Fans of League of Legends' lore are in for a rare treat come next May. Today, it was revealed that Riot games is taking a step into the real world of comics. In fact, the company has partnered with comics behemoth Marvel to create a graphic novel based on the video game -- titled League of Legends: Ashe Warmother.

The comic, featuring one of the original lineup of League heroes, will come out some time next May, and tells the story of her life in Freljord.

This is a truly collaborative effort on the part of the two companies as Odin Austin Shafer, League's senior narrative designer, will pen the story. Nina Vakueva -- known for "Heavy Vinyl" -- will be working on the art.

News of the collaboration comes via The Verge, who not only have a sample of the comic's cover art, but also spoke with Riot's Head of Creative Development, Greg Street. Street informed them that Riot "see[s] similarities between the League of Legends Universe and the Marvel Universe," due to both of them having a diverse group of characters.

This won't be the last of Riot's efforts to tell stories about their characters. According to Street, the company wants to offer players detailed origin stories as well as stories that add to their narrative. They also plan to continue dabbling in alternative universe stories for some of their characters.
