The release of Call of Duty: Vanguard is just a few months away and while players get the chance to play the game during the second beta weekend, Sledgehammer Games has teased a comic book inspired by Vanguard's female protagonist, Lieutenant Polina Petrova.
A Call of Duty comic book may seem like a new concept but there have been many released alongside other titles. One of the most recent comics to release focused around Black Ops 4 and provided the backstory to several Specialists that were playable in the game's multiplayer. Here's what we know about Vanguard's comic books.

Sledgehammer Games teased the release of a comic on Twitter. The post revealed an image of Petrova holding her smoking sniper rifle surrounded by four dead bodies that seemingly failed to deal with the Soviet sharpshooter.
The writers of Vanguard will be hosting a panel at New York Comic-Con on October 10th, where they will be revealing other details about the comic. The panel is called "Navigating a Narrative Minefield: Writing a Call of Duty Story Across Video Games and Comics.”
There will be around four guests who will be addressing this topic and the attendees will get free issues of the comic which is sure to prove a popular release for fans of the franchise. Just like previous comics, it will be interesting to see whether the Vanguard comic will provide even more backstory to Petrova, who is based on Lyudmila Pavlichenko, a Red Army sniper with over 300 kills to her name. Call of Duty: Vanguard is scheduled to release on November 5th and it's expected that the comic will release at around the same time.
