Guerrilla and Titan Comics are proud to announce a second arc in the smash-hit Horizon Zero Dawn comic book series, with the first issue hitting stores in July!

The new arc takes place during the events of the original game, and explores the never-before-told adventures of Aloy and Erend as they hunt for a killer with links to Erend’s past. As the pair fight off a series of deadly machine attacks, Erend reveals the sweeping tale of the liberation of Meridian — and how his sister, Ersa, Captain of the Carja Vanguard, was murdered.

Horizon Zero Dawn narrative director Ben McCaw and writer Anne Toole will be returning for this new story. Responding to the success of the first arc, McCaw states: “All of us who worked on the story – myself, Anne Toole, Annie Kitain, and Ari Martinez – feel humbled by the praise the series has received. During the writing process, we could only hope that fans would connect with the characters the same way we do, and it’s gratifying to hear that we succeeded.”

For the second arc, the critically acclaimed writing team will be joined by new series artist Elmer Damaso (Robotech Remix) and an eclectic lineup of variant cover artists including fan-favorites such as Peach Momoko (Captain Marvel, Spider-Gwen) and Harvey Tolibao (Uncanny X-Men, Green Arrow).

Horizon Zero Dawn: Liberation #1 will hit comic stores and digital devices on 28 July 2021 and will be available to pre-order from the Diamond Previews May catalog. For the latest news about the Horizon Zero Dawn comic series, be sure to follow Guerrilla on Twitter and Facebook!
