News tratta da "Mashable"
If sneak peeks and glowing reviews haven't already gotten you pumped for the upcoming two-night premiere of Better Call Saul, this certainly will do the trick.
Mashable can exclusively report that AMC has launched a Better Call Saul digital comic book that sketches out the history of Saul and Mike, spinning off of a moment originally seen on Breaking Bad in the episode that introduced Saul.
Better Call Saul," Mac McKean, senior vice president of digital media and content for AMC, said.
The comic, which traces Mike's investigation into a mysterious man (a.k.a. Walter), is available now.
For this particular project, AMC — as it did with the Breaking Bad comic released ahead of that show's final season premiere and the interactive comics — collaborated with the show's writers, who found a supplemental story that would both entertain existing fans of the universe and act as a scene setter for those who haven't watched Breaking Bad.
For those who haven't watched the show, the comic has an episode guide of sorts to help fans understand references. "Not that this is something you must read to get Better Call Saul, but having those extra layers out there seems really appropriate for this particular type of storytelling and this type of show," McKean said. "And we've seen the evidence in terms of usage [of the comics in the past] that there's a sizable chunk of people who want to read about this world in this form."
Fans of the series can also sign up for "Letters from Saul" starting on Wednesday, yet another another online initiative that will deliver weekly letters to viewers' inboxes — ones that Saul has written to other fictional members in the show's universe.
The two-night Better Call Saul premieres Feb. 8 and Feb. 9 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
