Skybound And Com2uS Announces ‘Summoners War: Awakening’ Game Tie-In

by Olly MacNamee

Skybound and game publisher Com2uS, today announced the launch of Summoners War: Awakening, a new comic book series based on the worldwide mobile game. The same creative team behind the previously released Summoners War: Legacy – writer Justin Jordan and artist Luca Claretti with colours by Igor Monti (Radiant Black) – Summoners War: Awakening #1 will arrive in comic book shops Wednesday April 19th, 2023.

“Return to the world of Alea, as war rages between armies that summon magical creatures to battle each other in a seemingly never-ending conflict. Now, newly trained summoner Rai and her allies are stranded deep within enemy territory, with threats from soldiers on the ground, sky pirates in the clouds, and a bounty hunter on their trail. Discover new friends, new foes, and powerful creatures in the next chapter of the action-packed Summoners War saga! ” 

Skybound Editor, Amanda LaFranco, said of this sequel series:

“I’m so excited to explore more of Summoners War in this new series. As a personal fan of all things in the fantasy genre, Summoners War is one of those projects that lets you go big and bold, and really expand out a world, but I also really love Rai’s tenacity and Tomas’ cynicism. Continuing from Summoners War: Legacy, the focus of this story arc, Awakening, is all about Rai developing as a Summoner and finding new abilities, but also growing as a human being. Rai and Tomas have a lot to learn from each other in this arc, and Justin and Luca have developed so many cool new characters and set pieces. I think any fantasy fan can pick this up and enjoy diving into this world.” 

The Summoners War: Awakening comic series is the latest expansion to the Summoners War IP.  This comes on the back of Skybound’s previous comic series Legacy, and the latest new mobile game entitled Summoners War: Chronicles, which was released back in November.
