    Remember League of Legends? That trending MOBA title just a couple of years ago before the battle royale genre (mostly) took over the online gaming scene? Well, it will be getting the comics treatment from none other than Marvel. The latter and Riot Games are collaborating to bring a series of monthly graphic novels based on the game that will be available digitally starting Wednesday, December 19 and will kick start with an origin story - LEAGUE OF LEGENDS: ASHE: WARMOTHER- diving into the story of archer Ashe:

    This partnership will involve Riot Games writer Odin Austin Shafer with Nina Vakueva's (HEAVY VINYL) art.

    “Many fans of the Marvel Universe and comics share their interests and passion for storytelling with the gaming community,” said C.B. Cebulski, Editor-in-Chief of Marvel. “'League of Legends' is one of the most well-known games in the industry, and their unique world and extensive roster of rich characters and are a perfect fit for comic books. We’re excited to partner with Riot and help build the League of Legends Universe for fans and players around the world.”

    “We love comics as a way to tell stories because it gives 'League of Legends' fans an opportunity to see the world of Runeterra and not just read about it,” said Greg Street, Head of Creative Development at Riot Games. “We see similarities between the League of Legends Universe and the Marvel Universe, as both of them feature an array of characters with compelling and diverse backgrounds. Marvel's success at developing a world through comics and creating great stories is industry-defining, and we're thrilled to be working with them to bring our own stories to life."

    While the first part of the series hits digital platforms Wednesday, December 19, the complete physical version of LEAGUE OF LEGENDS: ASHE: WARMOTHER will be available in May 2019 will be available.

    Despite not playing LoL, I do know a lot about the lore from my friends. It's got quite a bit and not much is ever really mentioned in the games, so a comic would be nice. Hopefully, they keep it the same as the source or at least close enough to it.

    Interesting. League actually has pretty neat lore. Though i'd rather see them do an animated series. Their animated shorts are fantastic. Not quite blizzard level of epic, but still awesome to watch.

    Darn, I can't come up with something edgy
    When he says first season, or seasons in league. We are usually talking about a extreme change that is represented in the version number. So for example, season 1 is technically version 1.x then season 2 is technically version 2.x. Currently we are nearing season 9. Currently still at season eight as of version 8.23. Soon it will be season 9 and version 9.0.. Hopefully that makes sense

    I mean, we are not in Season 8 anymore. The ranked season ended Nov. 12th. This is preseason.
