Rejoice Overwatch fans for the fastest character from Team Overwatch leads her own 5 part series! New from Dark Horse Comics, Tracer stars in her own title available now digitally at digital.darkhorse.com. Titled Overwatch: Tracer – London Calling, this series follows Tracer and her need to find her place post Petras Act. The press release from Dark Horse reads as such:
Tracer’s time as an Overwatch agent is up. Five years after the ratification of the Petras Act, she now tends to small-scale crimes as a part-time hero. But when a punk-rock omnic named Iggy shows Tracer the dire living conditions that have been forced upon London’s omnics, Tracer becomes determined to help in any way possible—even if it puts her back in the crosshairs.
Acclaimed Eisner and Harvey award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer, X-23) and kinetic artist Babs Tarr (Batgirl, Motor Crush) are joined by exquisite colorist Rachel Cohen (Snotgirl) and letterer extraordinaire Deron Bennett (Tale of Sand). Working in close collaboration, Blizzard Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics present Overwatch fans with an exciting new addition to Overwatch’s expanding story in the limited series Overwatch: Tracer – London Calling. Set several years after Overwatch and its agents are declared “illegal,” this essential tie-in comic series will forever alter Overwatch history!Dark Horse Comics
Tracer: New Looks
The artwork looks great, and it gives a light hearted feel to the title. Then again what else can one expect from Tracer. The first issue does a great job creating a sympathetic Omnic and draws us into their reality. How she handles the adversities ahead should make for a great story, but it also does a fantastic job giving us her trademark moves and signature lines from the game.
Speaking of game, get ready because on Sept 15th Comic Tracer comes to the game!
