A comic based on Call of Duty: Vanguard

Dexerto has word of a special promotion comic based on the computer game Call of Duty's entry subtitled Vanguard, and the spotlight is on the following protagonist:
Sledgehammer Games released a teaser for a comic book centered around one of the game’s four protagonists, Lt. Polina Petrova. Petrova is from the Soviet Union, a sniper from the 138th Rifle Division. Polina’s character is inspired by the real Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who was a sniper in the Red Army with over 300 confirmed kills.

The writers of Vanguard are hosting a panel at New York Comic-Con on October 10, where attendees will get a free issue of the comic. The panel is titled, “Navigating a Narrative Minefield: Writing a Call of Duty Story Across Video Games and Comics.”
I hope this won't turn out to be politicized, and since this is a game involving WW2, something to consider from a historical perspective, if it matters, is that the Soviets had originally allied with Germany's National Socialists, and if a video game like this is intended to be "true to life", it's not good to whitewash actual history as it unfolded. Point: video games can be used as propaganda vehicles for the wrong reasons, just like comics.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
