While each issue may focus on two Legends, fans can be sure all of their favorites will show up in one form or another, with Revenant clearly shown on the cover of issue #1.
Whether or not the series will tie into the in-game Legacy Antigen comics has yet to be seen.

Apex Legends: Overtime #1
The first issue of Apex Legends: Overtime finds Mirage and Crypto having to deal with Revenant after an embarrassing loss in the Apex Games.
They encounter the assassin while on the way to meet one of Crypto's contacts who can help clear up his identity problems.
The artwork in this issue is great, though the writing is a bit simplistic.
It is too early to tell how good the overall series will be, as the first issue of any new series is more about setup than anything else.
Still, it is great to see more Apex love out there in the world.
