    While well-crafted, this comic is unlikely to win over anyone who is not already a fan of the genre. Still, it stands as a fine example of a high-quality fantasy comic series. So sword-and-sorcery enthusiasts as well as comic-reading role-players would do well to give Pathfinder: Origins a try. Read Full Review

    Pathfinders: Origins#1 is, overall, a very nice read. Story and art mesh to form a very enjoyable story, and the creators come together to present a well put together first issue. Although the release presents nothing new, or groundbreaking, it's a heck of a lot of fun. Both creators take the time to go theextra mile, and deliver a story that will stick with readers, and that bodes well for the rest of the series. The series could be something special, if it continues to build on this rock-solid first release, and fix some of the minor flaws in the presentation. A series I will happily be following, and one I would recommend picking up. Happy reading! Read Full Review

    High quality writing and lovely artwork make the first issue of this new series more than just a RPG tie-in. Read Full Review

    I would pass on Origins unless you already love Pathfinder and these characters and want to keep your collection complete. Perhaps the main series is far more engaging and avoids the pitfalls of this first issue. While I'll admit my own experience with the property is limited from what I've seen with this Originsissue I'm not missing much. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Feb 18, 2015

    Pathfinder: Origins #1 struggles to find its footing, being encumbered with a lot of exposition in both narrative and dialogue. The main character is rather weak and one-dimensional although Amiri is a bright spot challenging those above her with her ambition. The artwork is underwhelming especially in the action sequences where characters would appear and disappear in order to have the fight work in the favor of the heroes. However, Garcia does capture the rich world with numerous backdrops. The plot is also one-dimensional and the twists are seen from 30,000 feet in the air. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Feb 24, 2015

    Not something that I would want to read, given the kind of writing we had here. This was pretty much a boring RPG story about fighting demons and little else. Read Full Review
