Trivia Edit

  • On the backside of each book, the Dark Horse Comics logo can be seen at the bottom next to the barcode.
  • Throughout the game, when Joel finds a comic, he tells Ellie and she claims she would read it later. However, she is never shown doing this. It's possible Ellie reads them between seasons.
  • The character for the comics resembles that of the InFAMOUS DC Comics written by William Harms. While the art design resembles that of the Mass Effect franchise created by Bioware.
  • The artwork for the comics were done by Mike Oeming.
  • During Ellie and Joel's journey in the game, you can see some advertisements for Savage Starlight: the Movie.
  • The name of the ship, the Kobyashi, is likely a reference to the Kobayashi Maru test from Star Trek.
  • Naughty Dog has set up a website for Savage Starlight. It is currently unknown what it is to be used for.
  • A Savage Starlight poster can be found in Cassie Drake's bedroom during the epilogue of Uncharted 4.

Bugs and Glitches Edit

  • The comic found inside the ranch house when finding Ellie may sometimes not spawn.
  • The comic found inside the bathroom at the bus depot may sometimes not spawn.
  • The comic's found in the Lakeside Resort chapter may sometimes not spawn.
  • Note that in some cases, when you die or quit the game, a previously found comic may need to be retrieved again depending on where your last auto-save occurred. Always double-check to ensure that any comics you found previously don't need to be picked up again.
