I picked up the first two issues last week and while I still don't like the artist much, it's fun to see the iconic characters from my RPG books walking around and talking. Some of the characterizations are as expected (Valeros the drunk), but for whatever reason I never pictured Seoni as the group's "grown-up", or Merisiel being quite so fond of carousing. I wish they hadn't made Kyra so grim and fervent; yes, she's a cleric, but Sarenrae looks like a goddess who enjoys a good time.

I've never really cared for the iconics, so havent really had an impression of their personalities from RPG supplements (I just skip over those bits, I think. I certainly dont notice them).

I've liked the interplay between the comic book characters (clunky and heavy handed as I guess it has to be in the first issue of anything) and enjoyed the story so far (my second issue hasnt yet arrived). I still dont really see the point of the iconics in the rest of the PF lines, but I'm looking forward to learning more about the half dozen or so I've met so far through the comic.

Still waiting on mine to arrive. :(

I would be interested but none of the iconics are interesting to me in any way. =/

Aside from the dreadful quality of the art and paper used for the comic, i really like the dialog and the plot. The first 2 points limit my enjoyment of the product a great deal.

I will stick for the first 10 numbers but if quality doesn't improve, i will let my subscription go.

Me neither but, for what it's worth, the PF game material is possibly worth $3 (depending on what you've already got, of course) Most of the non-comic material from issue #1 was repeated from material available elsewhere, but i believe the later issues are starting to get into a few pages of new Golarion lore (plus a map-pack page sized battlemat).

I am going to look at my comic again when I get back but the paper quality seems average of any comics I have ever owned. Including Marvel and DC. As for the art I think its a question of personal taste not quality.


So far, I really like the Pathfinder comic that is coming out. I have tried to get into the latest D&D comic, and it really doesn't do anything for me. I work at a comic book store part time, and get all of my comic book and rpg needs at 25% off. I like the comic so much, I would pay full price for it!

Not a fan of the art, but it's an enjoyable read.
