The third and final story will be released on the 15th March and is called "The Labyrinth." It will provide fans a deeper look into the backstory of Sgt. James Heller, the protagonist of Prototype 2.
Each of the comics are illustrated by some of Dark Horse's most talented artists, including Paco Díaz, Chris Staggs, and Victor Drujiniu.
