“World of Tanks: Roll Out!” Comic Book Issue #1 and Premium Tanks Release on August 31

World War II inspired story penned by legendary comic icon Garth Ennis advances to retailers

Wargaming and Dark Horse Comics announced today that the highly anticipated first issue of the World of Tanks: Roll Out comic series will hit comic book stores and digital distribution on August 31st. The first ever comic book based on the “Wargaming Battle Universe” brings all of the thrills, tension and armored conflict World of Tanks players demand. Inspired by Wargaming’s massively multiplayer online game World of Tanks, the hard-hitting story written by Garth Ennis (Preacher, War Stories, The Punisher), is a historically based war tale, skillfully illustrated by the renowned Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd,Strontium Dog, War Stories Vol. 2). Each issue is wrapped in the epic cover art of Isaac Hannaford (HALO: Reach, The Punisher) and bursts with the explosive action found in the panels of World of Tanks: Roll Out.

The premier issue of armored combat debuts alongside the first in a series of in-game Premium Tank bundles based on the iconic, “hero” tanks of the comic book’s storyline. Now tankers can read the adventures of the valiant tanks in the comic book and continue the adventure by playing the ‘hero’ tanks in the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 4 versions of World of Tanks.

Set during the epic tank battles of 1944, which proved to be pivotal on the outcome of the war, World of Tanks: Roll Out follows a crew of young British tankers as they push deeper into post D-Day Normandy toward a battalion of seasoned German armored units. Flanked and tracked by the Germans at almost every turn, the inexperienced British tankers traverse a battle scarred France while the danger around them escalates and the outcome of the war hangs in the balance.

“As we explored the idea of a World of Tanks comic book, the first priority was ensuring that we told an authentic and historically based tale of combat that was in line with Warming’s commitment to military authenticity,” stated Erik Whiteford, Wargaming’s Director of Marketing. “Having the leading writer in the war comic genre, Garth Ennis, and legendary illustrator, Carlos Ezquerra, as the creative team behind World of Tanks: Roll Outguaranteed the execution of a story in true Wargaming fashion; gritty and packed with realistic and pulse-pounding tank combat.”

As a part of the release of World of Tanks: Roll Out the World of Tanks premium shop for console will be offering limited time bundles featuring the British tanker’s Cromwell, known as “Snakebite." Pulled directly from the pages of the comic, the signature Tier VI British Cromwell light tank offers tankers the Snakebite Crew Skill, which improves overall accuracy. Nimble and highly maneuverable, this tank darts across the map trading armor for speed while still packing a powerful punch. Three individual Snakebite themed bundles will be available on August 31.

World of Tanks: Roll Out comic issue #1 will be available digitally at Dark Horse Digital and in comic book stores in North America, Australia, Western and Eastern Europe on August 31 followed by the release for four more issues of intense tank combat.

Image Comics brings you Hadrian's Wall

An all-new miniseries from the acclaimed C.O.W.L. creative team

The man who shot Simon Moore four times and married his ex-wife has been found dead aboard the spacecraft Hadrian’s Wall. But Simon isn’t a suspect, he’s the private investigator hired to explain the death, and it’s his ex-wife who emerges as one of the suspects. This fall, writers and co-creators Kyle Higgins (C.O.W.L., Nightwing) and Alec Siegel (C.O.W.L., Avengers), reunite with artist Rod Reis (C.O.W.L., Justice League) for HADRIAN’S WALL, an intergalactic noir with drugs and divorce, crime and conspiracy, and a last chance for redemption in the far reaches of space.

“Hadrian's Wall is a locked-door murder mystery in outer space,” said Higgins. “This series brings together our favorite parts of noir—cold blooded murder, the P.I. with a checkered past, and political corruption—with an epic, widescreen, science fiction story.”

“Rod Reis’ stellar art and designs recalls the aesthetic of Blade Runner andAlien, while creating a world that is personal and unique,” said Siegel. “His storytelling has gone to a whole new level.”

"This book started with our love for 1970's and 80's Sci-Fi, and quickly grew into something much more. From a murdered crew member, to a failed marriage, to a colony that just wants independence, this is a story about broken relationships—what tears people apart, and what it takes to bring them back together," said Higgins.

First announced at Image Expo, HADRIAN’S WALL is a six issue miniseries from the creative team behind the critically-acclaimed series C.O.W.L. in which the secrets of everyone involved are as dark as the space that surrounds them and one man’s investigation could make the interstellar Cold War go red hot.

HADRIAN’S WALL #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, September 14th.

Nintendo News: Pokémon Mania Helps Drive Nintendo 3DS to No. 1

The Nintendo 3DS platform finished July atop the hardware and software sales charts according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the U.S. The strong performance is in part thanks to the release of the Monster Hunter Generations game, continued momentum from the price drop of the Nintendo 2DS system and widespread positive public reception for the Pokémon GO mobile app, which has renewed interest in core Pokémon games on Nintendo systems. Additionally:
  • The Nintendo 3DS family of systems sold nearly 80 percent more units this July compared to the same time period a year ago, and finished as the overall best-selling video game system in July.

