Vanguard comic book
Sledgehammer Games released a teaser for a comic book centered around one of the game’s four protagonists, Lt. Polina Petrova. Petrova is from the Soviet Union, a sniper from the 138th Rifle Division. Polina’s character is inspired by the real Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who was a sniper in the Red Army with over 300 confirmed kills.
The writers of Vanguard are hosting a panel at New York Comic-Con on October 10, where attendees will get a free issue of the comic. The panel is titled, “Navigating a Narrative Minefield: Writing a Call of Duty Story Across Video Games and Comics.”
