Review: ★★☆☆☆


Baldur’s Gate is one of the more recognizable dungeons in all of D&D Lore. It stands to reason that IDW’s cast of D&D would end up telling a tale here. This first issue focuses primarly on Minsc and his brave hamster companion Boo. Minsc wears a purple cape to match his noble need to do justice. Upon entering the town of Baldur’s Gate,  Minsc selects a foul smelling bar from which to begin his adventures. His choice leads him into the path of Krigar the Courageous, who is more then he seems. This beginning story is a simple one that has a nice twist. Kotz’s illustrations are nicely detailed and very becoming a story of this nature. The battle scenes are fierce enough to keep us interested in the characters involved. It would appear that these particular tales will speak to the individuals and their stories beyond the group. Issue #1 is a nice start to what could a fun and entertaining story that will deep dive into the mysteries of Baldur’s Gate. If your fan of the D&D type series this will be an excellent addition to your comic collection.
