    Would be cool to collect the Graphic Novels and these three issues and print them in one big book- I would like to see a Mona Sax comic someday (perhaps set between the first two games)

      R* why do you make so much of your stuff 'limited'?
      I end up spending hundreds of pounds on ebay to buy the cool Rockstar Merchandise that could've otherwise been released at the Warehouse.
      However, don't get me started on the Warehouse, all the items I wan't (Barking Irons Flannel, Bamba Club Lighter etc) are U.S. Store only!? The Warehouse was actually better before because at least us in Europe could buy everything on there!

      I just finished reading Issue 1. I'm sure this has been mentioned, but Det. Winterson was NOT a "good" cop. She was aiding Mr. Lem.

        @Baztian It wasn't so straightforward and black and white. She had a blind kid and Vlad could surely provide for them both.

      thanks for this, the mp3s, & the free guerilla warfare map pack.

        Thanks everyone, we're hoping to have issue #2 ready in the next few weeks, and we'll have some news on a limited print edition somewhere around that time

          @ Hello there, is it possible you may have a copy of Max Payne 3 Issue #2 and #3? I have #1 but am having trouble finding #2 and #3 physically. Can you sell me them? Or is it possible to make another copy of #2 and #3 and I will pay handsomely for the work?

                  I played through the first 2 multiple times and it never gets old. I have both games on the PC so even though the Framerate kind of suffers on the PS2 version which was ported to PSN I'm still having fun with it. I'm hoping they bring Max Payne 2 to PSN. Or better yet maybe they can release an HD version of Both :)

                  I asked R* about that earlier to , that would be awesome cause it was a while sins I played the first and second one and now that the first one is available there is only max Payne 2 left ;)

                    @Covertghst Thanks for suggesting, hope you're enjoying the first game!

                      Max Payne 2 on PSN would be awesome. Rockstar please make this happen.
