"trusted mechanic" Chumbucket.
The comic is from writer Tom Taylor and artist Jason Shawn Alexander. Mad Max was rumoured to be in the works at Avalanche for years but only recently was confirmed.
Avalanche has a solid history in the open world business with solid praise for Just Cause 2, which even spawned a significant multiplayer mod project by fans.
"Chumbucket acts as the character's trusted mechanic in Mad Max and their backstory comes alive in a new DC Entertainment motion comic from writer Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us, Earth 2) and artist Jason Shawn Alexander (Legends of the Dark Knight)," blurbs Warner Bros.
Mad Max releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4 in 2014.
