StarCraft: Frontline: Volume 1 is the first graphic novel in the three-part StarCraft: Frontline series.

The Journey, a story in Warcraft: Legends, Volume 1, was previewed in Frontline: Volume 1.

Cryptozoic now sells the graphic novel electronically through the Cryptozoic Comics App.[1]


The world of StarCraft comes alive in this new anthology! In a story by Richard Knaak, a Thor driver's ego leads him and two partners to try to pull off a heist in the middle of a war zone. A Viking pilot must battle his mentor for the lives of an entire colony, and a Terran mining colony is overrun by the Zerg, but what should the marines and miners who remain do with the cause of this invasion… a psionic six-year-old child.


StarCraft: Frontline: Volume 1 includes four stories.
