Good news, D&D fans! Dungeons & Dragons comics will be returning this April, according to writer Jim Zub:
I’m thrilled to announce that DUNGEONS & DRAGONS comics make their triumphant return in April and I’m writing the new series! The gang at Wizards of the Coast have been incredibly supportive and we have tons of great stuff planned. Make sure you pre-order it from your local comic retailer.
The first issue will be written by Jim Zub, who has also worked on Wayward and Samurai Jack, with art from Nelson Daniel, who’s worked on Judge Dredd; cover art will be provided by Max Dunbar. The variant cover will use “amazing Ravenloft art featuring Count Strahd von Zarovich.”
The story, as the solicitation for the first issue reveals, will focus on Minsc and Boo from the Baldur’s Gate video game series:
MINSC AND BOO ARE BACK and things have never looked more dire, as mysterious forces draw the legendary ranger and his crew of adventurers to RAVENLOFT, the Realm of Terror… where they find themselves face to face with undead horrors in the land of eternal night!
The first issue will be 40 pages long in full color, and retail for $4.99.
