The slow burn of online hype for Overwatch continues. This time, however, instead of an animated short like Recall or Alive, we get a solo piece as an online comic, shedding some light on the antics of the outlaw Jesse McCree.
Read the comic over at http://comic.playoverwatch.com/en-us, and also check out Blizzard’s press release on the matter.
“Justice ain’t gonna dispense itself.
It’s high noon as McCree takes center stage in “Train Hopper,” the first in a series of free digital comic shorts that further illuminate the characters and world of Overwatch. “Train Hopper” follows a day in the life of gunslinging outlaw Jesse McCree, the former Blackwatch operative who metes out his own brand of vigilante justice.
In “Train Hopper,” McCree hitches a ride on a hypertrain to Houston in the hopes of skipping town and laying low for a while. But soon after the engine starts, he realizes his trip is going to be anything but “low profile.”
Written by Blizzard’s own Robert Brooks and illustrated by Bengal, “McCree: Train Hopper” is now available to read in full at comic.playoverwatch.com. We hope you enjoy it, and stay tuned for more Overwatch digital comics coming soon!
