Wildstorm Comics released preview scans of Starcraft # 5 and it doesn’t look good for the War Pigs. They land on Urona Sigma for clues on Jim Raynor’s location after hunting for him for weeks when suddenly they detect Sons of Korhal dropships.

When everything looked like they had the situation under control … yikes, zerglings, hydralisks and Ultralisks unburrow around the War Pigs, surrounding them.

On a zerg-infested world, the War Pigs come face-to-face with Jim Raynor, but it’s becoming painfully clear that nothing is what it seems, least of all the man who brought them back together for this do-or-die mission
