King Gaming Review
After a year of delays, CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 finally launches tomorrow. In the meantime, Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt RED are exploring a bit of the world in between that release date and the previous one by releasing an all-new comic called Where's Johnny? The new comic by Cullen Bunn and Miguel Valderrama is set to explore the fate of iconic character played by Keanu Reeves after the events of the game's main campaign. Fortunately if you don't want to be spoiled for anything that happens in this dark future then you should be okay as it appears that Reeves' character won't be going anywhere!
After a year of delays, CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 finally launches tomorrow
After a year of delays, CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 finally launches tomorrow. The game has been in development for over five years and is expected to be one of the biggest games of the year.
Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020 but with some alterations to make it more suitable for a video game setting. The game's story centers around V, an urban mercenary who must fight against corrupt corporations while trying to survive in Night City—a fictional city in California that has become overrun by corporations after World War III broke out. Players will have plenty of choice when it comes to building their character as they can customize their appearance and abilities as well as choosing their gender and class type (e.g., Netrunner).
The focus seems to be on narrative with lots of choices affecting how events unfold throughout the story such as who you choose to side with at key points in the narrative or whether or not you decide to take part in certain missions or side quests at all!

While we wait for the release of Cyberpunk 2077, you can get your fix with the comic prequel to the game. The digital version of this comic will be available for free on April 16th, but if you’d prefer to hold it in your hands, a hardcover edition will be available later this year.
In addition to never-before-seen art from Miguel Valderrama, who illustrated the graphic novel “The Witcher: Fox Children” as well as several other comic book series, this special edition contains an exclusive cover by Mike S. Miller (Justice League: Gods & Monsters).
and they're not going light on the spoilers.
If you're looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077, the official prequel comic is a great way to get more of what you love. This six-issue miniseries is set in the same world as the game, but it's not going light on spoilers. If you haven't finished Cyberpunk 2077 yet, there will be some major story elements revealed here—and they're worth waiting until after your first playthrough of the game to read up on.
This isn't just a tie-in comic; Johnny Silverhand: A Touch Of Death is an origin story for one of Cyberpunk 2020's most iconic characters that adds context and backstory for why he became Johnny Silverhand in the first place (the protagonist from CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG). The comic takes place after the end of CYBERPUNK 2077 and follows his journey as he finds out about his father's fate (spoilers!). It also includes art by Miguel Valderrama whose work can be seen on Marvel Comics' Spider-Man Miles Morales series among others!
The new comic by Cullen Bunn and Miguel Valderrama is called Where's Johnny
The new comic by Cullen Bunn and Miguel Valderrama is called Where's Johnny. It will be published by Dark Horse Comics.
Bunn is a prolific writer of comics, including The Sixth Gun, Harrow County and Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe Again. He also writes for television shows like Netflix's Daredevil and NBC's Sleepy Hollow as well as the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies mode.
Valderrama has drawn an array of titles for Marvel Comics and DC Comics, including Batman/The Shadow, Hellboy & The BPRD 1953: Beyond the Fences and Hellboy & The BPRD 1953 Special #1-2—and even some Star Wars comics!
because it explores the fate of the iconic character played by Keanu Reeves after the events of the game's main campaign.
This story is actually a prequel to the film, and it's set in the same world as Cyberpunk 2077. You'll play as Johnny Silverhand, who was cut from the movie but is a key character in CD Projekt Red's game. In fact, he's one of its main protagonists! The story takes place before the events of Cyberpunk 2077's main campaign and explores how Johnny came to be cyborg-like himself after an encounter with artificial intelligence that contains encoded memories of his past self (Keanu Reeves).
Fortunately, if you don't want to be spoiled for anything that happens in the game, after all those delays
Fortunately, if you don't want to be spoiled for anything that happens in the game, after all those delays, you can still enjoy the comic. It's not a prequel or a sequel either—it's just a standalone story set in the same world as Cyberpunk 2077. A few characters make cameos in the background here and there (but they don't have any dialogue), but otherwise it's its own thing.
You'll find many things familiar about this world: cybernetic implants and weapons; corporations run amok; hackers who hack into everything—all that good stuff is present here. The artists have done an excellent job making sure that each page looks like it could easily pass for concept art from Cyberpunk 2077 itself
you should be okay
The comics are a prequel to the events of Cyberpunk 2077, but they're not a spoiler in any way. While they focus on Johnny Silverhand's story, the main campaign of the game is not spoiled. They focus on events that take place after the game's ending, and they do so in a way that gives you an idea of what happened while still maintaining mystery.
The comics are also not meant to be read before playing Cyberpunk 2077—they’re meant to give context for those who have already played through it or watched someone else play through it with them. The comics don’t spoil anything about your gameplay experience; instead, they give you some insight into how Johnny came to be who he is at that point in time (and why he looks different than he does when we first meet him).
it appears that Reeves' character won't be going anywhere.
It's hard not to love Johnny Silverhand. Even if he can be a bit of a dick at times, his charm and swagger make him one of the most memorable characters in the Cyberpunk franchise. While we were sad to see him go in 2077, it appears that Reeves' character won't be going anywhere any time soon. He's back for the sequel and will play an important role in this new story.
The all-new Cyberpunk 2077 comic will feature exclusive never-before-seen art from Miguel Valderrama, an eight-page mini-comic, and additional artwork from artists around the world inspired by this dark future!
Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person shooter video game developed by CD Projekt RED and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is based on the tabletop role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020 by R. Talsorian Games, which was in turn based on the cyberpunk genre of science fiction. The game is set in a dystopian metropolis called Night City, located in Northern California somewhere between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The metropolis features inhabitants from various classes and cultures, each with their own outlooks on life.
For those of you who are looking forward to the release of Cyberpunk 2077, this is a good way to get your fix while you wait. If you're more interested in the game's lore and backstory than its gameplay, then I would recommend reading this comic over playing it again.
