Where to Find All Comic Books and Locations in The Last of Us Part 1

The first Comic Book you pick up (not get) during your playthrough will reward you with the “Savage Starlight Fan” achievement. Then, once you’ve found all The Last of Us Part 1 Comic Books, you’ll receive the “Endure and Survive” achievement. The good thing is that, in case you do miss any Comics, you can check the Chapters menu to see which ones you still need to find.

In any case, we’ve listed these TLOU Part 1 collectibles below, noting the chapter and segment where you’ll discover the Comic locations.

Pittsburgh Comic Books

Comic Book #1 Location: Force Carrier — Alone and Forsaken

This Comic Book is automatically obtained after the cutscene at the start of this chapter. This is the same Comic Book that Ellie was reading during the cutscene, so it should be in your inventory. Since this isn’t picked up at all, you won’t receive the “Savage Starlight Fan” achievement just yet.

Comic Book #2 Location: Termination Shock — Alone and Forsaken

After leaving the initial area through the garage, you’ll find yourself on a road that leads to the main section. The collectible is inside the wreckage of a bus.

Comic Book #3 Location: Accretion — Hotel Lobby

Progress further in this part until Ellie saves Joel from the thug. After climbing up the ladder, shimmy across the gap and pick this Comic up from a table.
