It’s certainly arguable that Overwatch poster girl Tracer gets plenty of attention on her own, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve a bit more attention. The multiplayer shooter is very much into the high-speed superheroine with a new comic book series and a new event.
The comic, called Tracer — London Calling, is a five-issue collaboration with Dark Horse Comics featuring New York Times best-selling artist Babs Tarr and Eisner award-winning scribe Mariko Tamaki. The series promises plenty of lore for the Omnics of the London Underground as well as Tracer herself, with new issues due to release every month.
The comic is also inspiring a new event called Tracer’s Comic Challenge that will offer up rewards like an epic Tracer skin that features art from the comic on the character’s leggings, along with a player spray and player icon. More rewards can also be earned from watching certain Twitch streamers during the event. It’s all due to kick off today, September 15th.
