Half-Life 2: Episode Three fan-made comic cover by ShotgunDude Half-Life 2: Episode Three fan-made comic cover by ShotgunDude
As usual, it's been a while, since I submitted anything, but after former Half-Life writer, Marc Laidlaw, finally published his execution of the story for Half-Life 2: Episode Three, a decade after the release of the last Half-Life game, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, I had to start making a comic based on it, now that we finally have some form of continuation from the main writer, himself, after a decade. For his release of the story, he basically changed all the characters' names and swapped their genders, possibly to avoid copyright infringement with Valve, but they're all going to be their regular selves in my comic.

I originally drew this cover for a drawn HL2 EP3 comic, but after finding a worthy Gordon Freeman model and doing some tests, I might make it with screenshots in Garry's Mod, instead, but regardless, I'm keeping this cover up. But if I do make this comic with GMod screenshots, I'll also try to replicate my drawn cover in Garry's Mod. To avoid keeping people waiting in a certain part of the comic, I won't submit a page of it, until it's completely finished, unless I have to cancel it for whatever reason. But I will let you all see the cover I drew and colored for it to give you a heads up. Most of the Half-Life 2 covers feature Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance with a background representing a location from the game, so what better scene to have for the cover for Episode Three than Gordon and Alyx in the ice canyon, staring off at the Borealis, since that vessel is basically the main location and plot device in it. Sorry, I didn't know how to draw the Combine technology around the ship, yet.

Here's the story written by Marc Laidlaw: www.marclaidlaw.com/epistle-3/

Update: I actually am going to make this comic in Garry's Mod, and I already remade the cover in GMod. Here's the link: shotgundude.deviantart.com/art…
