Sucker Punch's inFamous for the PlayStation 3 was a comic book superhero origin story without a comic book. Thanks to DC Comics, there is now a comic book series on the way, with Doug Mahnke cover art to boot.

inFamous always wanted to be a comic book. It was evident in the comic book-style cut scenes that told the story of the original game and are being used to similar effect in the upcoming inFamous 2. Cole MacGrath is a comic book hero, and soon he'll have his comic book. Six comic books, to be exact, written by William Harms with interior art by Eric Nguyen, an artist that has worked on various Marvel and DC projects over the years.

The six-issue series will follow Cole's move from Empire City to the Southern town of New Marais, introducing a new threat to all of mankind. It sounds like serious business, and judging from Mahnke's cover art, Cole isn't in a particularly friendly mood.
