From Paizo Press Release
DYNAMITE TO LAUNCH NEW PATHFINDER COMIC SERIES
Based on the World’s Best-Selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Pathfinder Iconic Heroes Return with New Adventures in Pathfinder: City of Secrets
Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo Inc. announce the return of Pathfinder Comics with a new series, Pathfinder: City of Secrets., out in local comic stores and digitally May 2014.
Pathfinder: City of Secrets #1 is written by returning superstar writer Jim Zub, with interior art by Leandro Oliveira and cover art by Genzoman, Carlos Gomez, Sean Izaakse and Steven Cummings. This issue marks the beginning of a new adventure series and is the perfect starting point for new readers. Each issue also includes an exclusive Pathfinder Roleplaying Game encounter, and a bonus playable tactical map/art poster. In Pathfinder: City of Secrets #1, the Pathfinder heroes head to the city of Magnimar, and danger isn’t far behind. As the wizard Ezren seeks an audience with the Pathfinder Society, his adventuring allies explore the city’s ancient magic, well-hidden secrets, and deep political divides. The dangers and opportunities of the big city could bring the adventurers closer together–or tear them apart!
In celebration of the new series’ release, and in conjunction with New Comic Book Day, Dynamite and Paizo will be organizing special in-store Pathfinder game events, in which chosen local comic stores will become part of the story and game play. Comic shops interested in participating should contact their local Dynamite rep. Further, Pathfinder fans can have their character immortalized with game statistics and an original illustration in the special “Heroes of Magnimar” game supplement, part of the Pathfinder: City of Secrets collection.

“Writing Pathfinder has been a wonderful experience,” says writer Jim Zub.” The gang at Paizo have crafted a robust and diverse fantasy world that lends itself to dramatic and exciting stories. I can’t wait for readers to dive into City of Secrets and see what happens next to the Pathfinder iconics.”
“In this story arc, the Pathfinder adventurers go beyond goblins to face off against one of the greatest foes of fantasy–a black dragon,” adds Paizo Publisher Erik Mona.” And through it all, Jim Zub manages to perfectly capture the spirit of adventuring in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!”
“City of Secrets features a new artist, Leandro Oliveira, who I think fans are really going to like, and Magnimar, a huge new city for the iconics to explore, full of danger and opportunity,” states Pathfinder Comics series editor Rich Young. “Jim continues to take the characters and story into cool and exciting territory…I look forward to reading each script he turns in!”
