Dark Horse Announces New Minecraft OGN, Box Sets
Dark Horse has announced a new Minecraft original graphic novel by Stephanie Ramirez, Open World: Into the Nether, coming in October. And it's bringing with it two new box sets collecting past Dark Horse comics.
From the press release:
Minecraft: Open World—Into the Nether is a brand-new graphic novel exploring the Overworld. Sarah is new to the world of Minecraft, and without much knowledge of the world or how to play, she finds herself looking to veteran player Hector for help. Hector isn't used to exploring the Minecraft world with anyone other than his parents, so he's reluctant at first. However, Sarah's enthusiasm and all-around energy bring Hector around, and the two become partners—but more importantly, friends!
And on those box sets:
The Minecraft Boxed Set collects Minecraft Volumes 1-3 and includes an exclusive poster by Sarah Graley. In this series, Tyler's life is turned upside down when his family has to move away from his hometown. Thankfully, he has a strong group of friends forever linked in the world of Minecraft! Tyler, Evan, Candace, Tobi, and Grace spend their days going on countless adventures together in the expansive block world, always on the lookout for a new challenge. Along the way, monsters, pirates, bullies, and the dangers of the Nether will push them to the breaking point. But together, there's nothing these friends can't overcome!
The Minecraft: Wither Without You Boxed Set collects Minecraft: Wither Without You Volumes 1-3 and includes an exclusive poster by Kristen Gudsnuk. This series follows the lives of Cahira and Orion, twin monster hunters under the tutelage of Senan the Thorough. After an intense battle with an enchanted Wither, the two meet an unexpected and highly unusual ally: Atria, a girl cursed as a monster lure. To break her curse, the friends will traverse the length of the Overworld, facing dungeons, sorcerers, and even a zombie apocalypse! But what connection does Atria have to the mysterious Wither? And are the heroes a match for the powerful monster?

Damn, that was an easy article! Make all your press releases this meaty, Dark Horse! Now onto more important matters. Last night, we helped do tech support for Fortnite in the comments section of a Marvel article. Anyone got any Minecraft questions? We're kinda on a roll.
