You may have heard of Pathfinder, a tabletop role playing game that's on par with Dungeons and Dragons in terms of popularity, also sporting a massively multiplayer online version of the game as well – not to mention toys and novels and all sorts of goodies.
Guess what? Now it's got comics. Dynamite Entertainment will be publishing Pathfinder comics this year, having licensed the rights from Paizo Publishing. No word on creators yet, but here are some happy press-release style blurbs!
"We are thrilled to be working with Dynamite on a new Pathfinder comic!" said Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. "Dynamite's proven record with licensed properties and their ability to attract top creative talent to their books make them a natural fit for Pathfinder, and we can't wait to see how they explore the Pathfinder world!"
"When we sat down and first started speaking with Paizo, the excitement that Erik had for Pathfinder was amazing, and the success he and his team have had is well earned," adds Dynamite Publisher Nick Barrucci. "We're proud to be working with them to help bring Pathfinder to the comics market, and to bring our comics to their market. It's the best of both worlds. This is the start of a great working relationship."
