Skybound Will Adapt Summoners War Comics

Turn-based strategy game fans might have heard of the massively multiplayer online game Summoners War, which is going really good to the Android and iOS users these days. Com2us, the South Korean developers of the game has recently decided that they want to create a brand-new comic book series based on the world of Summoners War and who else to do it better other than Skybound Entertainment? We guess no one at this point.

Skybound's CEO North Catherine Winder seems very excited at this announcement and they are looking forward to build a narrative based foundation of a fictional Universe that is based on Summoners War, partnering with Com2us. There are so much to explore in the magical fantasy themed word of the game and a lot of scope for creative expansion.

Skybound's founder Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt) is also looking forward to work on the book as well. Even though this acclaimed comic-book creator will not be writing plotlines for the comics, he will be overseeing the project. The primary goal of Com2us and Skybound's partnership is to reach out audiences from around the world and different cultures through building and expanding universe of the franchise in different mediums.

Com2us studio has full faith on Robert Kirkman's work as the guy needs no introduction to people anyway. Those who may or may not know him have at least heard of The Walking Dead, which was his brain-child on Image Comics and now has become a global phenomenon after it was adapted into a television series on AMC TV. So, everyone on board with the Summoners War comic-book tie-in project is pretty assured about the quality of the upcoming book.

Developer Com2us's Summoners War lets a player to choose from and summon a thousand different monsters to duel. The game has already crossed the landmark of 80 million downloads on mobile devices and generated over one billion dollars revenue so far. Aside from the upcoming comics, the studio has plan for producing an animated series and much more stuff that is focused on the game and its base elements.
