Kurzbeschreibung

Nineteen years ago, a parasitic fungal outbreak killed the majority of the world's population, forcing survivors into a handful of quarantine zones. Thirteen-year-old Ellie has grown up in this violent, postpandemic world, and her disrespect for the military authority running her boarding school earns her new enemies, a new friend in fellow rebel Riley, and her first trip into the outside world. * The official lead-in to the game from Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl) and Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Spannung baut sich hier nicht auf 17. März 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe zuvor den "The Last of Us"-DLC "Left Behind" gespielt, daher kamen mir einige Locations im Comic bereits vertraut vor. Viele neue Informationen bietet die doch recht kurze Story leider nicht. Genauso wenig baut sich Spannung auf, die z.B. mit der eines "The Walking Dead"-Comics oder mit der des "The Last of Us"-Spiels zu vergleichen ist.

Der Zeichenstil ist eine Mischung aus den legendären "Scott Pilgrim"-Comics und der "Sweet Tooth"-Serie - ein wenig zu große Augen und stellenweise grobe Zeichnungen. Das passt jedoch erstaunlich gut zum Setting und den Charakteren. Die Qualität der matt gedruckten Seiten ist im Übrigen recht gut.

Fazit:
Obwohl oder vielleicht gerade weil ich ein großer Fan des PS3-Spiels bin, war dieser Comic nichts besonderes für mich. Vermisst habe ich vor allem die atemberaubende Atmosphäre und die Dynamik des eigentlich großartigen Settings.
Kann man lesen, muss man aber nicht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comic für Liebhaber. 26. April 2014
Von Peter G.
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Comic ist nur für Leute, die ihrem "The Last of Us" - Erlebnis noch eine Vorgeschichte geben wollen. Für mich war dieses Comic ein MUSS, nachdem das PlayStation Exclusive ganz sicher das Beste Game der letzten Jahrzehnte ist. Egal ob durch das DLC "Left Behind" oder eben durch dieses Comic, die ganze Tragweite und Geschicht von Elli lässt ich so die ein Puzzel zusammensetzen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One Hell of a Comic 31. Oktober 2013
Von Travis Starnes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
To be honest, I doubt anyone would have the same experience reading this comic that I did; very few people are going to walk into a book store and randomly pick up the first trade that they come across, but that is effectively how this works for me. Sure, if the cover says `Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' then I have a fairly good grasp on what the comic is about. For this one, and quite a few others, half the fun has been finding out what the story was about without any expectations telling me I was going to love or hate it. From the moment I started reading I was fascinated by where this was going with the young girl looking out of the coach window, all the military people milling about and the guy being frisked against the wall.

I have a young daughter, quite a lot younger than the girl shown in this comic, but it has left me open to feeling over protective towards young female protagonists and there are many times throughout this comic that I just want to pick her up and give her a hug. Watching her reaching out to the soldier who I guess rescued her and being gently turned down is heart breaking. The art does clever things with the perspective at times as Ellie is shown being towered over by adults and on a par with younger people, more so than would actually be indicated by her actual height. I do not even know if this was a conscious decision by the artist, but it makes me feel so much more protective towards her at the beginning of the comic, but by the time she takes control at the end, there is never this shot showing how small she is again.

Ellie has been sent to a military school in one of the safe districts, an area where the infection has not spread and they can protect those inside from the parasitic fungal zombies outside. Actually you never seem to find out what has infected the people from reading the comic, that info came from the back cover, and honestly, you do not need to know it. Not knowing makes it feel more creepy and it makes that initial moment where you finally meet one of them, even more unnerving.
Ellie does not fit in at any of the schools she has been to, forever getting into fights, and the moment she steps foot in this school she finds another one. To be fair, this one is definitely not her fault, but it does not stop the principal from dragging her into his office after another girl, Riley, has saved her from a beating. Riley is a definite wild child, waiting to escape from the rigid structure of the military school and into the arms of the `Firefiles' who are an underground group of people fighting against the military and the zombie hoards. It is obvious where this is leading and Ellie and Riley both escape over the fence off in search of rebels and a free life. But what they find is death, murder, violence and the sense that even when you think it is as bad as it can get, it can get worse.

