Could this be the most ambitious crossover in the history of gaming?
Two big names in the industry team up to tell amazing stories!
League of Legends: Ashe: Warmother
In the past years, we've seen and read comics published by Riot Games to visually support a certain champion's existing lore.
Long-time League of Legends comic readers are in for a delight as Marvel announces their collaboration with Riot Games.
Graphic novels based on popular MOBA game League of Legends will be released monthly. The first champion to be featured in this project is Freljord's queen, Ashe. Graphic novel LEAGUE OF LEGENDS: ASHE: WARMOTHER will be available physically on May 2019 next year. The first part of the comics is already available digitally today, December 19, 2018.
Ashe: Warmother is the first full-length comic based on League of Legends. The title will be focusing on the origins of Ashe – how this queen came to be to what she is today.
According to Marvel's editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski, the extensive universe and lore of League of Legends characters is ideal for this graphic novel project.
“'League of Legends' is one of the most well-known games in the industry, and their unique world and extensive roster of rich characters and are a perfect fit for comic books. We’re excited to partner with Riot and help build the League of Legends Universe for fans and players around the world.”
To complement the statement above, Riot Games's Head of Creative Department Greg Street gives his insights about the collaboration.
“We see similarities between the League of Legends Universe and the Marvel Universe, as both of them feature an array of characters with compelling and diverse backgrounds. Marvel's success at developing a world through comics and creating great stories is industry-defining, and we're thrilled to be working with them to bring our own stories to life."
