Skybound Announce New Prequel Comic To MMOG Game ‘Summoner’s War’

Image/Skybound, in partnership with game publisher Com2uS, have announced a comic book series to tie-in to the mobile game series, Summoner’s War.

Summoners War: Legacy will be writtenby writer Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, Reaver) and artist Luca Claretti (Adventure Time Comics) with colour art by Giovanna Niro (Star Trek: Nero) and lettering by Deron Bennett (Excellence, Assassin Nation). The first issue is set to launch this April 2021 digitally and in print.

It’s a comic that will come just in time for the roll out of the newest instalments in the game, to be released on mobile devices: Summoners War: Lost Centuria and Summoners War: Chronicles.

Ahead of a first look at the comic book series, we have a rather informative summary of where this prequel fits I not the expanding saga of Summoner’s War:

“In Summoners War: Legacy, Rai knows there’s only one way out of a nothing town—to become a summoner! Armed with a summoning book of monsters, there would be nowhere she couldn’t go, and no adventure she couldn’t have. There’s only one problem: the world is at war and even untrained summoners like Rai must join the fight.

Recruited by Abuus Dein as an apprentice, Rai finds herself thrust into a battle for the fate of the world that none of them expected. Rai must learn there’s a lot more to life than having fun, but can she become the summoner the world needs in time?

Summoners War: Legacy takes place 35 years before the universe-shattering conflict at the mobile game’s center. The comic series features fan-favorite monsters, explores the fate of Durand’s parents, and expands on the mystical land of Alea and its colorful characters including Abuus, Rai, and Tomas. This riveting addition to Summoners War canon brings a rich lore to the franchise and draws new connections to the upcoming Summoners War games and the Summoners War: Sky Arena game that fans know and love.”

Summoners War: Legacy #1 will be available on Wednesday, April 28th from Image/Skybound.
