Total War: THREE KINGDOMS has just released the final issue of a beautifully illustrated webcomic detailing the events leading up to Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, with cover art by the award-winning artist and writer David Mack.
David Mack was nominated for an Emmy award for his illustration of the gorgeous opening sequence of Jessica Jones and is perhaps equally well known for his work on Kabuki, Daredevil, and American Gods. More on him and all the other contributors to the webcomic is to be found below.
The new webcomic details the events leading up to Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, and is thus of potential interest both to fans of Total War and fans of the period. The comic introduces all of the major players in Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, covering Dong Zhou consolidating his power, Cao Cao’s betrayal of Dong Zhou and subsequent narrow escape from Lu Bu, the beginnings of a coalition against Dong Zhou, and more, ending in the famous peach garden oath.
