A collection of Apex Legends: Overtime, written by Jesse Stern with art by Neil Edwards, currently working on the B7 Comics project, Pilgrim – Secrets and Lies, was released earlier this year.
The Legends from the Battle Royale video game, Apex Legends, find themselves pulled together to rescue the city from Mad Scientists, brutal assassins, and the sudden and sinister grip of The Syndicate, a corrupt cabal attempting to “fix” arena outcomes in their favor. Will the legends hold up to their celebrity status and be the heroes Solace needs?
Players are familiar with the fierce gladiators of King’s Canyon Arena in Apex Legends. Now they can see what life is like for their favourite Legends outside the arena, in the wild and vibrant dystopian city of Solace. Some of the victorious celebrate together while the others go about their night, blowing off steam or investigating the strange and often nefarious events happening in the neon-lit depths of the city.
Each contestant came to the arena for different reasons: glory, fame, wealth, revenge, redemption, and more. This book gives fans a look at their humanity, the good, the bad, and even… the robotic?
Published by Dark Horse Comics, with pencils by Neil Edwards (Assassin’s Creed, Dark Avengers, Pilgrim), inks from Keith Champagne (Stranger Things, Green Lantern), and script by film and videogame writer Jesse Stern (Call of Duty 2, NCIS), Apex Legends: Overtime is available from all good book and comic shops.
