(Capcom's primary storyline)
News Comet was a newspaper in Raccoon City. Alyssa Ashcroft published at least one story for this newspaper. At some point either shortly before or early into the Raccoon City Destruction Incident, a reporter working for the News Comet commissioned January Van Sant to investigate illegal dealings between Umbrella USA and the Raccoon City Police Department.
The original script refers to this newspaper as "News Comet" (ニューズコメット Nyūzu kometto ), though its localization says "Comet News".
