Explore the furthest reaches of the universe with new “StarCraft” comics from Dark Horse

Believe it or not, I don’t think I’ve ever actually sat down and played StarCraft.  Maybe a quick demo or watching alongside a friend, but I never really dove into the game.  I certainly can’t deny its influence and popularity, though, and love that it stretches into the world of comics.  

Due to its popularity, Dark Horse have announced a brand new StarCraft series from the superstar team of Jody Houser, Andrew R. Robinson, Miguel Sepulveda, Michael Atiyeh, and Steve Dutro-- titled StarCraft: Soldiers, and due early next year-- as well as a collection of the incredibly popular StarCraft: Scavengers series.  Check out the details below, and stay tuned for more information as we head into New York Comic-Con.

DARK HORSE COMICS AND BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT EXPLORE THE STARCRAFT UNIVERSE

“StarCraft: Soldiers” Set for a January 2019 Release

Milwaukie, Ore., (September 25, 2018)—The exploration of the StarCraft universe continues to new frontiers! Following the success of StarCraft: Scavengers, Dark Horse and Blizzard Entertainment are excited to announce the next series in the StarCraft comics publishing line—StarCraft: Soldiers! Writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Star Wars) joins Blizzard Entertainment writer Andrew R. Robinson (Overwatch Anthology) on this latest addition to the StarCraft expanded universe. Artist Miguel Sepulveda (Lone Wolf 2100: Chase the Setting Sun, Red Lanterns), colorist Michael Atiyeh (StarCraft: Scavengers, World of Tanks: Citadel), and letterer Steve Dutro (The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story, Plants vs. Zombies) round out this star-studded creative team.

In StarCraft: Soldiers, recently graduated Lieutenant Shivani Singh is eager to defend the Dominion on the front lines. But after she’s posted on the faraway planet of Cavir,  she realizes that it will take more than good grades and confidence to survive on the edge of zerg space.

StarCraft: Soldiers #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on January 23, 2019, and StarCraft: Scavengers will be available February 19, 2019.
