Beware: Cyberpunk Edgerunners spoilers here!
On September 23, Twitter user Liping54009663 uploaded an original Edgerunners comic. The 14-panel short shows a version of Rebecca who survived Adam Smasher’s brutal attack in the final episode of Cyberpunk Edgerunners and made it out alive with Falco as her new traveling companion.

The talented artist not only gives Rebecca a much happier ending, but also creates a beautiful send-off for leading man David Martinez, who arrives on the Moon with Lucy. David, of course, also canonically meets an extremely sad death at the hands of Adam Smasher in the climactic episode of the anime series.
We’re not entirely sure how that happened, but despite her limited screen time, Rebecca has become an absolute sensation among Cyberpunk fans in general since Edgerunners first aired on Netflix last week. It’s a twist of fate for a character who originally came close to being killed off by 2077 developer CD Projekt Red, only to be saved by anime giant Studio Trigger.
Aside from Twitter, this fan-made comic has also caused a storm on the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit. (opens in a new tab). Over 6,000 users on the subreddit have upvoted the comic so far, with many users around the world experiencing leaks from their optical ports as a result of the fantastic creation.
Edgerunners has truly won over both new and old Cyberpunk 2077 players, so much so that over a million players booted up the game each day since the anime and the game’s accompanying Edgerunners-themed update first launched. RPG.
