Garth Ennis, the comic book writer best known for his work on Preacher and Punisher, is turning Wargaming's World of Tanks into a comic book series, publisher Dark Horse announced today. The five-issue series, World of Tanks: Roll Out, will be available digitally and in comic book stores this fall.
Joining Ennis on World of Tanks: Roll Out is Carlos Ezquerra, the co-creator of Judge Dredd. Ezquerra and Ennis have previously collaborated on titles like Preacher, Hitman and the World War II series Battlefields.
Here's Dark Horse's description of World of Tanks: Roll Out:
World of Tanks: Roll Out! is set during the tank battles of the summer 1944, featuring British versus German armored units in post D-Day Normandy. It's the German Panthers vs. British Cromwells, as the British tankers push deeper into France and toward the might of the Germans.
Covers will be illustrated by Isaac Hannaford (Halo: Reach, The Punisher). You can check out a sample page from the upcoming Roll Out below.
World of Tanks was first released in 2010 and has since attracted more than 90 million players, according to developer Wargaming. The massively multiplayer online game has been released on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
