Overwatch's Gunslinger McCree Stars In His Own Comic From Blizzard

Blizzard Entertainment digitally published the Overwatch comic Train Hopper, which you can read here online for free.

The comic centers on gunslinger Jesse McCree from Overwatch. Blizzard describes the plot as McCree hitching "a ride on a hypertrain to Houston in the hopes of skipping town and laying low for a while. But soon after the engine starts, he realizes his trip is going to be anything but 'low profile.'"

The comic is written by Blizzard's Robert Brooks and illustrated by artist Bengal (who worked on comics such as Spider-Gwen, All-New Wolverine, and Batgirl). It's short and just 10 pages in length, but Blizzard teased that more Overwatch comics will arrive soon.
