If you're interested in delving into the lore behind Dungeon Siege 3 before the RPG drops June 21, you might want to flip through the virtual pages of Dark Horse's comic book tie-in. The first, ten-page issue of the illustrated prequel is now available on Dark Horse's official site.
To read the comic, you'll have to register for a Dark Horse Digital account -- but it's still a totally free process. Which is more than we can say for crossing the threshold of an actual comic book store. Good luck leaving one of those places without dropping a few Hamiltons on the latest Archie collection.
