The Press Release:
The Forgotten Realms, the fantasy setting beloved by Dungeons & Dragons fans the world over, is the centerpiece for IDW’s all-new comic book miniseries, subtitled “A Darkened Wish”. Debuting in February 2019, the five-issue series will be written by B. Dave Walters with art by Tess Fowler.
In “A Darkened Wish”, years of hard-fought peace in the Sea of Swords are rent asunder, and legendary heroes must return to the region to defeat an unconceivable foe! Join Helene, a young wizard from the streets of Mintarn, and her friends as they grow from raw recruits to battle-honed warriors.
B. Dave Walters says, “I’ve been adventuring in the Forgotten Realms for a long time and having the honor of contributing to that world is incredibly exciting. I can’t wait to show the fans the power and intensity of a truly epic D&D story!”
“I have dreamed of making Dungeons & Dragons comics since I was twelve years old, but “A Darkened Wish” is beyond anything I could have hoped for,” says Tess Fowler. “Working with B. Dave Walters on this project is the coolest.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I’ve never followed the D&D franchise outside of the awesome cartoon that aired so many years ago, I am going to defer to those of our readers that might be more aware of the property and how interesting they are finding this one. I’ll likely peruse it on the shelves but will hold off on purchase until its a collected edition. So fill me in Dungeon Masters, Knights and Rogue Elves among you. Will you be purchasing this title when it hits the racks in February next year? Chime in down below in the comments section.
