Friday's Headlines | IDW Publishing News

Return to Sera this March as IDW Publishing is releasing a new Gears of War title with the Coalition and Microsoft Studios. In this new five-issue series subtitled Hivebusters, a new squad has been sent to bust a Swarm hive on the remote island of Pahunu. This isn't any normal mission however, as this is the Swam that decimated one of the team's hometown settlement.

Rise of RAAM writer Kurtis Wiebe returns for Gears of War: Hivebusters, joined by Dark Souls artist Alan Quah.

“I'm really happy to be back on this new arc for Gears of War,” Wiebe said. “We’re taking the story back to the human side with three new characters that I’ve played a major role in developing. Even with all the blood and violence, I’m weaving a heartfelt story around our three main heroes: Mac, Lahni, and Keegan. I can’t wait for it to hit stores in 2019!”
