The online game “SMITE: Battleground of the Gods” comes to comics!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse proudly announces the newest video game comic book in its long line of best-selling titles with SMITE: The Pantheon War!
From veteran games writer John Jackson Miller (Star Wars, Mass Effect), cowriter Jack Banish, and artist Eduardo Francisco (Eve: Valkyrie, Captain Midnight), SMITE: The Pantheon War collects the three-part digital comic series telling the tale of the looming war between the pantheons!
It is an age where gods live among the mortals over which they rule. The worship of mortals is needed by the gods to maintain their divinity—but the number of gods has swelled, and there are fewer mortal faithful for the individual gods in each pantheon. Only the gods who maintain worshipers will survive, and so tensions are rising among the pantheons. There is an uneasy peace…but peace is not desired by all!
