New York Comic Con ’12: Dark Horse & Dragon Age
For almost 3 years now, the popular Dragon Age games have been building quite the following, and things are sure to only increase with 2013′s Dragon Age III: Inquisition. But Dragon Age has expanded far beyond just video games, with novels, figures, animes, webseries, comics, table top gaming, and more. So how does one keep up with the vast universe of Dragon Age that is now spread over so many mediums? How about a vastly detailed Encyclopedia/Art Book? Well, thanks to the fine folks at Dark Horse and the game’s developers at BioWare, fans will have the chance to purchase just that! On sale April 3 of 2013, Dragon Age: The World of Thedas Volume 1 will be a heavily illustrated collection of art and information about the fan favorite video game. Designed and illustrated with hundreds of pieces of lush art from the creators of the games, Dragon Age: The World of Thedas vol.1 will be the definitive guide to BioWare’s dark fantasy masterpiece. For Dragon Age newcomers, this comprehensive volume will bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about Dragon Age’s regions, religions, monsters, magic, and more. But if you are one of the more dedicated fans, heavily knowledged in the world of Thedas, than look forward to enjoying never before seen secrets of BioWare’s epic fantasy. This first volume of Dragon Age art and information is filled to the brim with never-before-seen art by the creators of the games, and this dramatic, yet accessible, tome illuminates the world from the darkest corners of the Deep Roads to the most illusory reaches of the Fade, taking readers on a journey through one of the most fully realized fantasy universes of the past few years.
But that is not all Dark Horse will be offering fans of Dragon Age next year, as the company has also announced a brand new Dragon Age comic series plotted by David Gaider, the lead writer of the Dragon Age games. Dragon Age: Until We Sleep is a brand new mini-series that takes three of the games’ most beloved characters and put them on a quest into the realm of nightmares, demons, and magic. King Alistair, allied with the world’s most feared warrior race—the Qunari—the pirate Isabela, and the rogue Varric, brings a battle royal to the evil mage responsible for his father’s disappearance. Until We Sleep‘s scripts will be handled by Alexander Freed, with art by Chad Hardin, and is an essential addition to the Dragon Age canon. Filled with heart-stopping action in jaw-dropping settings, Dark Horse claims Until We Sleep will contain everything fans love about fantasy. So whether you’re a longtime Dragon Age fan or a newcomer, this sounds like it will be the beginning of an epic drama, not to be missed. You can pick up issue #1 of Dragon Age: Until We Sleep when it hits stores March 27th, 2013. Until then, check out the cover for issue #1 below.
