This is an outstanding book filled with Dead Space art work and the back story or prequel to the game Dead Space on ps3 and xbox 360.
The artwork is amazing, such detail and care have gone into every aspect of it. Attention to detail is also fa nominal as it does a good job explaining the back story while also keeping true to the game.
Would recommend this book to any Dead Space fans out there.

I missed this when it was first published, and when I came to try to buy it later it was as rare as a truthful politician, and as expensive as a corrupt one.
Thankfully, it has now been reprinted by Titan, so I snapped it up.
I love all things Dead Space pretty much, having played all the games, watched the movies and even read some of the offerings. Couple that with the artwork of Ben Templesmith, of 30 Days of Night fame, and you have something special.
Templesmith was born to work on the horror of Dead Space and it's beautifully, chaotically rendered. Anthony Johnston's story is excellent and really builds in suspense and claustrophobia, as things go from bad to worse, and then some!
All, in all, first rate graphic novel, based on a top franchise. Brilliant.
