Thanks. I'll check around my local comic shops, they might have it. Would you say it's worth it to get them and read them first, or wait like I said?

I think you should read it first. So you can kind of get to know ellie and the world of the last of us. I mean it is a prequel so why not read it first.

Plus from what I hear it's actually a good comic. Like it can stand on its own. Even for people who don't know about the last of us

^ Sick. I may have to go out later and see if I can pick them up. I hope we get some figures, statues, and a ton of various merchandise for this game. I'm gonna have to find another spot for my Batman and The Hobbit collections. The Last of Us takes the first spot without a doubt.

She looked at the very most 3 years older than Ellie. And the lady in the trailer looks to be around Tess and Joel's age. That's quite a bit of aging in one year.

^My point exactly! Not sure how you could mistake a teenager for a middle-aged lady!
