Dark Horse And Wargaming Team Up For World Of Tanks Comic

 
 
 
Dark Horse Comics and Wargaming team up to bring a new comic series to life based on the free-to-play MMO World of Tanks. It will be available this fall.
 
World of Tanks: Roll Out! is set during WWII, particularly focusing on tank battles that occurred in summer 1944 between British and German armored units. The comic will be written by Garth Ennies (War Stories, The Punisher) and Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd, War Stories Vol. 2) will work on the illustrations, except for the covers, which will be done by Isaac Hannaford, a concept artist for games such as Halo: Reach.

I mean, all calls for "idiot", "retard" etc, seem to have been translated to actual call-signs.

Why do I get the feeling that this story is going to be a variant of the "but that's a prototype tank with a mild steel shell, not armour"?

Will the Cromwell in the comic simulate the historically authentic one in the game - you know, the one that travels at Mach 0.9, can take up to nine solid 75mm hits without degradation to performance, has auto lock on FCS, instant track repair, on board replacement main gun and engine etc.?

Looks pretty good.

 

With tanks in that close formation during combat (last panel) Maybe it done becuse of the artistic reason, but it does not bode well for realism.

There was instances of that in North Africa and then right after Normandy.

You do know there has been a British war comic series called commando comics that has been on going for over fifty years with the same style and stories
https://en.m.wikiped...mmando_(comics)

One of the artist above Carlos Ezquerra even worked for the company the only difference seems to be the panels are in colour. I'm not knocking the comic if they are similar the commando comics were quite entertaining some can be read here.

Some of those Commando Comics really would translate well into movies. I can recall one where there is a haunted Sherman tank, where the ghost of the former commander assists the crew in combat and rides it into its last battle.

 

The funny thing is, they were perceived as aggressive and pro war by many more liberal commentators. Having read many of them, it was notable to see a distinctly anti war theme in some of them. Though that didnt stop them blowing shit up. :D
