SDCC 2015 Overwatch: The Omnic Crisis Graphic Novel

Micky Neilson announced he is writing a graphic novel titled OVERWATCH: THE OMNIC CRISIS. Artwork will be penciled by Ludo Lullabi (WORLD OF WARCRAFT: The ASHBRINGER). We have more details in our SDCC 2015 Overwatch coverage.

Neilson: First off, I can’t even tell you all how excited I am to be writing OVERWATCH: THE OMNIC CRISIS!

My fellow story comrades here at Blizzard started me off with an already amazing outline, and the project has only gotten better from there! For us authors, some books/stories almost seem to write themselves; others need to be dragged out from the inner recesses of our brains kicking and screaming. I’m happy to say the Overwatch GN falls into the former category. Overwatch is the most fun I’ve had writing a comic in a long time, and I can’t wait for you all to experience it!

So excited to work with Ludo Lullabi again. Ludo and I first worked together on World of Warcraft: Ashbringer and Ludo’s art has only gotten better.

Overwatch: Omnic Crisis will detail the origins of the international team called Overwatch. It will feature Jack Morrison, just featured in a short animated piece, as well as Reinhardt, Torbjorn and more!

If you don’t know what Overwatch is yet, for shame! Go here and be enlightened.
