D&D Mindbreaker #1 Introduces Fans to Several Intricate Mysteries

Jim Zub and Eduardo Mello’s Dungeons and Dragons: Mindbreaker #1 is an action-packed fantasy adventure that will keep readers guessing.

The upcoming Baldur’s Gate III game promises to take Dungeons & Dragons fans on a thrilling new adventure. To prepare players for the highly-anticipated release, IDW is releasing a new D&D series that takes place after the events of Jim Zub and Max Dunbar’s Dungeons and Dragons: Infernal Tides series and before the events of the upcoming D&D game. Dungeons and Dragons: Mindbreaker #1 is an exciting first issue that introduces several intriguing, interconnected mysteries with a memorable cast of characters.

Dungeons and Dragons: Mindbreaker #1 begins with Minsc, Krydle, Delina, and their adventuring companions returning from their hellacious journey, chronicled in Dungeons and Dragons: Infernal Tides. As the weary travelers attempt to readjust to life in Baldur’s Gate, it becomes clear that the heroes still have more to do before they can truly rest.

The heroes arrive at Baldur's Gate

Jim Zub weaves the beginnings of several stories together seamlessly. In this way, he introduces each member of the ensemble cast to the audience, while constantly advancing the narrative and exploring the landscape of Baldur’s Gate. Zub’s sense of humor shines here, particularly in the scenes featuring Minsc, whose enthusiastic personality combines with his amnesia to create a well-meaning, perpetually confused character. Despite  Zub’s charming humor, this comic is full of high-stakes intensity. From the very beginning, nothing is as it seems, and no one can be fully trusted.

Eduardo Mello’s artwork builds a world that is at once welcoming and intimidating. Mello’s work brilliantly captures the prestigious architecture of Baldur’s Gate as well as the city’s haunted corridors. His character designs are equally engaging and expansive — capturing the thrilling spirit of D&D on every page. The gang of heroes comes together to fight a gigantic cat towards the end of this first issue, allowing Mello to show off his dynamic compositions and his keen eye for action. Colorist Katrina Mae Hao adds further clarity to the action and a whimsical tone to the landscape. The bright array of colors is a welcome contrast to the dark, ghoulish danger lurking in Baldur’s Gate.

The final twist of the first issue introduces a frightening antagonist that is sure to give the heroes a run for their money. Fans of the Dungeons and Dragons Universe are sure to be delighted by this debut issue.
