- The Suburbs: 2
- Tommy's Dam: 2
- The University: 1
- Lakeside Resort: 2
- Bus Depot: 2

Can you read the Savage Starlight comics in The Last of Us Remake?
While you're doing some reading, find all The Last of Us Training Manuals here!
While you can find all fourteen issues of Savage Starlight in The Last of Us Part 1, you can only read the front and back covers of them by examining them in Joel or Ellie's inventory, and there's no way to open them up and read inside. As mentioned, the back cover blurbs do obliquely refer to events in the game or relationships between characters, but that's as close as we get to finding out what the pages of Savage Starlight contain.
And no - despite many thinking that when The Last of Us first came out that the Savage Starlight series was a hint at some future game or project, they've never properly followed it up with anything related, so there's currently no chance to buy, read or play the series in some form.
