Penny Arcade's Prince of Persia comic launches today, a total tease

An online Prince of Persia comic, drawn by the good folks over at Penny Arcade, has gone live today. The Web-based, 32-page comic book will be updated with new pages daily, leading up to the game's December 2 release.
At it stands now, there's not much there but the cover and a single page of story. Quite the tease. It does hint at what's in store, detailing the backstory of the game's princess and sidekick, Elika.
Ubisoft sent along a teaser image from the comic book, depicting a bow-and-arrow wielding Prince (or someone) going head-to-head with a tiger. Check it out in the gallery below. I don't mess with tigers; if it were me, I'd go at it with a sub-machine gun. If only this were a Far Cry 2 comic ...
Also, be sure to read my hands-on impressions of Prince of Persia from this year's Tokyo Game Show.
