The newest Overwatch digital comic “Reflections” follows hero Tracer as she takes on the struggles of the season?and reveals something new about her character.
The comic is relatively short with Tracer trying and failing to shop for her partner as all the stores begin to close. It pays off in the end thanks to a good deed, as Tracer and her partner make it to dinner with her fellow hero Winston and they have a pleasant evening after all. (Spoiler alert?) Regarding Tracer’s partner, the digital comic reveals for the first time that Tracer is in love with another woman?yet another comment on the Overwatch developer’s progressive social views, and a follow through on an earlier promise that a character would be revealed as canonically queer.
There is also a motion book version of the comic available by Madefire, complete with sound effects and semi-animated graphics. Unfortunately, there is no full-on voice acting in the motion comic, but hopefully that is coming next.
The Overwatch universe is just as festive in the game as it is in the comic with the recent launch of the Winter Wonderland update.
