Starcraft: Ghost Academy (Vol. 1) | Blizzard Legends

StarCraft: Ghost Academy Vol. 1Blizzard Entertainment is re-publishing StarCraft: Ghost Academy (Vol. 1) under the Blizzard Legends publishing label. Pre-orders are now open. The manga book is slated to ship on October 20, 2020.

Originally, StarCraft: Ghost Academy — by Keith R.A. DeCandido (writer) and Fernando Heinz Furukawa (artist) — was published by Tokyopop on February 1, 2010.

Tokyopop’s North America publishing office went out of business a year later (May 31, 2011) and all licenses reverted back to their owners. Blizzard Entertainment obtained the rights of the Warcraft and StarCraft manga thereafter.

Tokyopop returned to business years later in 2018, but StarCraft: Ghost Academy is now re-published under the Blizzard Legends label.

The story of StarCraft: Ghost Academy takes place shortly after the events of Keith R.A. DeCandido’s StarCraft: Ghost — Nova and explores Nova’s experiences in the Ghost Academy.

The manga story also features Gabriel Tosh as a fellow student who grew close to Nova. It was a great story, and some of its ramifications could easily come back in future StarCraft projects, should the creative team decide to explore some aspects of the story.

My original StarCraft: Ghost Academy reviews:

Starcraft: Ghost Academy (Vol. 1)

Elite soldiers known as ghosts are trained to use their special psychic powers for military operations, and one Ghost Academy cadet, Nova, must handle both her teammates and her own demons.
