The League of Legends becomes Marvel comics to explore the rich traditions of the game
Riot Games, the developer of the League of Legends, is collaborating with Marvel Entertainment to make the League to Comory play comical.
It is a rare intersection of the nine-year-old multi-player strategy, whose story has been largely kept to its website.
The two companies are bringing a new novel called Legends University: Ash: The warmth that is due to come out next May.
So far, Riot has limited the ambitions of her comic book to paintings posted on her website, which are timed to certain updates from the hero or cosmetic versions of the skin.
Last September, a video was filmed showing Miss Fortune, a deadly pirate hunter and leader of her own ship seeking revenge on the men who betrayed her.
Stories are often storytelling, based on well-studied traditions that were in the making.
They also often re-imagine league champions with more sympathetic lines of art than the usual beginning art and powerful phrases in the game can really capture.
"These stories are either stand-alone issues for certain heroes in the game or tests for new forms and techniques, These were really useful in knowing the direction we are now committed to our chain with Marvel," he explains.
Cooperation is a rare opportunity for the emergence of riots for years of science that has often emerged as a secondary idea in the game.
It is not clear that its heroes are brothers or former lovers or whether someone else has been killed for example, so you get to know the game.
"We think comics are a great way to tell stories because they combine narrative text with artwork," says Street.
"We can show what the village is in the frozen north of Freljord or what it looks like in a tropical port in Bilgewater."
Ashe: Warmth occurs in the icy icy icy area, highlighting the story of the origin of Ashi, one of the original forty-four champions.
It's often a mantra for the game.
As a warrior, Ashe begins a dangerous search and needs to work as a young leader to save her people.
The story is written by the designer The Big Narration by the writer Riot and the writer Odin Austin Shafer, who has worked on comics and hero scripts before.
This art was created by Nina Faquieva, famous for the 2017 Heavy Vinyl series.
"We see similarities between the University of Mythology of the Universe and the Marvel World where they both include a group of characters with compelling backgrounds and variety," Street said in a press release.
Stories that provide narratives beyond the origins of characters. And alternative acronyms such as K / DA, where four killers are re-imagined as pop stars.
As far as Marvel and Riot want to talk about the similarities between their chosen worlds, the main difference is that after more than a dozen MCU films, the superhero tradition has become more widespread, while many smaller facts about the champions seem more ambiguous.
This installment to comic books, such as the recent music video of the K / DA League, which blends K-pop with electronic sports, can be a further boost in the league's needs for its great visibility.
