Dark Horse StarCraft Comics #1 Free For Limited Time

Throughout the month of May and for a limited time, Dark Horse has made the first issue of three StarCraft graphic novels free to read digitally.

  • StarCraft: Scavengers #1
  • StarCraft: Soldiers #1
  • StarCraft: Survivors #1

I recommend to read them in the same order shown above, as that’s how they were released originally.

StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel’Naga Audible

The StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel’Naga Audible is coming on March 10, 2020. It is truly special, because this unabridged audiobook based on Gabriel Mesta’s 2001 novel is narrated by Neil Kaplan … the voice actor behind Tychus Findlay.

Neil Kaplan is also known as Emperor Zarkon / Galra Guard / Officer Sablan in Voltron: Legendary Defender (TV Series), Dominus Ghaul (Destiny 2), Cenarius (World of Warcraft: Legion), Kiyoyasu (Naruto TV series 2006), but holy #$% … his most immortalized character gotta be Optimus Prime in Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2000). He has worked in many other video games and TV series to fit all in here. Your scrolling finger is going to hurt.

Starcraft: The Dark Templar, Shadow Hunters Audible

The StarCraft: The Dark Templar, Shadow Hunters Audible is now available for pre-order. This unabridged audiobook will go live on March 12, 2020. The audibook is narrated by…. wait for it… Christie Golden!

You should also purchase the Audible version of the first part of this book: StarCraft: The Dark Templar, Firstborn Audible.

Something truly interesting about this novel is that none of the main characters have ever appeared in-game in StarCraft II, which makes you wonder if the lore was meant for the cancelled StarCraft project, or if we will someday see it introduced in a new StarCraft game — in the same way Diablo: The Sin War introduced Diablo III story elements before that game shipped.

Nevertheless, we did see some elements from this novel in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void.

I wrote a quick 2-paragraph spoiler summary preview inside this accordion.

Jake Ramsey is an archeologist hired by Mengsk to study a Xel'Naga temple, and inadvertedly encounters a dying Protoss who placed herself in a time-delayed stasis field -- but not any kind of Protoss. Zamara is a protoss preserver, sort of a living archive of memories of protoss who ever lived in the past thousands of years.

As Jake reaches out to the enigmatic protoss, she comes to life and grabs him -- transfering her consciousness into him, and slowly altering his brain to be able to hold all those protoss memories.

StarCraft: WarChest – Shadow Wars: The Complete Comic Collection

Blizzard Entertainment will publish a new hardcover collecting the most recent StarCraft II War Chest comics, under the Blizzard Legends label. The hardcover is slated to ship on March 17, 2020; but pre-orders are now open for the StarCraft: WarChest – Shadow Wars: The Complete Comic Collection

For past novels, comics, and audiobooks visit the Blizzplanet Store.

StarCraft Audiobooks

Some of the StarCraft novels have been released as StarCraft Audiobooks over the years, which you can listen to at home, in the car, or while traveling.

It seems more StarCraft audiobooks might be coming at some point. For example, two books of the Dark Templar trilogy are yet to be released as an audiobook. Follow @blizzplanetcom for updates. I’ll share when those become available.

Trivia: Neil Kaplan (Tychus voice actor) was hired to narrate some of the StarCraft audiobooks: Liberty’s Crusade; I, Mengsk; and Heaven’s Devils. Christie Golden narrated her own novel The Dark Templar, Firstborn.

StarCraft: Soldiers (Volume 2) Paperback

Dark Horse Comics just unleashed the StarCraft: Soldiers (StarCraft Volume 2) paperback details and release date. It will ship on August 20, 2019 and pre-orders are open.

The new details reveal something I was not expecting. StarCraft: Soldiers is not an ongoing comics book series, as I previously posted and assumed. It is another 4-issue limited series. This paperback only collects issue #1-4.

StarCraft: Soldiers #1 will be released as a stand-alone digital download on January 23, 2019 (for Kindle PC and Mobile).

Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Star Wars) is joined by veteran animation and Blizzard Entertainment comics writer Andrew R. Robinson (Overwatch Anthology, World of Warcraft) as they co-plot StarCraft: Soldiers, with art by Miguel Sepulveda (Lone Wolf 2100, Green Lantern).

Newly graduated Lieutenant Shivani Singh wants to defend the Dominion on the front lines, but it will take more than good grades and confidence to survive on the edge of zerg space. After a routine patrol goes awry, Singh launches an investigation to root out threats to the fragile peace between the Dominion and the zerg Swarm.

Collects StarCraft Series 2, comics #1-#4.

StarCraft: Scavengers #1-4 Review

I have been an avid reader of all Blizzard properties that come to books and comics. I had a lot of expectations knowing that BlizzCon was in the horizon. In my opinion, Dark Horse Comics didn’t deliver a satisfactory story in StarCraft: Scavengers #1-4. I will explain in my review below.

Jody Houser is a known writer in DC Comics and Marvel Comics with Justice League of America: Road to Rebirth, Supergirl, Star Wars: Rogue One Adaptation, Amazing Spiderman: Renew Your Vows (2016-2018), and Spider-Girls under her portfolio… to name a few.

 

OVERVIEW

“After years of terrible warfare, a paper-thin ceasefire is all that stands between terrans and their erstwhile alien adversaries, the enigmatic protoss and the savage zerg. But peace can be a prison for those who wish to make their fortune in the Koprulu sector. All it takes is one ship, one daring crew… and everything could change.”

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.

Praise for StarCraft: Scavengers:

“A tense, white-knuckle deep space thriller of the finest kind!”—Infinite Earths

“This is the perfect tie-in comic for a video game – something that doesn’t try to recreate the experience of the video game, but instead uses an existing world as a backdrop for an interesting story.”—ComicBook.com

“Good science fiction setting with well-rounded characters. A great glimpse into other parts of the StarCraft Universe.”—Major Spoilers