Dark Horse announces release of a new Cecil Castellucci graphic novel

Dark Horse is proud to announce the launch of the original graphic novel Soupy Leaves Home, written by Eisner nominee Cecil Castellucci (The P.L.A.I.N. Janes, Janes in Love) and illustrated by Jose Pimienta (The Leg, From Scratch).

The graphic novel follows Pearl “Soupy” Plankette, a young girl who runs away from home to escape her abusive father and an unhappy future. Disguised and reborn as a boy named Soupy, she finds a kindred spirit in Remy “Ramshackle” Renault, a hobo who helps her navigate life on the rails. Together, the two try to survive life in Depression-era America by hopping trains to get to California.

Winner of the Joe Shuster Award in the Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Writer category, Cecil Castellucci has built a successful career in creating engaging content for young adults: “When you write stories, you are a bit of a time traveler. When you write for young people you are often going to a time and place with them for the first time, which is beyond exciting. I knew that during the Depression, many young people took to the rails, and train travel and hobo signs have always fascinated me. In Soupy Leaves Home, I wanted to write about a girl who feels as though her whole world is shut down, by the time she lives in, the family she has, the gender that she is, until she abandons her old self and finds a new secret world that opens up to her and shows her the way through her own depression.”

Dark Horse publishes collection of Kristen Gudsnuk’s “Henchgirl”

Dark Horse is excited to announce the trade publication of the Henchgirlcollection from Kristen Gudsnuk. Henchgirl is a unique series that subverts the typical superhero trope by telling the story from the perspective of a villain.

Originally published by Scout Comics, Henchgirl depicts the complexities of Mary Posa’s life. The daughter of Crepe City’s most famous superhero couple, Mary deals with the pressure of disappointing her family while avoiding the wrath of Monsieur Butterfly, her supervillain boss. Cursed with a conscience, Mary does everything she can to be something other than a henchgirl, but her plans for freedom always go awry.

Henchgirl creator Kristen Gudsnuk described the parallels between Mary’s life and her own: “A lot of Henchgirlcomes from my own experiences of being a twenty-something stuck in a dead-end job. Luckily, I turned to comics instead of villainy. I’ve always loved filtering superhero and pop culture tropes through my own cynical perspective.”

The Henchgirl trade goes on sale March 29, 2017.

Beloved comic writer Neil Gaiman returns to "Forbidden Brides"

Dark Horse is excited to announce Neil Gaiman (Sandman) is returning to one of his darkly complicated short stories in Neil Gaiman’s Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire. Originally published as a short story in Gaiman’s collection Fragile Things, Forbidden Brides has been adapted by Shane Oakley into a stunning hardcover graphic novel. Gaiman’s most recent graphic novel, How to Talk to Girls at Parties, debuted at number three on the New York Timesbestseller list.

This haunting example of satirical gothic literature tells the story of a writer struggling to compose nonfiction on a dark, stormy night. Wishing to create serious stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts, the author is unsuccessful because of his tendency to insert comedy into his dark tales. Talking ravens, family disagreements, and interruptions from his creepy butler further hinder his literary efforts.

Writer Neil Gaiman explained the overarching theme of Forbidden Brides and the aspects of this story that influenced Sandman: “It’s about what fantasy is, and why we write it, and what it would mean to write fantasy if you lived in a Gothic universe. Some of it prefigured things I’d do in Sandman four years later.”

Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire goes on sale January 25, 2017. The hardcover graphic novel is available for preorder from Penguin Random House and Amazon.

Dark Horse Announces New Series From Matt Kindt and David Rubín

Dark Horse is proud to announce a new series from the talented creative team of Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT, Past Aways, Super Spy, Dept. H) and David Rubín (The Hero, The Rise of Aurora West). Ether is a fantastical story about what happens when science and magic intersect.

Ether follows the adventures of Boone Dias, a science-minded interdimensional explorer from Earth, as he tries to reconcile the existence of magic with his own scientific reality. Boone is a regular visitor to the Ether, a supernatural realm with magical residents. The Ether’s residents trust Boone to solve their toughest crimes by combining his background in science with the Ether’s magic.

Cocreator Matt Kindt explained the parallels between Boone’s science-mindedness and his own: “Ether came from my love-hate relationship with the supernatural. It’s not a genre I’m particularly attracted to as a creator, and I really wanted to figure out why. So in a lot of ways, the main character in Ether is a surrogate for the part of me that wants to explore the supernatural but also wants everything to be explained — which can literally ruin the magic of a supernatural story.”

The first issue of Ether goes on sale November 16, 2016, with four subsequent issues published monthly.
