IDW are giving readers even more Dungeons & Dragons action with the announcement of Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides from acclaimed Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur’s Gate creative team of writer Jim Zub and artist Max Dunbar, with a cast of familiar characters from previous series.
In Infernal Tides, fan-favorite Minsc and his friends are caught in the middle of devil-tainted corruption that has taken hold of Baldur’s Gate. Unravelling the secret of its source will take the heroes to unexpected places and threaten the sanctity of their very souls. Even if they survive this perilous journey, there will be Hell to pay!
Zub, a big D&D fan, and seems more than thrilled to be on this particular gig:
Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides is a wild ride through some of my favorite parts of D&D lore. Getting the chance to help develop the story and setting for a brand new D&D sourcebook directly with the D&D team, having Max Dunbar contribute key concept art to that adventure, and then getting both of us back at IDW to create a brand new comic story that propels Minsc and the rest of the Baldur’s Gate heroes into the same kind of devilish danger is an absolute dream come true. This comic is going to be pure D&D-fueled adrenalin. I can’t wait for readers to see how it all rolls out.
He’s not the only one stoked for this new series. Here’s partner-in-crime, Max Dunbar’s thoughts on this new project:
I am so thrilled to be able to return to D&D comics with Jim Zub in Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides. This story plunges our Heroes of Baldur’s Gate into an adventure of a scope and scale we haven’t seen yet in these comics. We’ll dive into the heart of locations and events that are absolutely legendary to D&D. I feel incredibly lucky to be working with Jim Zub, incredible colorist Sebastian Cheng, IDW, and Wizards of the Coast on this vast and diabolical story!
Excited? Then maybe look out for Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides #1 this September 17th from IDW.
