STARCADIA QUEST Comics on way from IDW and CMON

CMON’s highly-anticipated tabletop game (and Kickstarter darling) Starcadia Quest will come to comics beginning in August, courtesy of IDW Publishing. The first-ever expansion of the Starcadia universe, this three-issue miniseries welcomes James Roberts – the fan-favorite and critically acclaimed writer of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye andLost Light – to craft a wild new adventure for Starkid and his Freelance Adventuring Crew.Illustrated by Aurelio Mazzara (Skylanders) and colored by David García Cruz, Starcadia Quest takes comic readers and game fans deep into the Frontier, where the toughest jobs in the galaxy are handled by Freelance Adventuring Crews. On his sixteenth birthday, the delivery boy known as Starkid sends out a call for the best recruits he can get… at his local Stardollars coffee shop. An action-packed and hilarious QWST begins!

As a special bonus, each issue of Starcadia Quest will be jam-packed with additional pages’ worth of exclusive playable content, allowing readers to incorporate the issue’s story elements into their tabletop gameplay!

Dungeons & Dragons Comic Book Series – New For 2019

The Forgotten Realms, the fantasy setting beloved by Dungeons & Dragons fans the world over, is the centerpiece for IDW’s all-new comic book miniseries, subtitled A Darkened Wish. Debuting in February 2019, the five-issue series will be written by B. Dave Walters with art by Tess Fowler.

In A Darkened Wish, years of hard-fought peace in the Sea of Swords are rent asunder, and legendary heroes must return to the region to defeat an unconceivable foe! Join Helene, a young wizard from the streets of Mintarn, and her friends as they grow from raw recruits to battle-honed warriors.

B. Dave Walters says, “I’ve been adventuring in the Forgotten Realms for a long time and having the honor of contributing to that world is incredibly exciting. I can’t wait to show the fans the power and intensity of a truly epic D&D story!”

“I have dreamed of making Dungeons & Dragons comics since I was twelve years old, but A Darkened Wish is beyond anything I could have hoped for,” says Tess Fowler. “Working with B. Dave Walters on this project is the coolest.”
