Before Baldur’s Gate III is released, publisher IDW will reveal what’s been happening to its heroes in Dungeons & Dragons: Mindbreaker. The story, which will be told over five issues, is both a prequel to Baldur’s Gate III and a sequel to Baldur’s Gate II.
Adventurers Krydle, Shandie, Delina, Nerys, Minsc, and Boo all star in the untold adventure, written by author Jim Zub and artist Eduardo Mello. Zub has been here before, having written five previous D&D comic miniseries that take place in or around Baldur’s Gate: Legends of Baldur’s Gate, Shadows of the Vampire, Frost Giant’s Fury, Evil at Baldur’s Gate, and Infernal Tides.
“Our Baldur’s Gate heroes have traveled to remote parts of the Realms, tumbled through the Demiplane of Dread, been exiled to Hell, and somehow made it back alive,” Zub teases. “Now they’re home in Baldur’s Gate and the threat that’s arrived on their doorstep is far greater than any of them could have imagined. Mindbreaker is D&D on a grand scale, jam-packed with action and adventure. It pays off a bunch of elements introduced in earlier D&D miniseries and foreshadows the dark forces that rise to prominence in Baldur’s Gate III. I can’t wait for readers to see how it all plays out!”
Unfortunately some waiting IS involved; the first issue of Dungeons & Dragons: Mindbreaker won’t be out until this fall. When it appears, it’ll come with your choice of three variant covers, painted up by Max Dunbar, Max Davenport and Celia Lowenthal respectively.
