Fire and Ice returns! The beloved sword and sorcery masterpiece of artwork, animation, and storytelling is making its way back to the hearts and hands of fans thanks to a new partnership between Dynamite Entertainment, the Frazetta Girls brand, and Bakshi Productions for both new comic books and tabletop games.

A comic book series is set to debut that will serve as a prequel and continue the themes and ideas of the original film. In addition to a thrilling comic book prequel, Fire and Ice will also be coming to gamers’ tabletops! The expansive fantasy mythos and memorable characters will translate perfectly to the roleplaying sphere where these tropes are beloved by gamers who play the likes of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder as more, with many games taking inspiration from Fire and Ice and Bakshi’s other fantasy films. More details on the exact format and design of the game will be announced at a later time.

A New Pathfinder Comic Comes to Kickstarter!

Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo Inc. are launching a new Pathfinder comic book. It’s currently being funded on Kickstarter and live right now with lots of cool extra content for fans!

Pathfinder: Fumbus is a 40-page standalone special issue starring the riotous eponymous goblin alchemist. The mischievous goblins of Pathfinder have always been one of the iconic roleplaying game’s most signature features, but now with the new Second Edition ruleset and the added alchemist class, Fumbus takes a starring role in his pursuit to join the Pathfinder Society. With appearances from characters like Seoni, Ezren, and more, it’s a chapter not to be missed!

Writer and lifelong tabletop RPG addict Fred Van Lente has worked closely with Paizo’s creative shepherds to craft this tale alongside returning Pathfinder artist Tom Garcia. They’re joined by the vivid colors of Vinicius Townsend, and lettering of Tom Napolitano.

Just like Dynamite’s previous Pathfinder titles, this comic book comes with extra content that will entice longtime fans of the RPG, with lore and scenario writing that can translate right to one’s next game night. Six whole pages of playable content, including new alchemical and magic items, rules for trapmaking, and a character sheet and stat block for Fumbus himself.

Those same great qualities make the world a perfect fit for comics books. Dynamite has worked closely with Paizo to produce comics for nearly a decade across 11 graphic novels. Many of Paizo’s top internal creatives like Erik Mona and F. Wesley Schneider have contributed to the titles, as well as top creators in the comics industry like Jim Zub (Avengers, Conan the Barbarian), Crystal Frasier (Immortal Hulk, Cheer Up), and Carlos Gomez (Red Sonja, America Chavez). As part of the Kickstarter pledge options, fans can stock up on the previous comics as well.

For collectors, Dynamite is offering a fun glow in the dark version of Tom Garcia’s cover, as well as a limited character sheet variant. Fan-favorite artist Ken Haeser is also doing sketch covers and remark sketches. Those looking for the ultimate Pathfinder haul can turn to the deluxe set, which comes packed with an exclusive custom D20 die, CGC graded copies of the comics, a character trading card, a set of graphic novels, and the gorgeous Seoni statue.

Dynamite Launches Kickstarter for First Pathfinder Resin Statue

Image Created by Iconasys Shutter Stream

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a Kickstarter campaign for the first-ever resin statue for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This continues the publisher’s long partnership with Paizo Inc. following years of expanding the lore of the game’s world through comics. Backers can preorder their copies of the limited-edition statue and bundle in a range of extras currently available only through the Kickstarter.

Seoni, one of the most popular iconic heroes in the Pathfinder universe, was an obvious choice for the statue. The powerful Varisian spellcaster is perfect with her intricate tattoos and patterned clothing. The high-quality resin statue stands approximately 12 inches tall. The tattoos and other details like “dirt” and battle damage are all hand painted.

The statue is available in multiple variants. A “Spellcasting” edition portrays Seoni using her signature magic using a plastic energy effect. The “Battle Ready” edition swaps that out for her staff and an alternate pose. The Spellcasting version is available unpainted for the DIY enthusiasts.

Supporters can choose among a range of reward tier options, including Dynamite’s well-received comics, from the recent Spiral of Bones series to a complete set of nine graphic novel volumes – over 1,600 pages of Pathfinder content! Another option is the campaign setting book Sandpoint, Light of the Lost Coast signed by author James Jacobs. And of course, t-shirts! Or go big and get all the above!

Most exciting is the opportunity for tabletop devotees to collaborate with Dynamite and a professional sculptor to develop and create 10 custom pewter miniatures up to 35 millimeters tall.

Dyanmite Entertainment to Produce an Army of Darkness Miniatures Game

Dynamite Entertainment has announced the development of a miniature-based tabletop game based on Army of Darkness.

Designed by Lynnvander Studios (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game, and Dynamite’s Re-Animator), Army of Darkness: The Board Game will see players take on the role of unlikely hero Ash Williams, the chainsaw-wielding, time traveling S-Mart employee. In this multiplayer game, Ash and his allies will lead an army of medieval knights against a horde of unliving Deadite zombies.

The core game is currently planned to include a number of highly detailed miniatures and be supplemented with expansions, accessories, and other separately released add-ons.
