Just announced today by Dark Horse Comics, we are getting a new Critical Role comic series.
This one is taking us inside the adventures of The Mighty Nein. They’re the focus of the current Campaign Two. The difference between these and the Vox Machina comics: these stories will be graphic novels.
These will also be releasing every month, with this first two releasing in both June and July 2021. The first two stories will be taking us through the backstories of both Jester and Caleb.
Jester Lavorre had an unconventional upbringing even for one born in cosmopolitan Nicodranas. Daughter of the famed Ruby of the Sea, she had many opportunities for mischief as a small child, of which she took full advantage! Dive into the mystery of Jester’s early years, her first meeting with the Traveler, and the fateful events that set her on a path to eventually join the Mighty Nein.
Sam Maggs is writing the text. Hunter Severn Bonyun did the line art. Finally, Cathy Le filled in all the colors.
In Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins: Caleb Widogast, Bren Aldric Ermendrud is chosen to attend the exclusive Soltryce Academy, preparing for an important future in service to the Empire. But nobody — least of all Bren himself — can foresee the cruelty he will endure, and the ways in which it will break and remake him. Witness the events that transform Bren into the Mighty Nein’s Caleb Widogast, and how they inform the path he’ll take in the future.
Vox Machina Origins writer Jody Houser wrote this one. Selina Espiritu did the line art. Rounding it out, Diana Sousa handled the colors.
Artist for Vox Machina Origins Ariana Maher is doing the art for all of these graphic novels. And the cast will each be working with the creative team for their character’s individual stories.
I can’t wait to read these pre-Campaign two stories.
