Minsc the Mighty-Evil Beware! The Baldur's Gate heroes return to the city at last, but their time adventuring in Ravenloft and the frozen northern reaches of the Realms has changed them. Each of them must face great trials ahead before they'll be ready to embrace their destiny.
A new hero of the people roams the streets of Baldur's Gate, and Minsc feels left behind despite his own legend. Can he reclaim his place as the city's Beloved Ranger? Whatever happens, evil is going to get its butt kicked most thoroughly!

    While I expected fantasy, adventure, action, and an interesting story, I did not expect to laugh as much as I did. This is well written, funny, and left me ready to buy the next edition. The artwork is classic DnD with bold details and a busy (in a good way) background. There is nothing flat about any of it and I love that just as much as the storyline. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters May 1, 2018

    Even if the reader only knows Baldurs Gate as a video game people played years ago, this book plays well to both new readers and old fans alike. It doesnt take an encyclopedic knowledge of a monster manual to enjoy this book, and is certainly worth flipping through for the miniature giant space hamster alone. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - John Kocot Apr 25, 2018

    Dungeons & Dragons: Evil at Baldur's Gate #1 is a fun, fantasy adventure; its star is the writing of its main character who is portrayed with a charming, comedic appeal that will leave viewers smiling and chuckling throughout. Read Full Review

    This is a really solid offering. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: EVIL AT BALDUR'S GATE #1 is sure to please fans but also is a fun read for anyone who'd just like a light, enjoyable comic book. Plus it has Boo, the miniature-giant space hamster, and you're damn straight it gets a little extra added to its overall score for that. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Apr 25, 2018

    Kotz and Rennee do an admirable job on art making the city felt lived in and the action look crisp. Through no fault of their own, the fact that the setting is night time drowns out a little bit of the characters throughout the issue since most of them have a darker colour scheme. You can see that Rennee tries to bring added colour on each page, like the villain's red cape, but it still makes for a pretty dark issue all around. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 25, 2018

    Dungeons & Dragons: Evil at Baldurs Gate #1 is a fun fantasy read with a likable lead and a decent plot. It doesnt blow the mind, but its fun. Kotz and Renee do solid work on the visuals. In the end, I can recommend this one. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Adam Brown Apr 25, 2018

    Evil at Baldurs Gate #1 is a good yarn but its realistically not going to appeal to everyone. Those with even a passing interest in the Forgotten Realms should probably read this, and for everyone else? You should see the tankard as half full and give it a go. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Apr 25, 2018

    If you need a comic to scratch your fantasy itch, you'll enjoy Evil at Baldur's Fate. It's a safe and fun comic, a fantasy story created by a Dungeon Master for players just looking for some simple escapism that doesn't really challenge any well-worn tropes. Read Full Review
