The cover of the first issue

New Blood is an five issue Overwatch comic series, focusing on Cole Cassidy, who goes on a mission to recruiting allies to join the ranks of Overwatch.

The series coincides with "Cassidy's New Blood Challenge."[1]

The series was originally planned to release in September, 2021, as a narrative arc for then-named Jesse McCree. Given the renaming of the character, the series was postponed, and Malevento pushed ahead to cover its release window.[2]
