This Max Payne 3 comic is impossible to read without hearing Max Payne's voice inside your head

The combined creative might of Rockstar and Marvel recently released the first in a three part Max Payne 3 Comic Book series. It's co-written by Sam Lake from original Max Payne developer Remedy and Rockstar's veteran script man Dan Houser. It explores some of the bleak back-story - including a pretty miserable childhood - that shapes Max Payne's character. Anyone suffering itchy trigger-fingers ahead of next week's return to gaming of the hard-drinking and perennially shit-out-of-luck detective in Max Payne 3 should definitely check it out.

What makes the comic really amazing is the way it uses highly advanced audio-to-brain transmission technology to magically beam the satisfyingly manly voice of Max Payne into your head as you read. It really is something. Give it a try. You can read the entire first issue here.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
