Overwatch: First Strike Graphic Novel Pre-Orders Open

Overwatch: First StrikeComing from Dark Horse Comics, ((pre-orders)) for the Overwatch: First Strike graphic novel have opened. The graphic novel by writers Micky Neilson & Chris Metzen, and penciled by Ludo Lullabi is slated to ship on April 18, 2017.

However, I recall (several months ago) a statement that a digital version would be available much earlier — on November 2016. I’ll update once details are revealed, or if that’s delayed. Stay tuned, and make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook (links at the bottom).

Originally, Blizzard Entertainment revealed plans for this graphic novel at the SDCC 2015.

Blizzplanet had a reporter at the SDCC 2015 to take video of the Blizzard Publishing Panel. The video and transcript may be found here.
