Marvel Comics and Riot Games partner for origin comic about League of Legends’ Ashe

The comic will focus on the champion’s origin story

League of Legends: Ashe Riot Games

We’ll soon know a few more details about the origin story of one of League of Legends’ most iconic champions thanks to a comic that will be co-created by Riot Games and Marvel Comics, the two companies announced early Monday morning.

The comic will focus on Ashe, a white haired archer and leader of the largest tribe in the icy-frozen region known as the Freljord. The comic will be called League of Legends: Ashe: Warmother and will focus on the character's origin story. Beyond simply focusing on her origin story, Riot and Marvel didn’t give many details on what the actual story of the comic would be except saying that it would follow her from a fairly young age.

Ashe was a natural choice to receive a comic tie-in thanks to her largely unexplored role within the game’s universe and the fact that she has featured so heavily in the game’s marketing on and off since its release almost a decade ago.

The Ashe: Warmother will go on sale in May 2019 and will be written by Riot Games writer Odin Austin Shafer and will feature art work from Nina Vakueva, who previously worked on the series Heavy Vinyl.
