Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout #2 - Exclusive Preview of the Spinoff Comic
A downtrodden resident of Night City is preparing for the ultimate heist.
Dark Horse Comics continues to expand on the characters and world of Cyberpunk 2077. The publisher recently debuted their newest spinoff comic, dubbed Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout, and now IGN can debut an exclusive preview of the second chapter.
Check out the slideshow gallery below for a closer look at Blackout #2, from writer Bartosz Sztybor and artist Roberto Ricci:
Blackout follows a beleaguered protagonist named Arturo, who works as a braindance repairman. The wealthy citizens of Night City pay good money for these customized dreams, but when a citywide blackout leaves all braindance machines on the fritz, Arturo finally snaps and hatches a scheme of his own. Can a technician who literally makes dreams come true launch the ultimate heist?
Here's Dark Horse's official summary of Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout #2:
Arturo's heist scheme is set in motion-all he needs is a team-a trusted cyberpunk, the best driver in Night City, and an unlikely ally within one of the city's most corrupt institutions. Choices have consequences, but this time, the choice is his.
Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout #2 is priced at $3.99 and will release in print and digital forms on Wednesday, July 6.
The Cyberpunk franchise continues to expand in other directions in 2022. The anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners hits Netflix in September, and we recently got our first look at the intro sequence. There's even a board game in the works called Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City.
