The Life is Strange game franchise was developed by Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix, with three games released in the past five years. The adventure game revolves around Max Caufield, a photographer who can rewind time to change the outcomes of her actions. Life is Strange gameplay involves solving puzzles by using Max's time-traveling ability.

Like a comic book, the first Life is Strange game was released serially in five "episodes" throughout 2015. A sequel titled Life is Strange: Before the Storm was released in 2017, with a sequel titled Life is Strange 2 following in 2018.

"The adventures of Max, Chloe, and Rachel, from the hit game Life is Strange, continue," reads Titan's description of Life is Strange: Partner's in Time #1. "Time-rewinding photographer Max has spent years trapped in an alternate reality. Now, with the universe against her, she must embark on a coast-to-coast road trip of multiple lifetimes!"

This would be a continuation of Titan's long-running Life if Strange series of comic books, with three collections released thus far: Dust (opens in new tab), Waves (opens in new tab), and Strings (opens in new tab). The UK publisher has done numerous video game-based comic book series in the past including spin-offs of Tomb Raider, Assassin's Creed, and World of Warcraft.

Life is Strange: Partner's in Time #1 goes on sale October 14. Here's a look at primary cover, as well as several variants:
