This week, we had patch 5.2 to contend with, but next week it's all about the launch of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm
for plenty of players. Blizzard has been slowly releasing promotional material for the new game, including a new cinematic
and a pretty fascinating viral advertising campaign called Project Blackstone
, which is still being updated as the time ticks down to Heart of the Swarm
's launch. And now we have another piece -- a comic about Kerrigan and a glimpse at what she's been through that takes place at some point after she was rescued at the end of Wings of Liberty
Kerrigan -- Hope and Vengeance #0
is a relatively short comic, but the art and writing is top-notch. And here's the kicker -- it's absolutely free. You don't have to pay for the comic, you simply plunk it in your cart, checkout and read. The comic is a fairly brisk 8 pages, but with a story by Cameron Dayton and some really stunning art by Zoddd, not to mention the absence of a price tag, this is a nice treat for StarCraft
To my knowledge, this is the first time Blizzard's ever offered a free digital comic of this scope. And it does make one wonder.
