    http://comic.playoverwatch.com/en-us/zarya-searching

    Interesting little drop at the end there, with Sombra's name finally being revealed

    Wow, they hated Sombra enough to kill her off.

    No, their comics and their shorts are two different ways of telling the story.

    They don't make comics into shorts, nor shorts into comics.

    Zarya face at the end...spooky.
    So we now know Sombra's real name. It also looks like Zarya let her escape.

    Orisa and Alejandra ! <3
    If you have to attack a person instead of what they're saying, then you've already lost the argument.

    This deal with Sombra and her intentions is like the only interesting thing going on in the current timeline. Eventually, we might get to Overwatch reactivation stuff.

    My conspiracy theory on this:

    Sombra knew they were coming for her since Numbani.
    Zarya and Lynx were going house to house for days before Alejandra 'just happened' to show up at the bakery.
    She met them in a warehouse rigged to explode.

    Clearly Sombra set the meeting up, and keeps her leverage over Katya because Zarya no longer trusts her.

    I'm guessing when she hacked Lynx, she also made some 'alterations'.

    Her "real name" isn't perhaps her real name, the 'thing no one else had' was just the picture of her from Volskaya industries that they were showing around Dorado.

    I thought this comic sucked. No real insight into Zarya's character, and they did nothing with
    it that was particularly engaging. Very disappointed.

    They do a pretty good job of showing how much she hates omnics, and starts to question her decisions on them at the end as Lynx wasn't as bad as she believed all omnics to be.

    Which goes hand in hand with her conversations in game with Zenyatta, "You had better watch your back Omnic." Zenyatta, "And I will watch yours as well."
    If you push a button that finds you a 'random group' and it gives you a random group of people with random skill and random knowledge then you have no right to complain that a 'random group' button did what it was designed to do. The fault lies in your inability to make friends to play with instead of relying on a button designed to be random. It is a 'random group' button, not a 'best of the best' button.

    sounds like you expected it to be something its not.

    also this is the first ever comic depicting someone who has good reason to be prejudiced against omnics dealing with an intellectual omnic as well as depicting a overwatch character traveling the world.

    first of its kind, in the overwatch universe at least
    I grew up Horde, and as a proud orc shaman I cant understand these people. "ooh we blew up your city and killed everyone you care about but thats no reason to be angry" "oh we destroyed your entire country and murdered your son, but get over it" "Oh we invade foreign countries and melt, torture and mind control our victims but the Alliance were negligent and accidentally sent Tauren into dangerous territory. THEY are the evil ones" The players hate hypocrites more than murderers

    Yeah but is that all to her character? From what I gathered of that comic all she does is hate on Omnics. So
    does Torbjorn and Junkrat, but they have something else in their personality aside from that.

    I was expecting what every comic does, show you another side of their personality. Her being racist
    towards omnics isn't new, show me something else about her. How do the Russian people see her,
    what motivates her aside from whatever mission she's on?

    Quick cuts aren't engaging.

    its showing that she's starting to realize theres more to the situation than omnics vs humans and that omnics arent just machines.

    also its her first taste of something going on in the background which is manipulating international affairs.

    Also her prejudice totally ruined a potential lead right in the 1st page. That dude knew something and changed his mind when she insulted a member of his family in front of his kids

    She also learned that her leader was not the great person she thought she was, and that most of her ability to judge other peoples character was pretty much shit. I don't know what all you want from a comic that is 1/3rd the size of a regular comic. I get the feeling no matter what they did you wouldn't be happy.

    I wanted them to further expand either on her personal history, or another aspect of her
    personality that we don't really see much of in-game. So far, the comics have done that,
    more or less. This one didn't really do much with her imo.

    I get the feeling no matter what they did you wouldn't be happy.
    And you care why? I mean god forbid someone doesn't like something.

    A good catch actually, missed that the first time.

    Don't think it was a member of his family though, looks like a Ramen restaurant/shop. Probably just a dude who's fed up with Omnic hate, he's definitely angry after that.

    I don't care how you feel, nor does anyone else. This is however a discussion forum and if you make a statement someone will invariably make a response of what they think. That is the entire purpose of this website in its most basic form. If you can't handle responses from people who disagree with you then maybe you should avoid the internet entirely and just write messages to yourself in word.
    If you push a button that finds you a 'random group' and it gives you a random group of people with random skill and random knowledge then you have no right to complain that a 'random group' button did what it was designed to do.

    No it just cut away so we wouldn't get to see Zarya fucking her brains out before they both escaped.

    Or so the fan art tells me.

    It's not one of their strongest. Trouble is they're touching on some central mysteries that there's no way Blizzard is going to let them reveal in a webcomic so it's all tease no cock.

    Also the idea of Zarya in her combat harness lugging around that cannon while engaged in espionage is pretty hilarious.
