Overwatch Digital Comic Banned in Russia


The new issue of Blizzard’s Overwatch digital comic, which features the surprising revelation that the character Tracer is gay, has been banned in the Russian federation.

Kotaku reported today that Russian federation fans can see the cover, but cannot click through. They are instead redirected to a warning which states that the comic isn’t available “in accordance with Russian law.”
