Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo Publishing continue working together on a new Pathfinder adventure comic series. Pathfinder: Spiral of Bones will be written by Crystal Frasier, best known for her work as writer, developer, and graphic designer on the Pathfinder line of roleplaying games. She will be joined by artist Tom Garcia (Pathfinder: Hollow Mountain, Pathfinder: Origins) for the upcoming March 2018 release.
The synopsis for the series reads:
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.
Writer Crystal Frasier says:
I'm really excited to write for mainstream comics after writing fiction and gaming material for so long. I've been working with these character for almost a decade, and I'm positively giddy to see them brought to life the way Tom portrays them-lively and expressive and individual. I'm especially excited to get to focus on Valeros. He ends up the butt of jokes pretty often, but he's just a guy trying to do his best for his friends and usually feeling like he's jumped in way over his head. I can relate to that. Now we get a chance to see what makes him tick and what makes him special beyond his sword arm, iron liver, and animal magnetism.
In 2012, Dynamite partnered with Paizo, securing the rights to produce the first series of Pathfinder comics based on the massively popular RPG franchise. The first series, simply entitled Pathfinder: Dark Waters Rising launched later that same year to widespread critical acclaim allowing for further entries into the Pathfinder universe. Subsequent story arcs and mini-series include Of Tooth and Claw, Night on the Town, City of Secrets, Hollow Mountain, Runescars, Worldscape, Goblins, and Origins.
The debut issue of Pathfinder: Spiral of Bones features covers by Marco Santucci (Tekken: Blood Feud, Assassin's Creed: Uprising), Diego Galindo (Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Dog Men, Unleash), Jonathan Lau (Agent 47: Birth of the Hitman, Pathfinder: Runescars and Worldscape), and Jen Vaughn (Cartozia Tales, Adventure Time).
Pathfinder: Spiral of Bones #1 will be solicited in the January 2018 Previews catalog and slated for release in March.
