Online I Am Legend Prequel


Tie-in promo from Vertigo Comics

At the San Diego Comic-Con, attendees received the first chapter in an on-going prequel to the Will Smith-starring I Am Legend which is aptly titled “I Am Legend: Awakening.”

Published by Vertigo Comics, the story swings back before the events of Richard Matheson’s source story…before Robert Neville seemingly became the last man on Earth…before the world’s population was wiped out by a deady virus – leavin’ Will Smith large and in charge. Boo-yah.

Apple is currently hosting the fourth chapter in the series (not sure what happened to parts two and three) called “Sacrificing the Few for the Many.” The piece, which runs a little over three minutes, can be found here.

Keep it here for further updates on the upcoming Warner Bros. film as we approach its December 14th release date.
