Dead Space Animated Feature and Graphic Novel coming


"Dead Space Aftermath" and "Dead Space Salvage" populate the fiction with new characters, new secrets

Today Visceral Games will announce two all-new products in the Dead Space franchise; Dead Space Aftermath and Dead Space Salvage. These two brand extensions will be revealed during a ComicCon panel discussion entitled, 'Building a Horror Entertainment Franchise: Dead Space 2' featuring Dead Space Producer Rich Briggs, Dead Space Salvage Artist Christopher Shy, Dead Space Martyr Writer Brian Evenson, Dead Space Aftermath Actor Christopher Judge and Dead Space 2 Actor Gunner Wright. Aftermath and Salvage will be available in winter 2010, as part of the pre-launch campaign for Dead Space 2.

“It is tremendously inspiring to see Dead Space continually expand to more media. It has always been our goal to experience the universe through multiple lenses and our vision is being realized. The Dead Space world is living, breathing, and terrifying. We couldn’t be more excited about these new offerings,” said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of the Dead Space franchise.

The animated feature, Dead Space Aftermath centers on the Aegis VII disaster and explores how the Government sends an unwitting crew of people to get exposed to Marker shards. The Government is secretly trying to produce a viable “Marker blueprint” carrier, no matter the costs. Dead Space Aftermath is being developed by Starz/Film Roman and will be available in January 2011.

The graphic novel Dead Space Salvage tells the story of the Magpies, who discover an abandoned mining ship, the USG Ishimura. Their once-fortunate luck turns into a catastrophe as they realize they’re in the middle of a living nightmare. Not only is the Government racing to claim the Ishimura, but the necromorphs are also reanimating across the ship. Dead Space Salvage will feature the unique visual style of fantasy and sci-fi artist, Christopher Shy. Dead Space Salvage is being published by IDW and will be available in December 2010.

Dead Space 2 will be available on January 25th 2011 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC.
