Garth Ennis and PJ Holden Deliver New Tank Combat Story
Eisner Award-winning comics legend Garth Ennis (Preacher, Punisher) and artist PJ Holden (Warhammer Monthly, Johnny Woo, 2000 A.D.) once again take command for a new action-packed miniseries inspired by Wargaming’s massively popular online game World of Tanks!
World of Tanks: Citadel serves as a prequel to the previous Roll Out miniseries. Set before D-Day, World of Tanks: Citadel follows two opposing tank crews—one German, one Soviet—as they fight for survival in the Battle of Kursk during World War II. The German tankers, led by tank commander Kraft, find themselves deep behind enemy lines and cut off from the rest of their unit. Meanwhile, the Russian tank crew finds themselves at odds with the war and with each other as they embark on a dangerous and uncertain mission.
World of Tanks: Citadel #1 goes on sale May 9, 2018, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. All single-issue comics will include a code for an in-game item.
Praise for World of Tanks: Roll Out
“So, whether you’re fan of [war] comics already, or you’re just picking one up for the first time, World of Tanks: Roll Out is about as exciting as it gets.”—All-Comic
“Ennis also does a good job of making sure to represent both sides of the conflict, mirroring the British troops’ struggles by simultaneously showing things from the perspective of a German Panzer crew. The similarities between the two sides are highlighted, as are the differences, and it makes for a far more balanced and enjoyable story as a result.”—Big Comic Page
