The Starcraft Universe is Explored in a New Comic Miniseries from Dark Horse and Blizzard

Dark Horse and Blizzard Entertainment have announced a new four-issue comic series: StarCraft: Scavengers. This comic series is the latest addition to Dark Horse and Blizzard Entertainment’s line of publications, preceded by The Art of OverwatchOverwatch Anthology: Volume 1, and World of Warcraft Chronicle (volumes I and II).

Writer Jody Houser and artist Gabriel Guzmán join forces for StarCraft: Scavengers, a new comic series further exploring the expansive universe of Blizzard’s acclaimed science-fiction real-time strategy game series. In StarCraft: Scavengers, a group of terrans hopes to pull off the job of their lifetimes: pillaging a derelict protoss ship in a decaying orbit above an uninhabited planet. The scavengers’ dangerous mission is seen from the point of view of a young, inexperienced engineer. The team must scavenge the ship’s priceless tech before it burns up in the planet’s atmosphere, but can they beat the clock and avoid being busted by Dominion police forces?

Originally released by Blizzard Entertainment in 1998, StarCraft is a real-time strategy game that chronicles the interstellar war between three galactic species: the protoss, the zerg, and the terrans. The saga continues in the acclaimed sequel StarCraft II, which is now available free-to-play—including the epic, award-winning Wings of Liberty™ campaign.

The first issue (of four) of the StarCraft: Scavengers comic series goes on sale July 25, 2018.

Review: Father’s Day #1

fd 001Father’s Day tells the story of a man on the run and a lost long lost daughter that is trying to find him.  While the story opens with a bang and finishes with one, there is little going on in the middle.  For those familiar with comics as a medium, they are likely to see parallels here with a more famous entry, A History of ViolenceA History of Violence (later made into a movie) tells a similar story of a man on the hideout from a violent past, who is once again thrown back into his old life by events outside of his control.

Father’s Day is similar in a lot of ways to this story, at least on the surface and the unique aspects of the story, at least from the first issue seem mostly superficial.  Instead of a blue collar father with a loving family, this is a man on the run whose daughter discovers him, and it is the daughter where any originality in this story might come.  Unfortunately for the story the daughter comes off as mostly two dimensional and although she is portrayed as edgy, it doesn’t really come through for the character either.  The resulting tension between father and daughter is therefore more of an afterthought to the two of them being chased by random mob hitmen.  As with the case of other series, it is therefore likely the same with this one that while it offers this story over four issues, it might have been better to go for more and to build up the characters first as opposed to this story we were immediately demanded to care about the father and daughter that we know almost nothing about.

In a sense there is nothing really wrong with this story, but at the same time it lacking in both originality for its content and in the approachability of the characters.  There is some promise here, as with such randomly presented characters, that indeed something could come of this by the second issue, but equally there is probably not enough of a hook here for the first issue to draw in the readers for another try.
