Comic Review: Legends of Baldur’s Gate: Tyranny of Dragons #1

bg1

“Evil, meet my sword! Sword, meet evil! Generations have passed since the original Heroes of Baldur’s Gate saved the city and the Realms. Now a new threat rises and an unlikely group of misfits are thrust into adventure with MINSC, the legendary Ranger do-gooder with a heart of gold, brain of lead, and hamster of pronounced wisdom.”

I did a preview of this as soon as I found out about it, and I’m so excited that it’s finally here! The first character we’re introduced to is Delina, a wild mage moon elf who says, “I’m no damsel, y’ hear?!” almost immediately, so I was happy right from the start. The art style is detailed and falls more on the cartoony side of the spectrum. The panels are also well-lit, as odd as that might seem to say. It’s not very colorful, but it fits the mood well. Minsc is introduced in a way that I definitely wasn’t excpecting, and he’s in character but also confused. I’m very excited that this comic exists, and my only complaint is that I wish it was longer! The author’s note at the end makes it clear how much Jim Zub loves Dungeons and Dragons, which is great. I can’t wait for issue #2!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering – Boo is indeed present. YAY.
