As I mentioned earlier in Graphic Content, Wildstorm is releasing a prequel Resident Evil comic to coincide with the release of the video game Resident Evil 5. The comic will help readers catch up to what Chris Redfield has been up to and why he is in Africa in the first place. I’m pretty excited for this and the artwork actually looks pretty well done. More info after the jump…
