A couple weeks ago, Blizzard teased that there are multiple Diablo projects in the works. One of those turned out to be Diablo III for the Nintendo Switch, as pretty much everybody expected, and there may even be a Diablo IV in the works, but how about in other media? Blizzard has announced that the dungeon-crawling franchise is getting its own four-part comic series that will release via comiXology. Check out the announcement post below.
