The Last of Us had comic books scattered throughout the city ruins, while Part II has superhero trading cards. It’s clear that whoever it was living around these parts of Boston and Seattle before the outbreak, they were big old nerds. Though they’re not as small as Abby’s antique coins, these trading cards are still hard to spot with infected biting into your neck, so we’re here to hopefully help out and provide a bit of insight into where to find them. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve made use of the game’s tremendous accessibility settings here and toggled on “enhanced listening mode” which pings items and enemies of interest in the world.
SPOILERS BELOW. DO NOT PROCEED INTO THIS ARTICLE IF YOU HAVEN’T FINISHED THE GAME/DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED.
