Spanning multiple timelines, and packed with twists and turns, Max and Chloe’s comic book adventures pick up from one ending of the award-winning original videogame.

Mysteriously gifted with the power to rewind time, photography student Max Caulfield made the fateful decision to save her oldest friend Chloe Price, from a gunshot wound. In doing so, she began to unravel a web of dark secrets and find justice for Rachel Amber, Chloe’s closest confidante, who had been murdered. Max’s abilities, however, brought about a once-in-a-generation storm which threatened to destroy Arcadia Bay, unless she were to rewind time and allow Chloe to die. In one timeline, Max chose to save Chloe once again, and sacrifice Arcadia Bay.
