Heroes of Skyrealm Comes to Comics

Dynamite Entertainment is teaming up with Mechanist Games to produce original comics based on their forthcoming Heroes of Skyrealm game.

Coming to iOS and Android devices in Summer 2016, Heroes of Skyrealm blends a core of team-based action RPG gameplay with an addictive towers-and-traps strategic layer, as a ragtag crew of sky pirates, steampunk robots, and arcane warriors fight back against an invading empire from beyond the horizon.

Set several years before the game, the Heroes of Skyrealm comic tells the story of Darius, a young magic user in the spacefaring Unbroken Armada. After a routine mission to Skyrealm goes awry, Darius is thrown into the battle of a lifetime – and uncovers a secret that will change this unfamiliar world forever. Can Darius’ powers free him from the den of a pirate queen? Will the ingenious inventor Beth survive the coming war?

The Heroes of Skyrealm comic is a joint creative collaboration between Mechanist and Dynamite, with members of the game’s production team working closely with the comic’s creative team to ensure it ties in tightly with the game. The story is by game writer Edwin McRae, with scripts being provided by Rik Hoskin, art by Ilaria Gelli, and colors by Aditya Nugraha.

Look for Heroes of Skyrealm – both the game and comics – coming your way this summer!

But Chitus and his gemlings aren’t about to give up without a fight, and neither are they about to play by the rules.  The Army of Purity must give everything they have to win the day. And though devoted to his cause, Victario may find the sacrifice simply too great to bear.  Grinding Gear Games and Dynamite Entertainment present the never-before-told story behind the devastation of Wraeclast.
