    While the first issue was a kickoff issue and read as a simple introduction to the series, Dungeons & Dragons Legends of Baldur's Gate #2 settles into the heart of the story. A central plot (the search for Deniak) solidifies, and the narrative comes together as writer Jim Zub adds to his colorful band of heroes. I like Delina and company, and I think there will be good times with them. It is obvious that Zub loves the D&D source material, always a good things when adapting a property as a comic book.

    Now I don't know why the DM had a scene with the prince? Some high-ranking official with two guards recapping what is going on around the city. It was informative and set up a lot of intrigue both inside the city and around it. Plus it promised dragons, which gets me excited because"dragons! And even though all the players failed their perception roll, the DM still told us what the soon to be betraying thief lord said after all the PCs left the room. Shame the PCs were told that is out of character knowledge, would have made the fight easier".. Read Full Review

    Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur's Gate #2 may not have thrilled me as much as the opening issue, but the fantasy elements, and world building certainly made it well worth the read. Recommended. Read Full Review

    All in all, despite a slow-ish start, it's built up a pretty excellent pace over the course of these issues, with some cracking action sequences, and Zub's writing of the main players has become something of a joy. Whether you're an aficionado of one namesake or t'other, or, y'know, both, this'll certainly float your jib (I think I got that saying right"). As for those coming in cold in those terms, you'll be left a little cold by the required familiarity with said source materials, but it gets you up to speed by the end of issue 2, and issue 3 is an absolute blast as Zub bounces through an exciting, albeit fairly traditional, adventure romp.
