Overwatch Year of the Rooster Comic

Winston comic

The latest Overwatch comic is unlikely to spark as much controversy and man tears as the last, as it’s just about a little Winston being read a story on his lunar base.

In case you missed the last one, you can check out Tracer’s comic here.

This latest comic is basically an excuse to look at some of the concept art for the new skins, by the looks of it.

It’s very light on story, but it’s still a good chance to see your favourite Overwatch heroes reimagined as Chinese legends. Check it out here.
