The warrior Valeros can rely on his sword arm and his friends—mysterious sorceress Seoni, quick-witted elven rogue Merisiel, powerful wizard Ezren, well-traveled dwarven ranger Harsk, and courageous cleric Kyra—but nothing can prepare him for the dangers that lurk ahead. The scattered goblin tribes of Varisia are unifying in ways no one has ever seen before. At the heart of this strange evolution is an ancient force of evil looking to establish itself anew in the world of Golarion!

Paizo's award-winning fantasy world, fiction line, and tabletop RPG is now the ultimate fantasy comic! With an action-packed story written by Jim Zub (Street Fighter Legends, Skullkickers) and incredibly detailed artwork by newcomer Andrew Huerta, this first volume introduces readers to a richly envisioned fantasy world filled with compelling characters and impressive sights.

  • Issues 1-6 of the hit series by Jim Zub and Andrew Huerta
  • The exclusive, never-before printed tale, "The Last Mosswood Goblin," by Jim Zub and Ivan Anaya
  • All 31 beautiful covers by Matteo Scalera, Lucio Parrillo, Erik Jones, Tyler Walpole & Dave Dorman
  • An introduction by Paizo Publisher Erik Mona
  • 42 pages of encounters, characters, and world detail for the Pathfinder RPG

Pretty friggin' good!

****( )

So, in my crusty old age, I hold off from buying single issues of comics.

And thus, it took me a while to get around to being aware of Paizo's venture into comic book territory.

The loss has been mine.

While the interior art is not always to my taste, it's not bad by any means, and the writing is actually pretty damn good.

My only real quibble with this first volume is that only the core cast seems really fleshed out in any measurable way- and frankly, given the medium, I'm probably being a bit unfair there.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story as presented, and, moreover, the supplemental gaming material means a lot more bang for my buck.

Congratulations to Paizo and Dynamite-I am onboard with following this series in my "collected editions preferred" fashion.


WOW!! Excellent quality plus huge bonus features

*****

Well i got it today and the quality is amazing. The hardcover, the paper used, the brightness and clarity of the ink... 6 amazing issues all in one volume. Right there its at least 4 or maybe even a 5 star, its that nice.

I had vaguely recalled some blurb about 'bonus material' when i ordered it but i was ordering it for the comics, not that stuff.

The bonus material is AMAZING, for both gamers and non gamers!

First off, its SIXTY PAGES of material. The comics end on page 161, the book ends on 221. Its a gigantic amount of material!

For non gamers - you have incredible quality prints of all the alternate covers, exclusive covers, some dramatic scenes from the episodes - art material lets call it.

For player gamers, it has tons of material and maps and player-oriented background material on the city of Sandpoint, then gorgeous full-page copies of all the iconic Pre-gens, focusing on art and writing. of course it has a nice stats block too, but you can find those anywhere. this being them to life, especially a 6-inch tall drawing of each.

Then for GMs it has a 2-3 page mini scenario for each major encounter from the comics (maybe 8-10 total) with a gridded map, monster tokens shown in place, stats for all that, and AGAIN, giant awesome art of the major villain of that chapter. hard to describe how much having a giant goblin looking at you revs the engine as you read about his camp.

A++. I am debating buying a copy for all my players about to run rise of the rune lords, as the comic would be an easy intro to the location and world, and its Sandpoint gazeteer with maps and major townsfolk roleplay material could be invaluable. But thats a chunk of change for 5 players lol.
