Overwatch comic tapestry creeps out for Halloween

That Mercy she gone crazy

Last year, Overwatch celebrated Halloween with a tie-in issue of its free digital comic, wherein Reinhardt regaled the crew with a creepy fireside tale of malevolent scientist Dr. Jamison Junkenstein and his monstrous creation.

This year, in alignment with the arena-shooter's ongoing Halloween Terror event, Blizzard have put out a single large tapestry, which itself is a prelude to the game's endless defence mode, Junkenstein's Revenge. The new comic speaks of the wicked doctor's fall from power, only to be replaced by an even bigger, even deadlier threat...

Super Adorable Witch Mercy.

The tapestry (which can be found here) is a brief 30-second read, but does feature some cool art, I especially love the shot of the heroes in their Halloween gear, readying for battle against the witch's army coming to beat down the castle door. The in-game endless mode itself is very good, but you really need a fully competent team of players, sporting well-matched heroes, if you hope to defy the odds.

The Overwatch Halloween Terror event runs until November 1.
