Skybound, in partnership with game publisher Com2uS, today unveiled an exciting first look at Summoners War: Awakening, a new comic book series based on the worldwide hit mobile game. The series reunites the all-star team behind Summoners War: Legacy, writer Justin Jordan (Harrower) and artist Luca Claretti (Marvel Snap) and will feature colors by Igor Monti (Radiant Black).
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!
The Summoners War: Awakening comic series is the latest expansion to the Summoners War IP, following Skybound’s previous comic series Legacy, which is now available as a collection (AUG210122) everywhere books are sold.
Awakening debuts alongside the latest new mobile game entitled Summoners War: Chronicles, released November 2022. The variety of expansions is a testament to the game’s success and longevity, which proves to be a major tentpole for Com2uS’ gaming portfolio. Com2us has been in partnership with Skybound since 2017 jointly releasing Summoners War comics, The Walking Dead mobile games, and much more. Com2uS is extending its business territory from mobile games to Global Media Contents Company that covers different entertainment genres.
Summoners War: Awakening #1 (FEB230051) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, April 19, 2023.
