League of Legends is loved by many gamers not only for its gameplay but also for its unique champions and their interesting backstory. These backstories are often featured in comics which are illustrated by different talented artists. That said, here are some of our favorite picks:
Poppy: A Hero’s Calling

Darius: Blood of Noxus
Blood of Noxus is probably one of my favorite comics. The comic gives fans a glimpse into Darius’ backstory, and how he became a Noxian soldier. We also get to see him fall in love with his childhood friend, Quilletta. The art was done by Sana Takeda who has also drawn for issues of Ms. Marvel and X-23.
