Dead Space: Liberation graphic novel is a prequel to Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 is due out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on February 5, 2013, and the game looks to deliver more chilling gameplay to both longtime fans and newcomers alike. To delve even deeper into the lore of Dead Space 3 and its characters, Visceral Games has teamed up with Titan Books to release a graphic novel titled Dead Space: Liberation.

Readers will get a close look at John Carver, the co-op character from Dead Space 3, and get an understanding of who he is and where he comes from. Liberation is penned by Ian Edington, and Christopher Shy has provided art for the graphic novel.

Liberation is due out on February 12, 2013. In addition to the graphic novel, The Art of Dead Space will also see a release down the road and will feature 300 pieces of artwork from Dead Space 3.

If you're at New York Comic Con this weekend, you can stop by Titan Books Booth #832 and receive Dead Space 3 art cards and posters signed by Liberation artist Christopher Shy.
