Blizzard Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics announced StarCraft: Scavengers today, a four-issue miniseries set in the StarCraft universe.
Written by Jody Houser (DC Comics’ Mother Panic, Valiant Entertainment’s Faith) and drawn by Gabriel Guzmán (Dark Horse Comics’ Mass Effect: Discovery, Star Wars), StarCraft: Scavengers will follow a group of Terrans on “the job of their lifetimes: pillaging a derelict Protoss ship in a decaying orbit above an uninhabited planet.”
“The scavengers’ dangerous mission is seen from the point of view of a young, inexperienced engineer,” Dark Horse said in a press release. “The team must scavenge the ship’s priceless tech before it burns up in the planet’s atmosphere, but can they beat the clock and avoid being busted by Dominion police forces?”
StarCraft: Scavengers #1 will be released on July 25, 2018, and will be available to preorder from comic shops “soon,” according to the Dark Horse press release. Here’s a look at the full cover, from Gabriel Guzmán:
Blizzard has previously worked with publishers Tokyopop and DC Comics/Wildstorm on StarCraft comics, with StarCraft: Frontline and the StarCraft graphic novel, respectively. Blizzard also publishes digital comics based on the franchise as part of StarCraft 2’s War Chest program.
