When Valeros and his companions are tasked with tracking down a mysterious beast scaring the locals of Sandpoint, they find far more than they bargained for! A seemingly simple monster hunt becomes a twisted tale of danger and betrayal as the Cult of Lamashtu exacts its revenge on our iconic heroes. Paizo's award-winning tabletop RPG, fiction line, and card game is the ultimate fantasy comic! With an action-packed story written by Jim Zub (Samurai Jack, Skullkickers) and lavish artwork by newcomers Sean Izaakse and Ivan Anaya, this second volume continues the thrilling adventures of the Pathfinder iconic characters in the richly envisioned fantasy world of Golarion. This beautiful, oversized RPG-sized hardcover collects issues #7-12 of the comic series along with the 2014 Pathfinder Special, and includes 28 pages of encounters, characters, and world detail for the Pathfinder RPG, including a brand-new poster map!

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jun 4, 2014

    The cover here is by Genzoman, and unfortunately, it makes my case for me as far as the internal art is concerned, which is done by Leandro Oliviera. And the problem is that the characters have unrealistic dimensions. I mean, just look at Seoni's arms and torso compared to her massive legs and her humongous boot. It is just not natural. In the internal artwork, this problem pipes up again and again and goes for all the heroes. It is distracting and takes away from the entire experience. However, the colours were quite nicely done, handled by Ross Campbell. There's a bit of overall roughness to the artwork but since the cliffhanger was a good one, I didn't mind these deficiencies all that much, though I would love to see improvements over the next couple issues.

    Overall, if youre an existing fan, I imagine theres some kicks to be had here, but for the clueless majority, its not much fun, and doesnt really compel you to go and fill in the blanks either. Kind of like joining a long-running roleplaying group as a new player – you can tell theyre having a whale of a time, but their in-jokes and pre-existing banter end up immediately alienating you. I kinda want to go join those girls playing Rat Queens. That looks like fun… Read Full Review
