|Winston's Journey to the West|
Description[edit | edit source]
In "Reflections," the holidays have arrived at Overwatch, and everybody is heading home to spend time with the ones closest to them. Meanwhile, a massive snowstorm has turned King's Row into a winter wonderland, catching Tracer in the middle of an important mission, while at Watchpoint: Gibraltar, Winston contemplates the past year and the one to come.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This is the first Overwatch comic to feature in some way all the heroes that were playable in the game at the time of publication.
- The comic was the first to show any of the playable characters being in a current romantic relationship, notably Tracer with her girlfriend Emily, and Torbjörn with Ingrid.
- Also, the comic confirmed Tracer being a lesbian, making her the first LGBT character in the playable cast.
- The comic was banned in Russia owing to its lesbian kiss, which violated Russian federal law.
- In response to a question about the children being read stories to by Reinhardt, the official Overwatch Twitter account stated that they are Torbjörn's. Michael Chu has since clarified that most of the children are actually Torbjörn's grandchildren.
