Next year, Dark Horse Comics are set release RAIDERS, a brand new 130-page graphic novel from Daniel Freedman (Undying Love) and CROM (Birdking).
Marken and Maron, inseparable brothers, are dungeon raiders in a land ruled by corrupt royals and filled with fantastic dangers around every turn. But just as the aging Marken decides that it’s time to give up the raiding life, both brothers find themselves at the wrong end of the powers that be and stumble upon a secret that may unravel the entire political system.
Speaking about the series, Freedman said “Raiders is the most emotionally intense human story I’ve written… it just happens to take place in an over the top fantasy world brimming with monster filled dungeons and haunted castles full of dark wizards, goblins, banshees, giant snakes, undead miners and enough loot to pay off the oppressive regime that rules with a gold plated steel fist. I could not think of a better artist for this book than CROM, nor a better home than Dark Horse.”
CROM continued, adding “Skeletons, swords, dungeons and loot! When I first read the script, it felt like Raiders was the title I’d been training for my entire life. I’ll take dark magic, maces and swords any day but the very human stories behind the characters was not something I was expecting and is just the cherry on top of this super exciting action adventure tale.”
Raiders arrives at comic shops June 10th, 2020 and at bookstores June 23rd, 2020.
