Pathfinder #1 Preview: RPG to Comics
We told you about the big-time RPG/MMORPG known as Pathfinder coming to Dynamite Comics earlier this year. Well, now, we've got creators to name and preview art to show, so check this out.
Pathfinder #1 will be written by Jim Zubkavich, with art from Andrew Huerta, and it'll bring you 40 pages of sword-wielding entertainment, including a poster and 10 pages of character profiles so that you'll know the who's-who even if you've never played the game before. If you're big on the game already, those 10 pages will also have character statistics as well as an exclusive playable tactical battle map.
Here's the synopsis blurb:
Valeros can rely on only his sword arm and his friends, the mysterious and beautiful sorcerer Seoni and silver tongued quick-witted elven rogue Merisiel, but nothing can prepare him for the dangers that lurk ahead. The scattered and chaotic goblin tribes of Varisia are changing, growing in power and unifying in ways no one has ever seen before. At the heart of this strange evolution is an ancient evil looking to establish itself anew.
"Pathfinder has blazed new trails in gaming and fiction, winning over thousands of fans all over the world. I'm absolutely thrilled to add to its mythology and flesh out the iconic characters at the heart of the Galorion world," says Zubkavich. "Sword and sorcery adventure pumps through my veins and I can't wait for readers to experience what Dynamite and I have planned."
Erik Mona of Paizo, publishers of Pathfinder games, are stoked as well. "I am thrilled with the work Jim Zub and Andrew Huerta have put into the Pathfinder comic book. Jim and I go way back to my time as Editor-in-Chief of Dragon Magazine, and his experience with fantasy and gaming make him the perfect writer for the series. Andrew's pencils are absolutely amazing, and bring an exciting and fresh new look to the characters, monsters, and lands of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game."
