A quick recap about the upcoming Zed comic – what we know and what the can expect

So, maybe you already have seen the cover of the upcoming Zed comic in the 10th Anniversary stream. https://imgur.com/a/AVXbzUc With the comic on the horizon, I thought it would be a good idea to make a post about all the things we already know about the comic. **The author** ~~of the journals~~ For the people who don’t know the author of the Zed comic is, it is Odin Schafer, better known as WAAARGHbobo. He also wrote Warmother and is one of the most active Riot narrative folk on the SA&S Boards. > There are two other series, in early production. Hopefully the second series will launch roughly when Ashe: Warmother ends. John O'brian is writing the second series. I wrote the third. We won't be back in the Freljord till after then... but hopefully if this series does well we will be able to return after that. [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/luKNAK3m-ashe-warmother-issue-1-avail-nows?comment=000c0000) Anyway, let’s begin to analysis the cover and what it means. **The characters of the comic** So the look on the cover shows us Zed (surprise), Jhin’s mask, which we can assume is the assassin Zed is after, Akali, Shen, a new person which name is Jovn Tau and probably Kayn which can’t really see here since the cover is cut off. The cover also fits with the information we got from Odin as well. > […] > The Zed comic is, not surprisingly, hyper-focused on Zed. But I will say Zed, Kayn, Akali, Shen, Jovn Tau, and Jhin are all on the cover... > […] [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/XV5NT7wn-could-shen-and-zed-actually-catch-jhin?comment=0002) Okay let’s talk about the elephant in the room – Zed’s face reveal. While I’m not against it per se, revealing it on the cover feels incredible anticlimax for me. Not considering I’m really not happy with his face itself, especially his white hair. It looks like something I would expect from a fan artist and not from an official Riot work because the design itself feels to uninspired to be Zed for me. Also, he is missing [his shadow magic tattoos](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/champion/zed/) which is a shame because already saw his tattoos in the shown concept arts from the[ /Dev video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqRxNzp9yCI) earlier this year. https://imgur.com/a/7MG3fuA **The length of the comic** The “1 of 6” means we get 6 issues instead of 5 like the Lux comic. Odin mentioned this a while ago while writing the script. One more issue means one issue more content and I doubt anyone will complain about it. > […] > Zed is spinning up production soon... and I'm not allowed to say much about him. I can say he has 6 scripts done, and first script is locked (I.e. ready for the artist). > […] [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/qabiFIYq-how-it-can-be-that-we-still-have-no-further-information-regarding-the-upcoming-comics?comment=00040003) **The (main focus of the) story** I just add a few comments which made Odin about the comic. > […] > 1) yeah obviously. Lux is next. Then maybe the Zed thing I wrote. (I'm not sure if that is going forward at this point) I can't speak for the Lux comic, but the Zed lets the reader take a deep dive into who he is-- but also what Ionia is like. > […] [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/oT3p6ZRy-ashe-warmother-issue-4-available-now-in-special-addition-or-free?comment=000400000000000000000000) > It does contain flashback _scenes_ as typical comic readers and most league players don’t actually know who Zed is, why he fights, or even why he and Shen have beef. (The boards users’ knowledge level is much higher than the average joes—actually most league players knowledge of lore comes **only** from VO) > Like the Lux comic, the Zed comic starts in the recent past, but will begin advancing the timeline around its midpoint. But even in this recent past, for the people that already know Zed, Shen, and Jhin’s lores there’s a lot of new stuff you will discover.

But I will say Zed, Kayn, Akali, Shen, Jovn Tau, and Jhin are all on the cover... > And it’s coming soon. > I will say there’s a couple of big misdirections in that old Jhin story. I’m not gonna say what —but that story is gonna go down... and not in the way you might think. > […] [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/XV5NT7wn-could-shen-and-zed-actually-catch-jhin?comment=0002) **Release date** The release date is in November since it got postponed because of the 10th Anniversary. > “I think it was gonna be this month but with the massive amount of stuff for the ten year anniversary. It was pushed to Nov.” -said man [Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/xtlxU7oA-when-is-the-zed-comic-coming-out?comment=0001) Edit: >I was told the 10th anniversary book would effect our publish date. Not the anniversary itself. (I clarified that in a post after the first.). I wasn’t clear enough on my first post. Brevity is sometimes the enemy of clarity. My bad. [Odin's answer in this theard](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/765RkwlE-a-quick-recap-about-the-upcoming-zed-comic-what-we-know-and-what-the-can-expect?comment=0007) Consider the former releases always have been on the second Wednesday of every month, we would expect the comic to drop on the 13th November. **However**, since at this day both Realms of Runeterra and the physical edition of the Lux comic will come out and the comic is not available to preorder on Marvel Comics online nor Comixology yet, we can assume it will drop a month later on the **11th December**. Anyway, that’s everything I think should be said to the upcoming comic. Are y’all as excited as I’m for the release?
