Gears of War: Hivebusters First Issue Available Now

In “Gears of War: Hivebusters,” writer Kurtis Wiebe (“Rise of RAAM”) teams up with artists Alan Quah (Dark Souls, Quake Champions) and Pierre Droal (for a cover variant) to explore a new side of the Gears universe in this five-part comic book series from IDW Publishing.

Set after the events of Gears of War 4, this comic book collection features a fearless team of COG soldiers – the Scorpio Squad – which consists of three brand-new characters in the Gears of War franchise; Mac, Lahni and Keegan. The three soldiers form a tactical COG unit that volunteers to get captured by the Swarm and transported to the heart of a Swarm hive with the mission to destroy it from within, or die trying.

“I think what will surprise people the most is how heartfelt this mini-series is,” says writer Kurtis Wiebe. “Alongside some amazing, brutal, bloody battles being realized by the amazing Alan Quah, I’ve been able to weave a shattering story of loss and grief. Gears of War has always balanced those aspects of storytelling really well, and for Gears fans, it will feel like home, but totally new.”
