In this issue: A startling revelation threatens the fragile harmony of our increasingly fractious group, as the true purpose of their quest comes painfully into focus!
Written by FRED VAN LENTE, illustrated by EMAN CASALLOS, and featuring stellar cover art by EMAN CASALLOS, STEVE ELLIS and BIAGIO D’ALESSANDRO, Pathfinder: Wake the Dead #4 also includes playable character stats officially sanctioned by the Pathfinder Society!
Comical OpinionsPATHFINDER: WAKE THE DEAD #4 brings the band of adventurers to the city of the dead to raise the dead or risk winding up dead. Van Lente strikes an entertaining balance between recreating the fun of the TTRPG source material and crafting a fun adventure story.
ComicBook.comPathfinder: Wake the Dead heads to Geb, a country where the dead vastly outnumber the living. Like previous issues, this comic serves more as a highlight of some of Pathfinder's weirder corners rather than delving too deeply into much of a plot. Of course, this makes sense because the comic exists to advertise the Pathfinder setting, but I do feel like this comic may have benefitted a bit more from a smaller cast instead of a standard adventuring party. There's just not enough pages to really delve into the characters' motivations while constantly on the move.
