Blizzard has released a new digital comic, flushing out more of the world of Overwatch.
The first comic we’ve received since the holiday-themed “Reflections,” “Binary” is a comic that focuses on Torbjörn and Bastion. Written by Matt Burns and James Waugh, the story takes place in Northern Sweden. Beginning with an homage to Jaws, the story sees Torbjörn set to take down what townsfolk assume is a ruthless killing machine. Instead, Torbjörn finds Bastion, who is anything but. (This Bastion must not have received the recent buff.)
The art from Joe Ng is awesome, especially the cover image which shows Bastion emerging from the water, covered in marine life. However, one can’t help but feel like this is filler, especially after all of the revelations in the previous comic. Additionally, it doesn’t pertain to anything happening in the storylines unfolding currently in Numbani and Volskaya. Perhaps this one was just to set the tone for a Torbjörn kit re-imagining.
