What's hiding beneath Gatshadow? The members of Vox Machina track the missing Grog back to his old home in Westruun, where he appears to have been drawn to the local cursed mountain. Of course, he has. Giant spiders, evil skeletons, and something even more nefarious stand in the unlikely heroes' way when they venture under the mountain to find their friend! From award-nominated writer Jody Houser (Orphan Black, Stranger Things) and first series author Olivia Samson, with colorist MSASSYK (Isola, Gotham Academy) and letterer Ariana Maher (James Bond, Xena)!

    But Why Tho? - Adrian Aug 14, 2019

    The threat to Grog may have more to it than meets the eye and we still have yet to meet Percival de Rolo (Taliesin Jaffe). I am excited to see the group grow to its final form as this story only takes place during the second session of their home game. This means there are many things that may be new for all readers in the future. As a side note, the cast read the first three pages of this issue at before their Talks Machina live show at SDCC 2019. Really fantastic to see the crew get back into their old characters if only for a moment. You can find it here. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Kate O'neil Aug 14, 2019

    With a new friend made, Vox Machina heads out to rescue their goliath friend from evil. Yet many questions still remain as to why he was targeted in the first place. Why target a dead goliath, and what brought Grog's father to that cave to begin with? When dealing with the undead you really can't be sure. The ominous foreshadowing of not all being right with their recovered friend means that the adventure will continue. Read Full Review
