Sneak Peek of Pathfinder Comics #1
The New Pathfinder Comic Book Series – Sneak Peak
There is a new sneak peak of the 1 st issue of the new Pathfinder Comic at Bleeding Cool. The new comic is due to be released this August – sometime around Gencon. To be published by Dynamite, Issue #1 of the new Pathfinder comic promises character profiles, game stats, a pull-out map and a poster, too! The new series, to be written by Jim Zubkavich sounds pretty cool. Moreover, it looks pretty cool, too.
It also looks pretty violent and is not shying away from an adult theme and feel, which is a refreshing change from my perspective.
There are few story details available right now, but the first 40 page issue will be set in Varisia with the "iconic heroes" battling goblins and their evil mastermind pulling the strings. The initial arc is expected to last at least six issues, and then I guess Dynamite will see if they want to continue with the series further.
The pull-out map and poster in Issue #1 sounds like an especially cool bit of promotional SWAG. Well, it's SWAG for those of us who pick up the new Pathfinder comic, that is. I admit I was on the fence, but the words "pull-out map" were enough to grab my undivided attention immediately!
[UPDATED] Paizo has announced more details on the forthcoming Pathfinder Comic Book Series HERE.
"The iconic heroes at the core of the Pathfinder's world are brought to life for the first time in a brand new story full of charm and high adventure that will please fans and entertain new readers alike. Issue 1 clocks in at 40 pages (and remains $3.99) and includes over 10 pages of character profiles and Pathfinder RPG game statistics, plus an EXCLUSIVE removable, playable tactical map and poster. Be sure to pick up Pathfinder #1 from Dynamite, coming this August to comic stores everywhere!
In issue #1, 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."