It is strange because in every way, I should hate the art in this comic. Everything I have ever said about neatness of lines, clarity, and repetition of shape when it comes to characters goes straight out. This is not your usual comic art and nor should it be. The art is `cute,' grainy, dirty and I love every frame of it. It is punctuated with fully painted pages between the chapters and this break of style, even for a single page at a time, is beautifully done; well except chapter three, which is horribly, but still wonderful. What you are most drawn to are her eyes; throughout the entire story you could hide everything apart from them and you would get every emotion and thought that you need to. The middle panel on the second page sums up how well this comic portrays emotions without a single word and it is a haunting picture that makes me want to go and hug my daughter as a surrogate for Ellie.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well Written 29. Oktober 2013
Von Talvi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Last of Us: American Dreams is a prequel graphic novel to the eponymous game. In it, young Ellie is sent to a military school/orphanage and meets up with a young rebel Riley. Riley has dreams of joining the Firefly resistance and convinces Ellie to join her in sneaking into the city to find the Fireflies. They meet up with the group after some misadventures and Ellie discovers that the group's leader, Marlene, knows quite a bit about her. After the brutal violence she witnesses by the Fireflies, Riley decides that joining the group might not be in her best interest after all.

The story flows smoothly but it is very short at 100 or so pages. Really, only enough room to bring in key players from the game and tell a quick story. I've never played the game so I can't say if there are any interesting tie-ins to the game other than the appearance of Marlene.

The artwork is lovely though the characters do skew young looking - in a very Scott Pilgrim kind of way. It makes Ellie look even more vulnerable than in the game but I feel the artist did a good job. Certainly, Ellie has a lot of personality to spare and it shows in the artwork and plotting.

Is this a book for fans of the game? Absolutely. I don't think this is about filling in pieces so much as giving fans a bit more story. As for those who haven't played the game, I think it will be a bit dissatisfying since it is a quick story without preamble or set up (what is the resistance and why are they resisting? Why is Ellie alone? etc. etc.). But it may make those who haven't played the game want to try it.

In all, a decent graphic novel but one definitely for the fans.

Received as an ARC from the publisher.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A well made but somewhat dull prelude 20. Februar 2014
Von Endyo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The game The Last of Us is this epic story of a journey through a post-apocalyptic world. There's a great deal of character building and American Dreams looks to build upon that. The comic itself is well drawn and does a great job capturing the bleakness of the game, but the story itself doesn't give you a great deal. In fact, I feel as though the entire point of the comic could have been expressed in a one page short story. It does give a little bit of background to the Left Behind DLC, but nothing so significant or ground breaking that you couldn't derive it from the DLC alone. In fact, I think I'd venture so far as to say Left Behind makes American Dreams entirely unnecessary as every notable point in it is covered in the game and done so in a more engaging and intimate way.

However, taken on its own, the artwork and story of the comic make it worth reading if you think the price is fair.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good companion to the game 12. Dezember 2013

This was a good comic and if you have played the game, I think it's worth a read. My only gripe is I wish it was a little longer.
1.0 von 5 Sternen Pointless Story, Ugly Artwork 6. Dezember 2014
Von Cob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is dreadful. As a huge fan of "The Last of Us", I was fairly excited to learn more about the world in which it takes place. However, this book fails to either capture the spirit of the game, or to tell an interesting story in its own right.

It stands to reason that a good adaptation would either evoke the spirit of its source material in a new medium, or attempt to stay true to the source material while exploring how it may be interpreted as another genre. "American Dreams" fails to do either. In essence, the plot is about Ellie and her friend Riley meeting each other, and its purpose in the overall franchise is to provide backstory. However, very little backstory is actually given, and what is shown is underwhelming. Overall, the book won't enhance the reader's understanding of the game (unlike "BioShock: Ratpure", which does a marvelous job of supporting its game), and it lacks entertainment value on its own. It's BORING.

There's also the matter of the artwork. One would expect an adaptation to try and preserve some of the aesthetics of the original, which in the case of "The Last of Us", that would mean realistic drawings with bright color and lush detail. Instead, "American Dreams" (what does the title even mean?) has a sort of schoolchild-like style, and it comes across as very lazy. Yet, that is just to be expected, since the story seems lazily-written.

I really can't recommend this book, regardless of if you are a fan.
