Dark Horse Comics and Blizzard Entertainment are the best of buds. One brings the comic book publishing savvy while the other brings video games that fans all over the world love to play. Ovewatch is the latter's latest phenomenon and now the former is developing a publishing program based on the game that consists of digital comics, a graphic novel and an art book. Dark Horse has already begun republishing a series of free digital comics by Blizzard Entertainment that further illuminate the characters and world of Overwatch. A number of eight-page digital comics are already available through Dark Horse’s digital comics platforms, with more currently in production and slated for release in the future.
A hardcover original Overwatch graphic novel has been slotted for release in April 2017. This brand-new entry in the Overwatch canon will contain one hundred pages of sequential artwork telling the story of the original Overwatch strike team. Summer 2017 will see the release of The Art of Overwatch, a stunning collection of never-before-seen concept art from the critically acclaimed game.
