The five-part comic has been created thanks to a partnership with Italian art collective Dayjob Studio and introduces some of the new playable characters and factions that you’ll meet in Hotline Miami 2. You’ll also delve into the backstory of Hotline Miami, which should bring you up to speed if you didn’t play the original, or offer additional insight if you did.
The first two issues are available now for free, using a custom comic reader app you can find on the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Steam page (it’s free too!), which plays select tracks from the game’s soundtrack in the background as you flip through the pages. Grab these two today, and the remaining three issues will be added to the application in the leadup to the game’s full release.
