Marvel is going to publish a League of Legends graphic novel in 2019

Marvel League of Legends graphic novel

Riot Games and Marvel are taking the first step to an eventual League of Legends Hollywood movie. Come on, don't say that you didn't think about it as well? Creating a graphic novel based on League of Legends to be published by Marvel in 2019 could serve as a perfect gauge for a potential movie.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. A League of Legends graphic novel is being created by Riot Games right now. Riot's very own Odin Austin Shafer is the writer, while the artwork is designed by Heavy Vinyl’s Nina Vakueva. The graphic novel will focus on Ashe's origins and the release is planned for May 2019, but you can start reading on December 19, as it is made available in monthly instalments.

Greg Street, Head of Creative Development at Riot Games said: “We love comics as a way to tell stories because it gives League of Legends fans an opportunity to see the world of Runeterra and not just read about it.”

“We see similarities between the League of Legends Universe and the Marvel Universe, as both of them feature an array of characters with compelling and diverse backgrounds. Marvel’s success at developing a world through comics and creating great stories is industry-defining, and we’re thrilled to be working with them to bring our own stories to life.””

The synopsis of the League of Legends graphic novel is the following:

“Raised in the savage wilds of the north, Ashe is an Iceborn, a warrior gifted with a magical connection to her frozen homeland–and burdened by her mother’s fanatical expectations. When they set out on a dangerous quest for the truth behind an ancient myth, bonds are broken, secrets come to light, and Runeterra is forever changed. Will young Ashe become the leader her people need? Or is destiny merely an empty dream?”

Meanwhile, here we are waiting for official news on Riot Games' upcoming title Legend of Runeterra.
