The premise behind World of Tanks seems silly, but in actuality it's actually pretty brilliant. The game has garnered plenty of attention and now Dark Horse Comics wants to shift some of that attention to a comic book in World of Tanks: Roll Out!. The series will be a five issue series, rolling into comic book stores across the US and European territories and digital distribution in the fall of 2016. It will be written by Garth Ennis, illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra and feature covers by Isaac Hannaford.
World of Tanks: Roll Out! is set during the tank battles of the summer 1944, featuring British versus German armored units in post D-Day Normandy. It’s the German Panthers vs. British Cromwells, as the British tankers push deeper into France and toward the might of the Germans. World of Tanks: Roll Out! #1 will be available digitally in the fall of 2016 in comic book shops across North America and Europe, and will follow a monthly cadence of release for five issues of brutal tank combat.
