Dark Horse Comics and Borealys Games have teamed up to bring the Mages of Mystralia webcomic to graphic novel format, arriving in bookstores and shops in January 2018.The webcomic ties into a game of the same name that has been recently released.
Fantasy author Ed Greenwood wrote the Mages of Mystralia storyline for the game while writer Brian Clevinger and artist Carey Pietsch brought in the lore from the game when creating the webcomic.
Borealys Games President Louis-Félix Cauchon says:
When we started working with Ed Greenwood, we only expected him to put together a story for our game. But he put together such a rich world with its own history that we felt it would be a waste not to tell that story as well. Brian and Carey brought that storyline to life through their artistry and mastery of the comics format.
Mike Richardson, founder and President of Dark Horse Comics, adds:
I rarely see such original and compelling material come across my desk. The fact that readers will be able to explore this new “universe” at the same time the game is released makes the experience all the more exciting. I’m very excited to see where Mages of Mystralia will take us in the coming years.
The 64-page Mages of Mystralia webcomic is available for free at borealysgames.com/comic , but the graphic novel will include concept art from the game and bonus material. The game is currently available with the graphic novel arriving in shops in early 2018.
