Story by Jim Zub
Interior Art by Leandro Oliveira.

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!

This issue marks the start of a new adventure series and is the perfect jumping on point for new readers. Come aboard and see why Pathfinder is the world's best-selling fantasy roleplaying game. Each issue of this exciting new series also includes an exclusive Pathfinder Roleplaying Game encounter and a bonus playable tactical map/art poster, bound in with each issue!

Red Sky at Night...

First, let me say thank you for bringing back the map! They were greatly missed and the $1 increase on price is worth it in my opinion. Second, I love Magnimar, much more so than Sandpoint. I will be on the lookout for Easter Eggs!

As for the comic itself, I’m excited that this first arc seems to be an adaptation of one my favorite Pathfinder modules. The BBEG in the module terrorizes my players to this day. It will be interesting to see where the writer takes the story.

Regarding the art, Leandro Oliveira does a superb job with the characters and the setting. The style is very detailed and while not as dynamic as Andrew Huerta’s art, it is still pleasing to the eye. The same cannot be said of Ross Campbell’s coloring. I’m not sure if it was just this comic, the process or what but I found the coloring to be boring, almost to the point of ruining Leandro’s efforts. The characters just seemed so lifeless. Here is to seeing a bit more vibrancy in the next issue!

Last, the dialog was hit or miss for me. Perhaps Jim Zub can read Douglas Adams, Judy Blume or Elmore Leonard for dialog tips. Regardless, there seemed to be little in the way of catchy conversations and even less characterizations. A great example of some truly unforgettable characters and witty dialog can be seen in Rat Queens, a dark fantasy comedy comic by Image of four drunken death-dealing female adventurers that would give Valeros a run for his coin!

Overall, I was happy with this issue and quibbles aside, even more excited to see where the story goes!

So... during the last series there was some talk of future maps making some sort of comeback. Will we be seeing the return of maps in any of this series, or has all that future map talk come to end? I have really missed the maps, they made the first series my favorite comic series ever, because my son and I could read the comic and then have a mini adventure. He and I were both let down with the second series' lack of maps. Although it helped that it was pretty much the same as the adventure in the P.F. Starter box. Please bring back the mini maps or even a more expensive version that has the map, I will gladly pay a bit more if I get a mini adventure and mini map.

The product description says:

"Each issue of this exciting new series also includes an exclusive Pathfinder Roleplaying Game encounter and a bonus playable tactical map/art poster, bound in with each issue!"

So it looks like it.

Sorry in my drunken dwarves haze I missed that. I guess that explains the one dollar increase, which I will gladly cough up. Plus when there are maps I buy way more copies of each issue than I do when there are no maps. Sorry for not reading the description well enough, but now it is settled for any other grouchy drunken dwarves who missed it like I did. A MILLION THANKS FOR BRINGING THE MAPS BACK. I promise to do my part to make it worth your time and cost.

Great to see the maps making a return! A $1 price increase is well worth it for the maps :)

The Genzoman cover is the A cover for the issue, which you can see here.


I'm really excited for this. I really enjoy the comics and I'm glad the maps are coming back. i hope they are city related!

Deluxe Comics subscribers will have this Paizo.com exclusive cover, plus the variations by Carlos Gomez, Genzoman, and Sean Izaakse.

Ok, so four total then. 7-12 had only three covers.

Will need to think on this.

Thanks Liz.

Is this the series with the Steve Ellis covers? (Steve's a friend of mine, and a player in my PFRPG game...)
