WaywardLaunchParty

On Wednesday WAYWARD #1 arrives at comic shops everywhere and Wednesday night we’re throwing an official launch party here in Toronto!

WAYWARD LAUNCH PARTY
WED AUGUST 27th
at GUU SAKABAR
559 Bloor Street West, Toronto
6-8pm (presentation at 7pm)

I’ll be there along with cover artists Alina Urusov, Adam Warren, Kalman Andrasofszky, and Chip Zdarsky. It will probably be the only place where you’ll be able to pick up every variant cover for the first issue (along with a super rare Japanese language doujinshi version and a special cover postcard set) and get them signed at the same time.

Guu Sakabar is an award-winning Japanese izakaya with fantastic food and drink. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I’m absolutely thrilled to be celebrating the launch there with my dear friends from The Beguiling.

So happy to finally announce this:

D&DLBG01D&DLBG01sub

I’m writing a new comic series called Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur’s Gate that launches in October and includes fan favorite characters Minsc and Boo from the Baldur’s Gate video game series!

Pop culture site ICV2 broke the news yesterday and has an exclusive interview with me all about it as well as some general information and cover art.

Anyone who knows my work knows how big a role tabletop RPGs in general, and D&D specifically, played in my development as a storyteller. To be able to contribute a new Dungeons & Dragons story on the 40th anniversary of the game while a new edition launches, it’s an incredible honor. Special thanks to Ted Adams, John Barber, Mike Mearls, Greg Bilsland, and Hilary Ross for their help in making this project a reality.

Obviously I’ll post more info as it comes available. In the meantime, please help spread the word to your gaming friends near and far. D&D: Legends of Baldur’s Gate arrives in October but it’s available for pre-order now from your local comic shop.

Here’s the official Press Release:

JIM ZUB GOES FOR THE EYES WITH DUNGEONS & DRAGONS
ON A BRAND NEW JOURNEY THIS FALL!

Dungeons & Dragons takes adventuring to the next level this year with a brand new comic from IDW Publishing, Legends of Baldur’s Gate. The series—which ties in to Wizards of the Coast’s massive Tyranny of Dragons event—comes smashing into stores this fall with a tried-and-true team of questers.

With a battle-proven track record on series like Skullkickers and IDW’s own Samurai JackJim Zub leads this all-new comic series into battle with variant cover and interior artist Max Dunbar (Red Sonja: Atlantis Rises) and breakout The Transformers: Windblade artist Sarah Stone who provides the standard-order covers for the series.

“I didn’t know it at the time, but playing Dungeons & Dragons as a kid was the foundation of my creative career,” said Zub. “It ignited a desire in me to build memorable characters and weave entertaining tales of high adventure. Getting a chance to tell new Forgotten Realms stories as part of the D&D 40th anniversary is an absolute dream come true.”

The legends of the past still resonate with the modern heroes of Baldur’s Gate, and when a new threat rises, an unlikely trio takes upon themselves the mantle of heroes! Launching alongside Wizards of the Coast’s next edition of the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop RPG, the new series will feature both familiar and new characters—including the return of the fan-favorite ranger, Minsc—and his hamster, Boo!

“We wanted to tell the Tyranny of Dragons story in lots of ways, and Jim Zub and IDW have done a great job bringing our story to life for comics fans. They've brought fan favorites Minsc and Boo back into action, and this story is a great way to help us celebrate an amazing year for Dungeons & Dragons,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director at Wizards of the Coast.

Legends of Baldur’s Gate sets off for adventure this October with a Tyranny of Dragons story—don’t miss out on the most epic quest of the year!
