The first Dead Space graphic novel is a collection of Dead Space comic issues #1-6. It is a prequel to the original Dead Space video game that was released in 2008.

The story flows along at a good pace, and the artwork by Ben Templesmith is complimentary to the story but easy to follow (unlike the art for the second graphic novel, Dead Space: Salvage - see my review). The plot wraps things up well for this segment of the Dead Space story, and sets up the 1st game well. Still, if thing is your only exposure to the Dead Space universe, you might be better off choosing a graphic novel not tied to other media.

Also, an animated comic of this graphic novel is available on Xbox Live Arcade. It features voice acting and uses the same script and visuals as this book. Which one is better is up to individual preference, but don't make the mistake of buying both thinking that they're different.
