Fiction Finder: Pathfinder Comics

Thursday, May 7, 2020

It is time to look at comics in our mini-series looking at our timeless Pathfinder fiction While the free web fiction, short fiction, and novels all have similar authors, the creatives involved in the comics have gone in other directions, including more focus on the Pathfinder Iconics!

The world of Pathfinder comes alive in comic books produced in cooperation with Dynamite Entertainment! Each issue contains 20+ pages of story, plus bonus material designed for use with the first edition of Pathfinder! Explore the backgrounds and personalities of iconic characters like Valeros and Seoni, visit the far-flung lands of the Lost Omens campaign setting, and throw dice in encounters inspired by the comic stories themselves with this exciting ongoing monthly series!

City of Secrets

The Pathfinder heroes head to the city of Magnimar, and danger isn't far behind. As the wizard Ezren seeks an audience with the Pathfinder Society, his adventuring allies explore the city's ancient magic, well-hidden secrets, and deep political divides. The dangers and opportunities of the big city could bring the adventurers closer together—or tear them apart!


Collections

Maybe you want to start here? Just spend $20–$30 bucks and get the whole series, one at a time!


Dark Waters Rising

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!


Hollow Mountain

An exciting new Pathfinder adventure begins! When an expedition into an ancient runelord stronghold meets with disaster, the Pathfinder heroes find themselves working together with some of the setting's most notorious villains in order to survive and locate a priceless magical item. But even with their own lives on the line, can an agent of the sinister Aspis Consortium ever really be trusted? Brave the fearsome monsters and deadly traps of Hollow Mountain in the first sword-swinging issue from Pathfinder co-creator James L. Sutter (Pathfinder Origins, Death's Heretic), with art from rising star Tom Garcia (Mercy Thompson). Contains pull-out poster map and official Pathfinder RPG bonus encounter!


Of Tooth and Claw

When Valeros and his companions are tasked with tracking down a mysterious beast scaring the locals of Sandpoint, they find far more than they bargained for! A seemingly simple monster hunt becomes a twisted tale of danger and betrayal as the Cult of Lamashtu exacts its revenge on our iconic heroes.


Origins

An exciting new Pathfinder adventure begins! To prove themselves to the Pathfinder Society, Valeros the fighter and his companions must recount tales of their early exploits in a world beset by magic and evil. In this issue, Valeros crosses swords with the brazen barbarian Amiri when both serve as hired guards escorting a doomed caravan through the treacherous Bloodsworn Vale. Sword and sorcery thrills from Pathfinder publisher Erik Mona (Pathfinder: Goblins!) and art from rising star Tom Garcia (Mercy Thompson)!


Goblins!

The goblins from Paizo's Pathfinder Roleplaying Game are pint-sized psychopaths, wreaking havoc across the land. Infamous for their unpredictable attacks, catchy raiding songs, hatred of dogs, and fear of horses, goblins blend mischief and murderousness like no other monsters. Collecting the entire Goblins comic book series, this fantastic collection includes an exclusive, eight-page bonus short story, as well as an extensive gallery of all cover illustrations and more than 20-pages of official Pathfinder Chronicles with world and character details (roleplaying game content, including gaming adventures and a fold-out map, perfect for miniatures)!


Runescars

An exciting new Pathfinder adventure begins! The Pathfinder heroes receive a desperate plea to unmask a killer stalking the chaos-gripped city of Korvosa. A new queen has ascended the city's Crimson Throne, and now deadly armored Hellknights and Gray Maidens clash in the streets. With the help of a cagey adventuring detective, the heroes race down the perilous trail of a brutal murderer-only to realize that the next target might be one of their own! Dare the magic and monsters of gothic Korvosa in the first sword-swinging issue from Pathfinder co-creator F. Wesley Schneider (Pathfinder Hollow Mountain, Bloodbound), with art from Ediano Silva (Grimm Fairy Tales, Hellchild: The Unholy). Contains pull-out poster map and official Pathfinder RPG bonus encounter!


Specials

Here you will find Worldscape Humble Bundle One-Shots and other special issues, still in stock!


Spiral of Bones

As the Pathfinders plunge into the history and mysteries below Kaer Maga—the no-holds-barred "City of Strangers"—Valeros plunges far deeper into the great beyond, defending his immortal soul in the courts of the dead! From Pathfinder author Crystal Frasier comes this scintillating tale of life, death, and what lingers when we're gone.


Bonus: Starfinder backup story! Thousands of years in Pathfinder's future, the Starfinder Society spreads adventure across the solar system! By Paizo Chief Creative Officer Erik Mona

Worldscape

The Pathfinders Valeros, Seoni, Kyra, and Merisiel are drawn into the interdimensional Worldscape, where the greatest warriors throughout the history of Barsoom, Golarion, and Earth clash in an ancient battle of life and death! Only the most dangerous among the combatants - a motley assortment which includes such legendary heroes as Red Sonja, John Carter and Tars Tarkas of Mars, the jungle adventurers Tarzan and Thun'da—have any hope of surviving the deadly gladiatorial pits and joining with the Pathfinder heroes in armed revolt against their oppressors!

Many of these issues are on sale. Some titles might not be available in print, but if digital comics are your thing, or you second-best thing, Diamond has them available on Comixology!

Next week we explore audio adventures!

Adventures Ahead!

Whatever did happen to this product line? Are there any further plans on continuing it?

I always did like the extra tidbits of content at the end of the comic.

We just had a very productive video call with the folks at Dynamite earlier in the week. We have nothing to announce at the moment, but should have something soon!

I used some of the material in the Runescars and Spiral of Bones series for my home campaign, also loved the 5' maps and got them laminated.

So which PaizoCon Online event would be the most banquet-equivalent place for an announcement?

We don't have a comic announcement this PaizoCon, unfortunately. We will have one soon, I promise! We just need to get all the cats in a row and herd a few more ducks before we can say anything.
